USS Valiant was a Constitution-class heavy cruiser in service during the late 23rd century. (Star Fleet Technical Manual)

The SFTM has NCC-1709 as the registry, while Greg Jein had NCC-1623.
In some fan continuities, this Valiant was the ship destroyed at Eminiar VII. The class and registry of that vessel, which was destroyed "fifty years ago", i.e., 2217, was not revealed in the episode TOS: "A Taste of Armageddon".
