The USS Cait was a Federation Galaxy-class large exploration cruiser under construction for Starfleet in the early 25th century.

The Cait was part of the twenty-third production series of Galaxy-class starships, the so-called Planet-class, and was named for the planet Cait, homeworld to the Caitians. The ship was nearing completion in August 2409. (Bait and Switch: "Shakedown Shenanigans")
