The USS Providence (NCC-81901) was a Federation Ericsson-class scout that saw service during the 24th century. (To Boldly Go, Star Trek: USS Providence)


Originally launched in 2376 as the USS Marco Polo, the ship was renamed in honor of the destroyed Intrepid-class, USS Providence.

The second Ericsson-class ship launched it was under the command of Captain Robert P. Stuart following the demise of the first starship Providence in 2376. Under Captain Stuart's command, the Providence mapped two sectors and was instrumental in five first contacts with alien species. In addition, the small scout vessel led Task Force 82 to help defend Earth against the invading Vendoth of the Kalium Galaxy.

The Ericsson-class Providence was the second Starfleet vessel to incorporate an experimental holographic cloaking device. The holocloak, as it has come to be known, is used primarily to hide the ship when observing lesser developed civilizations, but also as a means of defense against an aggressive or superior adversary. The holocloak allows the ship to disguise itself as a passing comet or asteroid, or as another ship (e.g. Romulan, Klingon, larger Federation vessel).
