The USS Yeager (NCC-65674) was a Federation starship, a variant Intrepid-class light cruiser, dubbed Yeager-class, in Starfleet service in the 2370s decade. Yeager was frequently stationed in the Bajoran sector to provide support to Deep Space 9 during the Dominion War.

HistoryEdit

The prototype light cruiser Yeager was launched in or shortly before 2373, serving concurrently with the Saber-class USS Yeager. Due to the war-induced shortage of starships when the Dominion War commenced, the Starfleet Corps of Engineers at Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards built vessels from whatever components available. The light cruiser Yeager itself was a merger between a standard Intrepid-class saucer section and warp nacelles, and a 2330s super-sized Condor-class Maquis raider reconfigured to serve as secondary hull. The secondary hull was larger than the average Condor- or Ju'day-class raider, allowing for an expansion of crew from an Intrepid's standard complement of 105 to 204. Like other Intrepid-class ships, the Yeager was outfitted with bio-neural gel packs. However, its top speed of warp 9.55 was lower but could be sustained for 12 hours.

The variant Intrepid-class ship was dubbed Yeager class. (The Official Starships Collection Issue 28: "Maquis Raider")

The Yeager was seconded to Federation-Bajoran space station Deep Space 9 to beef up security in 2373. After the Dominion captured DS9, the Yeager was one of 627 Allied ships that retook the station as part of Operation Return. The Yeager remained as station patrol until the end of the Dominion War.

BackgroundEdit

Named for Chuck Yeager, the first Human to break the sound barrier, the USS Yeager was a background starship seen in seasons 6 and 7 of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, shown orbiting near the station. The ship's registry is derived from photos of the studio model taken by the artists who created it, and can be seen at Ex Astris Scientia's article.
