The USS Archer (NCC-44278) was a 24th century Federation starship, an Excelsior-class heavy cruiser in Starfleet service by the 2370s decade. (ST reference: Encyclopedia 4th ed.)

History and disposition


Jonathan Archer in 2162.

The 22nd century Human Jonathan Archer became a notable historical figure in the 2150s, first as commanding officer of the United Earth warp 5 ship Enterprise NX-01 and later as military leader during the Earth-Romulan War before becoming a Federation Starfleet admiral and President of the United Federation of Planets. (ENT - The Romulan War novel: To Brave the Storm)

Active service

Battle Group Omega composition in 2379.

In the year 2379, the Archer was assigned to the task force Star Fleet Battle Group Omega, and was ordered to rendezvous with the USS Enterprise-E in Sector 1045 in order to intercept the Reman warbird IRW Scimitar. (TNG movie: Star Trek Nemesis)

The Archer conducted a deep-space survey of the NGC-4447 star system in 2404. (STO - Borg Advance mission: "Assimilation")

During the Federation-Klingon War of 2405-2410, the Archer was boarded by hostile Klingons. Crew of the Archer reconfigured a plasma conduit to disable the group of Klingons. This incident was later taught to prospective tactical officers among cadets at Starfleet Academy. (STO - Klingon War mission: "Stranded in Space")

In 2409, the Archer was still in service with Starfleet. (STO - Klingon War mission: "War is Good for Business")

In that year, a tactical officer who was part of an away team sent to the raided freighter SS Azura remembered the incident taught at Starfleet Academy, and rigged a corridor's plasma conduit to fry Klingon and Orion Syndicate boarders. (STO - Klingon War mission: "Stranded in Space")

Later, Archer was able to ferry a group of scientists back to the Federation who had been left on Starbase 114. (STO - Klingon War mission: "War is Good for Business")
