The USS Prospect (NCC-60056-A) was a Galaxy-class Federation starship in service during the 24th century, operating as a Special Operations starship.
The Prospect was launched from Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards in 2371, under the command of Captain John Greene. Daniel Radke served as counselor aboard the Prospect at this time.
In 2372, on a mission in the Gamma Quadrant to find the USS Rutherford and the folded space drive prototype, the Prospect was severely damaged battling the Jem'Hadar. Arriving back at Deep Space 9, the Prospect crew were reassigned to different ships and missions while the ship underwent repairs. (Star Trek: The Prospect Chronicles: "Directive")

In the Pendragon universe, the USS Prospect (NCC-60056-A) was under the command of Captain Anne Tedesco as of 2379.
After attending the commissioning ceremonies at the new Deep Space 9, the ship participated in the fleet investigating Daniel Radke's claims the M'Tar were influencing the Myhr'an in 2379.
