The USS Grissom (NCC-638) was a Federation starship, an Oberth-class science vessel built to the specifications of the Gagarin-subclass in the 23rd century.

History and dispositionEdit

The Grissom was named after Gus Grissom, an early Earth space explorer. By 2285, at the latest, it was equipped with a tractor beam. (CCG set: All Good Things)

In 2270, the Grissom was a newly-launched vessel, and Captain James T. Kirk recommended that Commander Spock be assigned as the ship's captain. However, Spock decided to decline the offer in favour of accepting a teaching post at the Vulcan Science Academy. (TOS novel: The Lost Years)

In 2285, the USS Enterprise was enroute to meet with the Grissom, when Lieutenant Saavik entered Pon Farr. Because of this, the Enterprise delayed the rendezvous. (TOS - Saavik's Story comic: "Pon Far!") Following the Enterprise's recovery of Saavik and Xon from Romulan space, the Enterprise eventually made her rendezvous with the Grissom. (TOS - Saavik's Story comic: "Blood Fever")

The Grissom was under the command of Captain Jonathan T. Esteban, and was assigned to survey the newly-formed Genesis Planet. After dispatching Lieutenant Saavik and David Marcus to the surface, the Grissom was destroyed by a Klingon Bird-of-Prey commanded by Commander Kruge. (TOS movie: Star Trek III: The Search for Spock)
