The USS Nautilus was a Federation Miranda-class medium cruiser in Starfleet service in the 24th century. She had an illustrious service career. (ST video game: Legacy; TNG video game: Birth of the Federation, Decipher RPG module: Starfleet Operations Manual)
In late 2374, the Nautilus participated in the First Battle of Chin'toka. During the battle, the Nautilus assisted the USS Defiant, USS Hood and the USS Tian An Men destroy a moon that contained the power generators for the Cardassian weapon platforms in the system. (DS9 episode: "Tears of the Prophets")
In early 2375, the Nautilus, with Commander Elias Vaughn aboard, was part of the Twelfth Fleet, which was to launch an offensive to retake Betazed from Dominion forces. That offensive was preempted when the Dominion attacked the fleet at Starbase 19. During the attack, the Nautilus received a message from the Betazoid resistance with new plans to liberate the planet. (TNG novel: The Battle of Betazed)
