Midway through the year 2269, the USS Federation was placed under the command of Admiral Heihachiro Nogura, who covertly struck a deal with representatives of the Romulan Star Empire (including Commander Liviana Charvanek and Subcommander Tal) to double-cross the Klingon Empire during a deal involving Romulan acceptance of Klingon D7-class battlecruisers in a supposed treaty. (TOS - Year Four: The Enterprise Experiment comic: "The Enterprise Experiment, Part 4")
Not long thereafter, the Federation led a task force of eight other Constitution-class starships (initially cloaked, utilizing a Starfleet-engineered variant of the Romulan cloaking device recovered in mid-2268 by Captain James T. Kirk) in an assault against Klingon forces under Commander Kor near Gorn space — involving a stolen Preserver artifact and the Organians—covering the damaged USS Enterprise's escape under fire.
