USS Thagard (NCC-652) was a Gagarin-class science scout, then an Oberth-class science vessel, active in the 23rd and early 24th centuries. (Star Trek: Thagard: A History of the USS Thagard)

As an Oberth-class science vessel, Thagard was upgraded and relaunched from the Thuruthelf Shipyards orbiting Andor. It completed trials on stardate 9585.02 (Earth date 2290) and was commissioned to the Seventh Fleet on Stardate 9622.1.

Thagard was at Starbase 7 in late-October 2294 following the attack on Starbase 29. ("Aftermath")

In the fall of 2300, several starships and Starfleet facilities — such as USS Avenger, USS Malverne and USS Sovereign — sent delegations to a celebration of the Thagard 's 10th anniversary in continuous service.
