List of unnamed Federation starships of the Steamrunner-class.

See Unnamed Earth starships for a 22nd century starship that looks suspiciously like this class.


Battle of Sector 001 Edit

In mid-2373, several unnamed Steamrunner-class starships fought against the Borg in the Battle of Sector 001.

One ship engaged the Borg cube near Earth, but was destroyed by the time the USS Enterprise-E led the attack that ultimately destroyed the cube. (Star Trek: First Contact)

Another ship joined in the assault on the Borg cube, led by the Enterprise-E, by firing phasers at the coordinates defined by Captain Jean-Luc Picard. This ship was consumed in the explosion that destroyed the cube. (Star Trek: First Contact)

Although not identified visually, it is possible that these ships are either the USS Appalachia or USS Hiroshima, both vessels referenced in the Star Trek Encyclopedia.

Second Fleet Edit

Several Steamrunner-class ships in the Second Fleet

In late 2373, several Steamrunner-class starships belonged to the Second Fleet.

While the Dominion attacked Deep Space 9, during the second Battle of Deep Space 9, several of these vessels crossed the Cardassian border and destroyed the Dominion shipyards on Torros III. These ships later joined with the USS Defiant and IKS Rotarran, following the evacuation of DS9, for a counterattack against the Dominion forces. (DS9: "Call to Arms")
