The USS Marie Curie (NCC-2179) was a Federation hospital ship in service beginning in 2300. (Hospital Ship Marie Curie)

An experimental Naucrate-class ship designed by Robert Callahan when he was at Starfleet Academy, Marie Curie was commanded by Captain Gaia Starr. (Hospital Ship Marie Curie: "The Beast", "A Matter of Trust", "Under Fire"; Starship Deimos: "Blood Crystals") It was unusual in that both the ship and its security personnel were completely unarmed.

While the ship's command base was Starbase 211, there were more extensive medical facilities at Sector 72 General Hospital. ("Blood Crystals")

It was unrevealed if Sector 72 General Hospital was an orbital or planetbound facility, or both.

In 2304, Marie Curie was one of the ships based at Starbase 211 that wished the USS Webster well on its maiden voyage. (Starship Webster: "Launch")
