Service history and disposition

The first Steamrunner USS Appalachia (NCC-52316) was active in the 2370s decade and participated in the Dominion War. Unfortunately. the ship was destroyed in the Phicus star system in 2375. (SCE - War Stories eBook: Book 2)

The replacement Appalachia entered service in the year 2376. (ST video game: Armada)

No specific history or definitive final fate was established for this vessel as its name was selected for a frigate by the Armada game developers, and is placed randomly most of the time the ship appears.

In the same year, the Appalachia was docked at Starbase 51 and was undergoing a refit. (DS9 - Mission Gamma novel: Lesser Evil)

The Appalachia was fitted with a tricobalt torpedo launcher that allowed it to strike targets from a range. Ships of the class could also fire a beam that overloaded the engines of enemy vessels at close range. The ship was involved in repelling the Borg Invasion of 2376. (ST video game: Armada)

When Locutus led a Borg fleet into the Sol star system, Starfleet deployed all available heavy frigates against the Borg Collective to defend Earth. (ST video game: Armada mission: "A Line in the Sand")

Six months later, 2377, Starfleet suffered an attack by Gul Kentar's insurrectionist forces in the Pearl Nebula, and defended the galaxy during the Borg Invasion of 2377 and a Species 8472 incursion. The Appalachia was one of the ships involved in combat. (ST video game: Armada II)

In 2379, the Appalachia was available for a training simulation at Starfleet Academy by Carey. (ST video game: Armada, tutorial missions)

The ship remained active into the 25th century. In the 2400s, Steamrunners were rated as blockade runner escorts. Ships of the class participated in the Federation-Klingon War of 2405-2410. (STO - Klingon War mission: "Welcome to Earth Spacedock")

Khitomer Alliance flag officer in, or aligned with, Starfleet, deployed Appalachia for missions around the galaxy's four quadrants as part of the four-quadrant strategy from 2410 onward. (STO - Klingon War mission: "Welcome to Earth Spacedock", admiralty system on Xbox)
