The database lists all canon starships and other spaceborne constructions of the Star Trek Universe by races and classes. Schematic side views and technical specs are included where available. The data is mainly based on the very episodes and on official sources. In some cases, however, obvious errors had to be corrected. Inconsistencies or oddities are discussed in the annotations. More about the database structure here.

Structure of the Starship Database - how all this works

Jörg Hillebrand has provided innumerable screen caps and invaluable observations. Most other screen caps are from Neutral Zone Starship Database or The Guardian of Forever. The photo of the Miranda-class USS Trial is courtesy of Larry Nemecek. Some images are based on Jim Stevenson's Starship Schematics. A reliable list of all canon starship appearances can be found in D. Joseph Creighton's The STArchive from where I extracted a lot of useful data. Several facts about TAS ships came from Curt Danhauser's Guide to Animated Star Trek.
