Challenger (NX-03) (or Ch'lenjer in Romulan) was an NX-class starship in the service of the United Earth Starfleet in the mid-22nd century. (ENT novel: Beneath the Raptor's Wing) Challenger sported the same deflector as Enterprise (NX-01). (ST reference: Ships of the Line)
As of Thursday, May 22, 2155, Challenger was still under construction in the skies above San Francisco. On that date, while on an assignment to patrol Earth Cargo Service trade routes, Captain Jonathan Archer of Enterprise pondered whether he might be able to persuade Starfleet to rush Challenger into service, re-christening it Sisyphus, to take on his less than engaging mission. (ENT novel: Kobayashi Maru).
Sometime after, Challenger was part of a task force alongside Enterprise and Columbia (NX-02). The three ships left ion trails in a nebula as they soared towards Romulan space. (ST reference: Ships of the Line)
On March 10, 2156, it was destroyed in the Battle of Andoria, when Captain Roy Dunsel activated the ship's self-destruct and rammed the Romulan warbird ChR Dhivael in a successful effort to prevent it from attacking Andoria and take control of Challenger. All hands were lost. (ENT novel: Beneath the Raptor's Wing)
