USS Hood (NCC-1703) was a Constitution-class heavy cruiser in Starfleet service during the second half of the 23rd century.

Star Fleet Technical Manual gives the registry as NCC-1707.

Commissioned in 2259 and commanded by Captain Jack Raintree, it was the first starship equipped with phasers. (Orion Press: "Remember the Hood")

In 2268, the Hood participated in a fleet war games exercise. This exercise put four starships against the M-5 controlled USS Enterprise (NCC-1701). The M-5 malfunctioned, causing the Enterprise to fire full-powered phasers at the minimally-defended Excalibur, severely damaging the ship. (TOS: "The Ultimate Computer")

John Russell captained the Hood from 2268-2272 until relieved by Therin. (Starship Saladin: "Tour of Duty") Therin captained the Hood from 2272 to 2293. (Australian fanzines Data, Kiron III, and the New Zealand fanzine, Katra)

The Hood received a refit in 2274 and would continue to serve until it was decommissioned in 2293. (Ship Recognition Manual, Volume 4: Starships of the Original Series Era)
