The late 23rd century saw the arrival of Starfleet's John Glenn-type starships. The USS John Glenn NCC-2707, for example, proudly went into battle -- alongside the USS Sun Tzu and the USS Enterprise-A -- against an unnmaed enemy in an unidentified planetary system. Though it's never been officially confirmed, the USS John Glenn was no doubt named after the legendary Earth astronaut John Glenn.
