The USS Freedom was the prototype of the Freedom-class starships that were in service to Starfleet in the 24th century.
In 2380, the Freedom was part of the nine starship task force, under Captain Jean-Luc Picard's command, that escorted the "planet killer" to the Sol system to engage the Borg invasion force.
In the resulting battle the Freedom's warp nacelle was sheared off, but the saucer section remained intact. (TNG novel: Before Dishonor)
