The USS Arimathea was a Federation Centaur-class medium cruiser starship in Starfleet service in the 24th century. The Arimathea was in active service around the 2380s decade, and was named for an ancient city of Earth's history.
During the Borg invasion of 2381, the Arimathea was assigned to defend the planet Khitomer, along with the USS Ranger and USS Constant. Although the USS Enterprise-E signaled of an incoming Borg cube, the fleet of three vessels had little chance of defending the Klingon planet. The Ranger had prepared to utilize its molecular phase inverter to destroy the cube and was about to warn off the Arimathea when the cube destroyed it. (ST - Destiny novel: Gods of Night)
