NX class starship

In the fictional universe of Star Trek, the NX class was a variety of starship produced by an Earth space program before the foundation of the United Federation of Planets. It was notable for being the first production class of vessel capable of traveling at warp factor 5 (Cochrane scale; approx. warp 4.5, new scale). Ships of the NX class were intended to be multirole vessels capable of exploration, diplomacy, and warfare. The pathfinder of the class, the Enterprise (NX-01), was launched on April 16, 2151.

In the episode "Hope and Fear", a ship by the name USS Dauntless carries the number NX-01A; however, it is not a real Starfleet vessel but a redressed alien ship disguised by the alien Arturis.
