The USS Puttkamer was a Korolev-class Federation starship in Starfleet service in the 24th century.

In 2363, the Puttkamer, was one of Captain Jean-Luc Picard's fleet of seven starships sent to prevent the Regnancy of the Carnelian Throne from accessing the Manraloth archive.

The fleet, which was made up of the flagship USS Cybele, along with the Puttkamer, USS Tecumseh, USS Malinche, USS Thelian, USS Victory, and the USS Nautilus, assembled in the Mirfak system before travelling at high warp speed to the Kirisha system where they engaged the Carnelian warships.

Unfortunately, the Puttkamer became trapped in a pincer maneuver and took heavy damage before the Cybele could come to its aid. (TNG - The Lost Era novel: The Buried Age)

According to Christopher L. Bennett's The Buried Age annotation page, the Puttkamer is named for Dr. Jesco von Puttkamer, the NASA propulsion engineer who was the technical consultant to Star Trek: The Motion Picture.
