The USS Rhode Island (NCC-72701) was a 25th century refit Nova-class Federation starship operated by Starfleet in an alternate timeline.
Even though the original Nova-class from the 2370s was limited to a maximum warp factor of 8 and was considered a planetary research vessel, the Rhode Island was designed for long term deep space assignments.
The Rhode Island was commanded by Captain Harry Kim, and assigned to a four-year exploration mission. In 2404, the Rhode Island defended Admiral Janeway's shuttlecraft when it came under attack by two Klingon Negh'var warships. (VOY: "Endgame")
The fully illustrated magazine includes details on the USS Rhode Island's design and specifications as well as an inside look at "Unimatrix Zero"
