The USS Al-Batani (NCC-42995) was a Federation Excelsior-class explorer in service to Starfleet in the mid to late 24th century and continued service in the early 25th century.

Service history and disposition[edit | edit source]

In 2357, the Al-Batani was undergoing an overhaul and command was given to Admiral Owen Paris for a five year mission. Al-Batani had an illustrious service career. (ST - The Lost Era novel: Deny Thy Father, ST reference: Star Trek Encyclopedia; Decipher RPG modules: Starfleet Operations Manual, Starships)

The Al-Batani was a participant in the Tholian War. (Decipher RPG module: Starships)

Following her graduation from Starfleet Academy, Ensign Kathryn Janeway was assigned to the Al-Batani as science officer. During her tour on the Al-Batani she participated in the Arias expedition. On one mission, the Al-Batani was trapped in a proto-nebula for several days, because of the intense gravimetric forces. (VOY episodes: "Caretaker", "Bride of Chaotica!", "Live Fast and Prosper", "Shattered")

Note: In Mosaic, the ship that participated in the Arias expedition was the USS Icarus.

In 2372, Starfleet Command dispatched the Al-Batani to the Pantera Nebula to assist the USS Enterprise-E once a Changeling infiltrator had been discovered aboard her. (TNG eBook: A Sea of Troubles)

Prior to 2378, Christine Vale served on the Al-Batani and was romantically involved with someone. (TNG novel: A Time to Hate)

The Al-Batani was in service in 2379. (TNG video game: Starfleet Command III)

The Al-Batani was in Earth Spacedock in 2410. (ST video game: Star Trek Online [Season 9])
