For other meanings of "Explorer", see Explorer (disambiguation).

Explorer is one of the types of starships as classified by Starfleet. Explorers are extremely versatile vessels by design and are equipped for various tactical, scientific, and diplomatic missions. They are among the largest and often the most heavily armed vessels utilised by Starfleet. (LUG RPG: Spacedock: The Advanced Starship and Construction Manual)

Perhaps the best-known example of an explorer is the Galaxy class USS Enterprise-D, which was in service from 2363 until 2371.
