History and specificationsEdit
This is one of a number of ships to be so named, succeeding the earlier 2330s decade USS Yeager and followed by another light cruiser USS Yeager by the closing portion of the Dominion War, later in 2373. However, the Saber-class Yeager was back in service by 2379. (STA novel: Oblivion; DS9 episode: "Doctor Bashir, I Presume"; TNG video game: Starfleet Command III)

Named for Chuck Yeager, the first Human to break the sound barrier. No history or fate is established for this vessel in SFC III as its name was randomly selected for a frigate vessel by the game software. The Star Trek Encyclopedia published the incorrect registry "NCC-81947" for this vessel.
