USS Cairo

Class: Excelsior-class
Owner: United Federation of Planets
Operator: Starfleet
Status: Destroyed (2374)

The USS Cairo was a 24th century Federation Excelsior-class starship operated by Starfleet.

In 2369, it was under the command of Captain Edward Jellico, who was temporarily transferred to command the USS Enterprise-D for a special diplomatic mission to the Cardassian border. (TNG: "Chain of Command, Part I") The Cairo was deployed to defend the Federation system Minos Korva when it was threatened by a potential Cardassian attack. Following the peaceful conclusion of the crisis, Captain Jellico returned to his command on the Cairo. (TNG: "Chain of Command, Part II")

During the Dominion War, the Cairo was commanded by Captain Leslie Wong, and assigned to patrol the Romulan Neutral Zone in 2374. The ship was believed to have been ambushed and destroyed by Dominion forces who had crossed Romulan space to attack the Cairo. (DS9: "In the Pale Moonlight")

The Cairo was named after the Egyptian capital. (citation needededit)
The Star Trek Encyclopedia (3rd ed., p. 471) gave the registry as NCC-42136 and stated that the Cairo was the Excelsior-class vessel seen in TNG: "Preemptive Strike", although this may have been the USS Gorkon.
