Following the Cardassian uprising and the obliteration of the Federation reserve fleet in the Pearl Nebula on Stardate 54642.8 (August 23rd, 2377), the Pathfinder was found derelict near Zarush by Chancellor Martok and his small fleet of Klingon Defense Force ships. Martok instructed his warriors to retrieve and repair all of the derelict Federation ships before Ferengi scavengers could seize them. The Pathfinder subsequently participated in Martok's obliteration of the Cardassian base in the system. (TNG video game: Armada II mission: "Uprising: A Dagger at Zarush")
