Following the destruction of the USS Belfast, Captain Shon and many of the other surviving crew members of that ship were reassigned to the newly launched starship Enterprise, on Data's recommendation. (STO short story: "Unexpected Honor", STO mission: "Boldly They Rode")
One of the ship's first engagements was as part of a fleet to retake Deep Space 9 from a brief accidental Dominion occupation of the station. The station was successfully recovered. (STO mission: "Boldly They Rode")
The Enterprise deployed Shon to an Iconian gateway on New Romulus. Shon's first officer Commander Samuel Winters subsequently commanded the ship in battle against an Elachi fleet that entered the Jouret system through a space gate. After the battle was over the Enterprise scanned the gateway only to have its computers automatically lock up in accordance with the Omega Directive after detecting Omega particles. (STO mission: "Sphere of Influence")
Later the Enterprise followed the RRW Lleiset and IKS Bortasqu' through another gate over the star at the center of the Solanae Dyson sphere and engaged an Undine fleet that blasted its way into the Jenolan Dyson sphere. Shon then became embroiled in a three-way standoff with the other two flagships' captains over political control of the sphere, which was temporarily defused by some fast talking by Rear Admiral Tuvok. (STO mission: "A Step Between Stars")
The Enterprise-F later returned to the Jenolan Dyson Sphere as part of a Federation delegation present at a summit to discuss ownership of the sphere as well as the threat posed by the Undine. The summit was cut short when a massive Undine armada appeared, using the Iconian gateway in the Jenolan sphere to enter the Alpha Quadrant and launch an assault on Earth. The Enterprise-F secured the moon while the flagships of the Romulan Republic and Klingon Empire eliminated the Undine vessels over Earth. Once it was discovered that the attack was a diversion to the Undine's true target of Qo'noS, the Enterprise gathered as many Starfleet vessels as possible before heading to the Klingon homeworld to assist in the counterattack. During the battle, the Undine revealed a massive new planet-killer, Captain Shon using the Enterprise's Aquarius attack craft to destroy it by ramming it head-on. (STO mission: "Surface Tension")
- This section describes the alternate timeline Enterprise-F established as an Enterprise-class vessel in service from 2382 to 2388 in DS9 - Millennium novel: The War of the Prophets.
In the War of the Prophets Timeline encountered by the crew of the USS Defiant in 2374, the Enterprise-F was launched in 2382 following the destruction of the USS Enterprise-E, and was commanded by Admiral Jean-Luc Picard, who was later succeeded by Captain William T. Riker.
The ship was the first of its class and it was stated that it was the Defiant to the tenth power. It also possessed a multi-vector assault mode; built with the purpose of combating the Grigari threat. (DS9 - Millennium novel: The War of the Prophets)
- The timeline in which this vessel existed was aborted when the Defiant was returned to its own time, and the red wormholes were destroyed.
In the Imzadi Timeline encountered by the crew of the USS Enterprise-D in 2368, the Enterprise-F was in service in 2408 and was commanded by Commodore Data. In this timeline, the Enterprise-F had a crew of 2,023. (TNG novel: Imzadi)
- The timeline in which this ship existed was aborted when Deanna Troi was saved from death in 2368.

Cryptic Studios held a contest allowing fans to enter designs for the new Enterprise in early 2011. By mid-year the judges had selected a final design, and detailed renderings were posted in August. The ship appeared for the first time in the STO mission: "Boldly They Rode".
