The USS Valiant (NCC-3010), also known as the Valiant III, was a 24th century Federation starship, a Royal Sovereign-class battle cruiser in Starfleet service in the 2350s and 2360s decades. This ship was one of a number of vessels to bear the name Valiant.
An Excelsior-class heavy cruiser named the USS Valiant (NCC-2018) entered service on reference stardate 2/3809 in the late 23rd century. The Valiant II was eventually destroyed in action on stardate 2/8703.
The Royal Sovereign-class Valiant made first contact with the humanoid inhabitants of Haven in the Beta Cassius star system, and remained in service by the year 2364. (FASA RPG module: Star Trek: The Next Generation Officer's Manual)
- No specific history or definitive final fate was established for this vessel as its name was listed for RPG scenarios. The game designers appended the name as "Valiant III" in the book, even though there are conflicting sources both in the FASA games and licensed Star Trek in general pointing to more (or less) Valiants having been in Starfleet service up to that point.
Another ship named the USS Valiant (NCC-20000) had also entered Starfleet service by the 2350s. Captain George Foster served as commanding officer of that Oberth-class science vessel for over ten years, until 2360. (Last Unicorn RPG module: Starfleet Academy Handbook)
In the 2370s decade, a new USS Valiant was deployed by Starfleet for diplomacy and defense on behalf of the Federation. This vessel was a Sovereign-class dreadnought. (TNG video game: Birth of the Federation)
