USS Valley Forge

Class: Excelsior-class
Registry: NCC-43305
Owner: United Federation of Planets
Operator: Starfleet
Status: Heavily damaged (2374)

The USS Valley Forge (NCC-43305) was a 24th century Federation Excelsior-class starship operated by Starfleet. The Valley Forge fought in the Dominion War and, in late 2374, saw action at the First Battle of Chin'toka. She took heavy damage during an attack run against Cardassian orbital weapon platforms when a crippled Akira-class starship crashed into her starboard nacelle, followed by several disruptor hits that penetrated her primary hull. (DS9: "Tears of the Prophets")

The Valley Forge's appearance in "Tears of the Prophets" was confirmed by John Gross and Karen Sickles of Digital Muse in a 25 June 1998 post, by DS9 Visual Effects Supervisor David Stipes, on the newsgroup
This ship was most likely named after the American Revolution encampment and training ground outside of Philadelphia. It may also have been named after one of the United States Navy's ships of the same name or the Valley Forge space freighter from Silent Running, a 1972 science fiction film.
