Service history and disposition
This unidentified vessel had entered service by the early 26th century. Outwardly, it appeared like a black Constitution-class vessel in the configuration basically similar to that of the year 2270 but with signs of refit, like shorter nacelles. Its outer hull had been repeatedly replaced and was covered in black, patched-up plates.
After about two years in Shadow Fleet service, in 2549, the Nautilus was on course for the Tau Lyra star system and the nearby Crossfield Nebula. Falling into the range of a Turtledove anomaly point within the nebula, the Nautilus was thrown back in time to stardate 6251.1 in 2270. The vessel, experiencing system overloads and power failures, used its remaining energy to set course for Tau Lyra III, a prespaceflight planet inhabited by the Yoons. The contemporary starship USS Enterprise, incidentally of the same configuration as the much older Nautilus, captured the presumed pirate ship and rescued its crew of six when life support failed.
