Circa Stardate 54566.1 (July 26, 2377), the Douglass was assimilated by the Borg during their incursion into Federation space in 2377. When Starfleet secured the Starbase 176 system, the Borg attempted to escort the Douglass out of the sector. A fleet led by USS Enterprise-E apprehended the convoy, and two accompanying Iwo Jima-class assault ships succeeded in retaking the Douglass. (TNG video game: Armada II mission: Recovery)
- The Douglass may have been named for Frederick Douglass.
