Service history and disposition
The Asgard was destroyed at the Battle of Rashanar during the Dominion War. During the battle, a Breen thermal weapon destroyed or damaged every sensitive system on the ship. In 2378, the Asgard was one of hundreds of derelicts in the "boneyard". Captain Jean-Luc Picard and Lieutenant Commanders Data and Geordi La Forge went aboard to retrieve computer logs when they discovered an Androssi Salvage Post. (TNG - A Time to... novel: A Time to Be Born)
- The Asgard was named for the realm of the gods in Norse mythology.
