The USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-D) was a 24th century Federation Galaxy-class starship operated by Starfleet. This was the fifth Federation ship to bear the name Enterprise. During her career, the Enterprise served as the Federation flagship. The Enterprise was destroyed during the Battle of Marlan Hope.
The Enterprise was commissioned in 1552 N.E. The ship was built in the Sol system at the Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards in orbit over Mars; the vessel's warp drive was designed by Dr Leah Brahms with Commander Orfil Quinteros supervising the overall construction. While under construction, the starship's warp nacelle was the site of multiple murders which were not discovered until 2017 N.E.
