In 2287, while under Klaa's command, this ship was responsible for destroying the Earth probe Pioneer 10. Klaa's ship later attempted to intercept the USS Enterprise-A at Nimbus III, and proceeded to follow the Enterprise through the Great Barrier to the planet Sha Ka Ree. However, the ship was commandeered by both General Korrd and Captain Spock, forcing Klaa and the others to stand down. Spock took control of the ship's disruptors to destroy the malevolent entity on the planet and save Kirk's life. (Star Trek V: The Final Frontier)
