The USS Cerberus was a Federation starship, a Prometheus-class tactical vessel in Starfleet service in the 2370s decade. (DS9 - Avatar novel: Avatar, Book One)

History[edit | edit source]

After the safe return of the class prototype USS Prometheus in 2374 and the testing of the ship's multi-vector assault mode completion, Starfleet rushed the construction of two 'Prometheus-class vessels, the USS Cerberus and the USS Heracles. Both ships had entered service by late 2375, and the Cerberus served as Admiral William Ross's flagship from 2376 to 2379. (DS9 - Avatar novel: Avatar, Book One; TNG - A Time to... novel: A Time for War, A Time for Peace)

Until that year, Ross's flagship had been the Intrepid-class vessel USS Bellerophon, another starship whose name was a reference to Greek mythology. (DS9 episode: "Inter Arma Enim Silent Leges")

In March of 2376, Admiral Ross travelled aboard the Cerberus to Risa. (SCE eBook: The Future Begins)

In April 2376, the Cerberus led an Allied task force assembling in the Gentariat system, then transited to Deep Space 9 with the intention of establishing an Allied presence in the Gamma Quadrant. This was in response to a rogue Jem'Hadar attack on Deep Space 9. (DS9 - Avatar novel: Book One)

Ross continued to use the Cerberus until at least 2379, when he used it to travel to Qo'noS to meet the USS Enterprise-E. (ST - A Time to... novel: A Time for War, A Time for Peace)

Ross retired from Starfleet in 2380. (ST novel: Articles of the Federation)

By 2409, the USS Cerberus inherited the name. It was the prototype of the Cerberus-class advanced escort, a sister class to the Prometheus design, and capable of multi-vector assault mode. (STO - Klingon War mission: "Welcome to Earth Spacedock")
