The Merchantman was an independent Monarch-class freighter operating in the late 23rd century.

Service history[edit | edit source]

Kruge destroys the Merchantman in 2285.

In the year 2285, the Klingon operative Valkris managed to obtain a copy of Admiral James T. Kirk's report on his most recent voyage, which included a summary of the Genesis Project. She traveled on board the Merchantman to rendezvous with Commander Kruge's Bird-of-Prey in Organian space. Valkris transmitted Kirk's report to Kruge, and stated that he would find the report useful. Upon realizing that she had seen the data, Kruge had his ship to attack and destroy the Merchantman.

Although Kruge and his crew believed that the entire crew was killed in the attack, two members of the crew managed to make it to a small scout shuttle before the ship was destroyed. They were later rescued by Starfleet, and reported that they had been attacked by a Klingon vessel. (TOS movie, novelization & comic adaptation: The Search for Spock)
