The USS Charleston was a Federation starship, an Excelsior-class cruiser vessel in service to Starfleet in the late 23rd and early 24th centuries.

Service history[edit | edit source]

The Charleston was displaced by an unstable wormhole to space held by the Romulan Star Empire in the year 2293. She managed a return journey to the Federation.

In the Tomed Incident of 2311, the Charleston was destroyed by the Romulans' bird-of-prey Suran. (Decipher RPG module: Starships)

This ship was succeeded in name by a second Excelsior-class starship named USS Charleston. (ST reference: The Star Trek Encyclopedia)

Background[edit | edit source]

This starship was given the anachronistic registry NCC-42285, the same as the second Charleston, a starship in service fifty years after the first ship had been destroyed by Romulans.
