The USS Centaur (NCC-42043) was the prototype Federation Centaur-class medium cruiser starship in Starfleet service in the 23rd and 24th centuries. The Centaur was in active service around the 2370s decade, and was named a type of being from Greek mythology. In the 2370s, the Centaur was commanded by Captain Charlie Reynolds. (DS9 episode: "A Time to Stand", ST video game: Legacy)


In the year 2369, the Centaur operated as a hospital ship. Along with the USS Enterprise-D and the USS Farragut, it was assigned to planet Jevalan in the Doltiri star system to provide assistance to the refugees of the recently abandoned Cardassian-run labor camps. The Centaur was assigned to process the Bajoran and Cardassian refugees from the Olanda labor camp, including Ilona Daret. (ST - The Fall novel: Peaceable Kingdoms)

The Centaur was one of the lead ships that attacked the Dominion's Torros III shipyards in late 2373. (DS9 novelization: Call to Arms...)

In 2374, the Centaur engaged a Jem'Hadar fighter near the Cardassian border, not knowing that Benjamin Sisko was actually commanding it. Sisko had Chief O'Brien target the Centaur's weapons after their communication system was damaged, leaving them unable to contact the Centaur. After detecting three other Dominion ships heading their way, the Centaur retreated back to Federation space. (DS9 episode: "A Time to Stand")

The Centaur later travelled to the Argolis Cluster to distract the Dominion forces there so the USS Defiant could destroy a sensor array and also participated in the battle to retake Deep Space 9. (DS9 novelization: ...Sacrifice of Angels)

Altoss was assigned to the Centaur after the Dominion War. (ST novel: A Singular Destiny)

From 2409 to 2410, the Centaur was part of numerous skirmishes and battles that involved Federation frigates. (STO video games: Delta Rising, Iconian War, New Dawn)

In 2769, the Centaur was part of the Federation forces protecting the Temporal Accords signing ceremony at New Khitomer against Na'kuhl and rogue Krenim Imperium attackers. (STO - Future Proof mission: "Time and Tide")
