The USS Zheng He (NCC-86505) was a 24th century Federation starship, an Inquiry-class battleship in Starfleet service in the 2390s decade.

Service history and disposition[]

The Zheng He was a successor in its name after a previous USS Zheng He in the 22nd and 23rd century. (STO - Agents of Yesterday mission: "In the Shadow of Cestus")

In the year 2399, Zheng He and a squadron of sister ships was sent to intervene at the planet Coppelius after retired Admiral Jean-Luc Picard made a priority request for Starfleet and Federation involvement. Zheng He led the fleet, commanded by Acting Captain William T. Riker. The Zheng He squadron deployed in order to protect the Coppelius inhabitants from a Romulan fleet under orders to exterminate them.

After Captain Riker made the squadron's intentions clear, the Romulan fleet withdrew. The Zheng He squadron also departed after Riker left the situation in the hands of Admiral Picard, who was in command of the hired starship La Sirena. (PIC episode: "Et in Arcadia Ego, Part II")

  • The Zheng He was a new model of starship not seen before in Star Trek. The assembled fleet all had similar planforms to Zheng He, with minor differences in warp nacelle arrangement and hull detailing. None of the vessels were labeled with names or registry numbers. Riker described the ship as the most formidable vessel ever fielded by Starfleet, meaning that the great number of like vessels was supposed to represent a significant display of military potential.
  • The Zheng He bridge was a re-dress of the USS Discovery bridge set.
