In 2287, the Avenger was part of a relief force under Admiral Stephanoff of the USS Exeter that traveled to Tau Gamma II in order to assist the USS Enterprise-A after Captain James T. Kirk had been captured by the notorious bounty hunter, Sweeney. The Avenger battled Sweeney's ships alongside the Enterprise. Thankfully, Captain Kirk was able to engineer his own escape from Sweeney's ship and the battle was soon finished, with no damage or casualties aboard the Exeter. (TOS comics: "Going, Going...", "... Gone!")
