The USS Van Gelder (NCC-10010) was a 24th century Federation starship, the prototype M'Benga-class rescue/hospital ship. This vessel entered Starfleet service on reference stardate 2/9205, and remained in active service until at least the 2360s decade.

This hospital ship was named for 23rd century Doctor Simon Van Gelder, a Human pioneer of psychology and neural neutralization medicine. (FASA RPG module: Star Trek: The Next Generation Officer's Manual)
