The USS Lexington was a 24th century Federation Nebula-class starship operated by Starfleet.

In 2365, Captain Wil Thoms was the commanding officer of this ship. In that year, the Lexington was assigned a planetary exploration mission in Sector 028. The ship was listed on the Starship Deploy Status chart that was on display in the courtroom of Starbase 173. (TNG: "The Measure Of A Man", okudagram)

Many new graduates of Starfleet Academy in 2369 considered the Lexington a plum assignment and fiercely competed for an assignment aboard her. Doctor Elizabeth Lense, who graduated as a valedictorian from the Starfleet Medical Academy that year, was assigned as the Lexington's new chief medical officer. Thereafter, the Lexington embarked on an interstellar charting mission. (DS9: "Explorers")

In 2370, the Lexington rendezvoused with the USS Enterprise-D to load supplies for transport to the Taranko colony. (TNG: "Thine Own Self")

In a virtual reality created by the Founders in early 2371, Jadzia Dax was transferred to the Lexington as its new science officer. (DS9: "The Search, Part II")

Following its interstellar charting mission in late 2371, it docked at Deep Space 9 for shore leave. (DS9: "Explorers")

In 2373, the Lexington fought against the second Borg invasion at the Battle of Sector 001. After the initial contact with the cube, the Lexington's first casualty report listed 96 dead, and 22 wounded. (Star Trek: First Contact)

Appendices Edit

Background information Edit

The Lexington's appearance in "Explorers" was reused footage of the USS Prometheus from "Second Sight". Despite its appearance as a Nebula-class, it was described as a Galaxy-class starship in the episode's script. The Lexington's registry was stated as being "NCC-61832" in the Star Trek Encyclopedia (3rd ed., p. 264).

The Star Trek Encyclopedia (3rd ed., p. 264) and describes the Lexington from "Thine Own Self" to be an Excelsior-class starship with the registry number NCC-14427. As the ship was not seen in that episode, it would be unnecessary to think it wasn't the Nebula-class Lexington as it was already in service by 2369 according to "Explorers".

The closed captioning on the VHS version of Star Trek: First Contact referred to the Lexicon and not the Lexington. This had been changed on the closed captioning for the Special Collector's Edition DVD. However, the audio does sound like it could be either one, so the presence of either ship was possible.

The Lexington was named for the first battle of the American Revolution, and the series of United States Naval vessels named "Lexington". (Star Trek Encyclopedia 3rd ed., p. 264)
