The writers of the episode intended the Prometheus to be a much smaller vessel, since the ship was described in the script as being "not in any way noteworthy or obtrusive". Also, it was said later to only have a small crew – a Nebula級 starship has almost the same amount of deck space as a Galaxy級 vessel, and thus has room aboard for several hundred people.
The vessel must have been withdrawn from service, renamed or destroyed prior to 2374 to make way for the commissioning of the Prometheus級 prototype of the same name. Two shots originally used for the USS Prometheus docked at Deep Space 9 were later reused in "Second Sight" to represent other vessels. Both the USSLexington (DS9: Explorers) and the USST'Kumbra (DS9: Take Me Out to the Holosuite) were represented using shots showing the ship below the station's equatorial axis, as well as an unnamed transport.

The Prometheus was one of the four Nebula-class starships featured in the video game Star Trek: Bridge Commander. Oddly enough, the game was set in 2378, at least five years after the launch of the Prometheus-class USS Prometheus. This seems to indicate that both Prometheuses were still in service with the same name, according to the game.
