The USS Centaur (NCC-42043) was the prototype Federation Centaur-class medium cruiser starship in Starfleet service in the 23rd and 24th centuries. The Centaur was in active service around the 2370s decade, and was named a type of being from Greek mythology. In the 2370s, the Centaur was commanded by Captain Charlie Reynolds. (ST novel: Articles of the Federation, ST video game: Legacy)
In 2374, the Centaur engaged a Jem'Hadar attack ship near the Cardassian border, not knowing that Benjamin Sisko was actually commanding it. Sisko had Chief O'Brien target the Centaur's weapons after their communication system was damaged. leaving them unable to contact the Centaur. After detecting three other Dominion ships heading their way, the Centaur retreated back to Federation space. (DS9 episode: "A Time to Stand")
The Centaur later travelled to the Argolis Cluster to distract the Dominion forces there so the USS Defiant could destroy a sensor array and also participated in the battle to retake Deep Space 9. (DS9 novelization: ...Sacrifice of Angels)
