The USS Prometheus (NX-59650) was the prototype of the Prometheus-class of Federation starships launched in 2374.


An experimental prototype Starfleet vessel that was designed for deep space and tactical based assignments. The first of the Prometheus class vessels was built at the Beta Antares Shipyards and launched on Stardate 50749.5 and at the time was the most innovative and fastest vessel in the Fleet. (

Around Stardate 51462, the Prometheus was hijacked by a group of Romulans who wanted to return the ship to Romulus so that the Tal Shiar could learn the latest Starfleet tactical secrets. Using the vessel's multi-vector assault mode the Prometheus was able to overcome the Nebula-class USS Bonchune, and the hijack appeared to have been successful.

Fortunately, the Doctor from the USS Voyager had been transmitted to the Prometheus via a relay network from the Delta Quadrant. With help from the Prometheus's Emergency Medical Hologram, they were able to slow down the Romulans by venting a knock-out gas into the ship's life support systems, and hold off a Romulan assault until a relief force of Federation starships arrived. (VOY episode: "Message in a Bottle"; WizKids module: Tactics)

In 2377, the Prometheus was part of a fleet which destroyed Sphere 634. (VOY episode: "Endgame")

In 2381, the Prometheus was part of a forty ship fleet defending Vulcan from the Borg. In the battle, it was one of the four surviving ships including the USS Exeter, USS Atlas, and USS Kearsarge. It promptly destroyed the Borg over Vulcan with the other surviving ships. (ST - Destiny novel: Lost Souls)

Following the invasion, the Prometheus reported to Starbase 22, where station's counselor, Brian Ellis, counselled the Prometheus medical staff. (ST novel: A Singular Destiny)
