History and specifics
This vessel was conceived by the scientist Annorax as a Krenim temporal weapon ship during a war with the Rilnar in the 2170s decade. However, the Krenim Imperium did not develop this vessel. (STO - The Iconian War mission: "Time in a Bottle")
By the 2380s, the Krenim Imperium was well-versed in time travel and temporal manipulation. Their meddling attracted the attention of the Federation. In 2382, members of Starfleet's Project Full Circle fleet learned about Krenim influence on Sormana, Rilnar and Zahl history, and Annorax's plans for his weapon ship. (VOY novel: A Pocket Full of Lies)
During the expansion of the Vaadwaur Supremacy in the year 2410, the Iconian Empire directed the Vaadwaur to wipe the Krenim Imperium out due to the threat of time travel the Krenim posed. Pockets of Krenim society survived. The Kyana Prime colony retained plans of Annorax's timeship but lacked the resources to construct it. They became allies of the Khitomer Alliance in exchange for creating a prototype. (STO - The Iconian War mission: "Time in a Bottle")
The Annorax became the prototype of the Annorax-class science dreadnought, a dreadnought incorporating features and technology of science vessels. Ships of the class became available to commanding officers of the Khitomer Alliance. (STO websites: Krenim Dreadnought Stats, Krenim Dreadnought Promo)
The rogue Krenim scientist Noye blamed the Alliance for side effects of the ship's earlier deployment, which led to permanent changes in the timeline. Noye commandeered the Annorax and kept it for years in an unspecified time frame. The KIV Annorax returned to attack the research facility in 2410, alongside Noye's Krenim allies from another century. Forming the Temporal Liberation Front, they attacked the Temporal Accords signing ceremony at New Khitomer in 2769. (STO - Future Proof mission: "Time and Tide")
In an alternate timeline where Annorax completed and commanded the KIS Kyana Prime timeship, the Alsuran sector's history was rewritten numerous times by the ship's temporal incursions over a period of 200 years until 2374. In that year, a version of Voyager crossed Krenim space and interfered with Annorax's plans after it deployed temporal shields. Voyager was destroyed when it crashed into the Kyana Prime, forcing the weapon ship to erase itself - and any of its actions - from history. (VOY episode: "Year of Hell")
In one version of events, Vice Admiral Kathryn Janeway from the Future and the timeships Aeon, USS Relativity and an Annorax-class ship arrived in the 2370s to fix the timeline. (VOY CCG set: Fluxx, card: "Goal: Fixing the Timeline")
