USS Buran was a Federation starship, a Columbia-class vessel in service to the UESPA branch of Starfleet in the 2160s decade. Alongside the USS Shenlong, Buran was among the first two starships built to Columbia-class specifications from scratch. (ENT - Rise of the Federation novel: Live by the Code)

History and specifications[edit | edit source]

Buran was constructed under the supervision of Admiral Alexis Osman of the Alpha Centauri Space Research Council, and Captain W. M. Jefferies of the Starfleet Corps of Engineers as part of a new wave of Columbia-class starships.

With Buran and Shenlong active by July 8, 2165, USS Endeavour was not the sole Columbia-class ship in service anymore. (ENT - Rise of the Federation novel: Live by the Code)

At some point, Buran was destroyed in battle. (STO - Mirror of Discovery short story: "First Impressions")

Legacy[edit | edit source]

In 2410, Captain Th'Pev, prospective commanding officer of the USS Buran (NX-96400), reminded Lieutenant Whetu that all Starfleet vessels named Buran had shared the same fate: lost in action with an enemy. (STO - Mirror of Discovery short story: "First Impressions")
