USS Yeager

Class: Template:ShipType
Registry: NCC-65674
Owner: United Federation of Planets
Operator: Starfleet
Status: Active (2375)
For the Template:ShipClass starship, see USS Yeager (NCC-61947).

The USS Yeager (NCC-65674) was a Federation starship that was in service with Starfleet in the late 24th century.

The Yeager served during the Dominion War, starting in 2373, where it was often stationed near Deep Space 9. (DS9: "Doctor Bashir, I Presume", etc.)

This ship was seen in background scenes in several episodes. For detailed information on this design and model, see Template:ShipType.
The origin of the name was a result of reusing the existing decals created for the USS Voyager, which were rearranged (and given an extra "E") to get USS Yeager. Likewise, the Voyager's registry, NCC-74656, was transposed into NCC-65674. The same procedure had been previously performed on the model of the USS Trial, which was made from a USS Reliant model kit, and the USS Constellation, which was made from a USS Enterprise model kit.
The Yeager was most likely named in honor of Chuck Yeager, the US test pilot who first broke the sound barrier.
