The Springfield class was a type of Federation starship that was in service with Starfleet during the late 24th century.
n late 2367, the USS Chekov was one of 40 starships mobilized at Wolf 359 to intercept a Borg cube en route to Sector 001. The Chekov engaged the Borg at the subsequent battle where it was destroyed, along with the rest of the fleet. The ship's name was an homage to the original series character Pavel Chekov. This starship (named Chekhov, after the Russian writer, in the episode script) was originally to be mentioned by name in dialogue in "The Best of Both Worlds", but the writers ultimately felt that the debris field that remained of Humanity's apparent last stand was no place for such a "cute" reference, and the USS Tolstoy was dubbed in during post-production to replace it.
The name of this ship was derived from Ed Miarecki, the creator of the design study and filming model of the Chekov.
