The USS Elkins[1] (NCC-74121[1]) was a 24th century Federation starship, a medium cruiser[1] in Starfleet service in the 24th century. (DS9 reference: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Technical Manual, DS9 episode: "A Time to Stand")

Service history and disposition

To compensate quickly for losses sustained by Starfleet in the Dominion War in the 2370s, the Starfleet Reactivation Plan of 2367 was redirected towards constructing ships of the Frankenstein Fleet. Beyond reactivation and refitting 23rd century Miranda- and Excelsior-class starships, the Frankenstein Fleet specifically included incomplete vessels combined into functioning starships. A Frankenstein Fleet vessel could be built from a hull designed and constructed before the 2360s, and components of the newest ship classes. Officially, the older component would identify the ship's class.

The Elkins was fashioned from 23rd century Constitution-, Enterprise-subclass secondary hulls and warp nacelles, and a brand-new 24th century Intrepid-class saucer. This vessel was part of the Frankenstein Fleet and deployed for combat in the war. At the time, the Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards also had an excess of Intrepid-class warp nacelles and warp cores.

Incorporating the components of newer vessels improved the Frankenstein Fleet vessel's performance. One of the Elkins' sister ships, the USS Contemplation, operated with Ambassador-class components instead of the Enterprise-class hulls. (Star Trek Adventures module: Gamma Quadrant Sourcebook)
