The USS Yorktown (NCC-20045) was a Federation starship that was in service with Starfleet in the late 24th century.

In 2365, while under the command of Captain Gregory Benson, this ship was assigned a deep space exploration mission in Sector 032. (TNG: "The Measure Of A Man")

In 2369, while under the mind control of interrogators on the planet Tilonus IV, Commander William T. Riker believed that he met a woman named "Commander Bloom," who was first officer of the Yorktown, at the Tilonus Institute for Mental Disorders. (TNG: "Frame of Mind")

The Yorktown traveled from Theta Omicron IV to visit starbase Deep Space 9 on stardate 47550.1, while under the command of Captain H. Zimmerman. (DS9: "Whispers")

In an unknown, alternate future timeframe, the Yorktown was assigned near the border with the Klingon Empire. Admiral William T. Riker informed retired Ambassador Jean-Luc Picard that he would have the Yorktown run some long-range scans in the Devron system. (TNG: "All Good Things...")


This ship was first mentioned in a Starship Deploy Status seen on Starbase 173 in 2365.

The Star Trek Encyclopedia states that this vessel was a Zodiac-class starship, with the registry NCC-61137.

The Yorktown in "Whispers" was only seen as a not-very-clear name in an okudagram readout of an arrival roster on a viewscreen. It has not been stated explicitly that this was the same vessel mentioned in the altered future of "All Good Things...," but it seems to be the intention of the graphic's creators, since they devised the Yorktown registry and class name depicted in the Star Trek Encyclopedia.

The USS Yorktown was the name of the central starship in Gene Roddenberry's first Star Trek proposal to NBC in 1964. The ship was named after the USS Yorktown, a World War II American aircraft carrier,sister ship of the Enterprise, which in turn was named after the last major battle of the American Revolution, won in 1781 by a combined Franco-American army commanded by Gen. George Washington.

According to the 1994 Malibu Comics Star Trek: Deep Space Nine issue #6, the Yorktown participated in the Battle of Wolf 359 in 2367.
