In 2371, the Monitor was assigned a covert mission to destroy the Borg Homeworld, fitted with a Transwarp drive and command was temporarily handed over to Ambassador Spock. Before departing on the mission, Captain Lewinski had the name "USS Enterprise" painted on her hull as a tribute to her new temporary crew.
The ship reached the Borg Homeworld in the Delta Quadrant where it engaged a joint Romulan-Borg armada, Destroying the Romulan Flagship IRW Avatar of Tomed. The Enterprise discovered the Central Node of the Borg Collective although the Enterprise was too damaged to destroy it, James T. Kirk apparently sacrificed himself to destroy the Node and therefore severed the contection of the collective. the Enterprise then headed back to the Alpha Quadrant.
In 2375, the Monitor was lost with all hands while conducting tests on her transwarp drive traveling between Starbases 324 and 718 with a skeleton crew of thirty-eight, twenty of whom were warp engineers/specialists. While conducting the tests the Monitor was swept into Intra-galactic space between the Milky Way and Andromeda Galaxies, 350,000 light-years from the Milky Way with an inoperative Transwarp drive and a centuries long return trip home, at warp speeds, ahead of them.
Three years later, the Monitor, which was about to be destroyed by a phenomenon the crew dubbed "The Distortion" (later revealed to have been a "projection" of the Totality) relayed a burst transmission to the Federation by way of the Kelvan Expeditionary Return Probes warning them of the threat of the Distortion.
