- No specific history or definitive final fate was established for this vessel as its name was selected for a ship by the Starfleet Command III game developers, and is placed randomly each time the ship appears.
In an alternate timeline where Deanna Troi was killed in 2368, the Hood was under the command of Captain Wesley Crusher by the late 2300s. In 2408, the Hood was dispatched to Starbase 86 in order to transport Admiral William T. Riker to Betazed so that he could visit a dying Lwaxana Troi. The Hood remained on station at Betazed following Troi's death and the following funeral. (TNG novel: Imzadi)
- The Hood's class wasn't mentioned in Imzadi, although she definitely wasn't the Excelsior-class USS Hood, as Riker stated that he had served aboard one of this Hood's predecessors.
