Service history and disposition
In 2370, the Bolivar was under construction at the Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards, and was to be equipped with a new, experimental saucer section for use on Galaxy-class vessels. However, when the USS Enterprise-D's saucer was damaged during a Maquis attack, the saucer was attached to the Enterprise. A subsequent attempt by the Maquis to steal the saucer resulted in its destruction. (TNG novel: Rogue Saucer)
- The Bolivar was named for Simón Bolívar, who led several South American nations to independence from the nation of Spain during the early 19th century.
