The USS Malinche (NCC-38997) was an Federation Excelsior-class exploration cruiser starship in service during the 24th century. (DS9 episode: "For the Uniform")


By 2363, the Malinche was under the command of Captain George Sanders. (TNG novel: The Buried Age)

In mid 2373, the Malinche was assigned to patrol the Demilitarized Zone near the Gamma 7 Outpost. When Maquis leader Michael Eddington disabled the USS Defiant with a cascade virus, the Malinche towed that ship back to Deep Space 9, and assumed their mission to stop Eddington at Veloz Prime. However, they responded to a distress call en route, only to discover a Maquis booby trap. The disabled Malinche was then rescued by the Defiant, which eventually succeeded in apprehending Eddington. (DS9 episode: "For the Uniform")

In 2376, the Malinche relieved the USS da Vinci from clean-up operations on the Tellarite colony of Maeglin following the Gateways Crisis. (SCE eBook: Here There Be Monsters)

In early 2380, Admiral William Ross considered sending the Malinche to the Romulan border. (ST novel: Articles of the Federation)

On stardate 58199.3, during the Borg Invasion of 2381, the Malinche was to join the fleet led by the USS Venture defending the Andorian system, but their route allowed them to intercept the Borg in interstellar space. The Malinche was destroyed during its engagement with the six cubes. (ST novel: A Singular Destiny)

In 2410, the Malinche was positioned in the Badlands to coordinate efforts to halt the advance of the Terran Empire. (Star Trek Online)
