The USS Exeter (NCC-1672-C) was a 25th century Federation starship, the Exeter-class cruiser and legendary miracle worker light cruiser[1] in Starfleet service from the 2400s decade. (STO - Klingon War mission: "Welcome to Earth Spacedock")

Service history and disposition[edit | edit source]

The Exeter class entered service in the year 2409. Its design was an evolution of the Enterprise-subclass, a 2280s decade variant of the Constitution-class light cruiser. (STO - Klingon War mission: "Welcome to Earth Spacedock")

In the 23rd century, the USS Exeter (NCC-1672) had been a Constitution-class heavy cruiser.[2] In 2270, that ship had guarded the Rock of Ages, site of the Guardian of Forever.[3] (TOS episode: "The Omega Glory", TOS - The Yesterday Saga novel: Yesterday's Son)

In Starfleet Shipyards Operations shipyard interfaces, the Exeter visually represented the tier 2 cruiser configuration of the Exeter-class from 2410 onward. (STO - Klingon War mission: "Welcome to Earth Spacedock")

In late 2410 and early 2411, the Exeter-C was one of the ships selected for a refit to legendary starship configuration. Like the Enterprise- and Jefferies-class cruisers, the Exeter-C was upgraded to a legendary miracle worker light cruiser, a combination of legendary starship, miracle worker starship, and light cruiser. (STO website: Legendary Miracle Worker Light Cruiser)

During the Second Romulan War in the 2460s, the Exeter-C and the USS Hood followed the USS Enterprise into battle during "the atrocity on the edge of forever" in 2462, when a Romulan faction attacked the Rock of Ages. Starfleet suffered casualties and damage but succeeded in destroying the Romulan orbital warbase with nova torpedos. Captain Edward Sherwood of the Enterprise reported the outcome, including the Exeter and Hood participation, to Fleet Admiral Ian Kyle Riker and Admiral T'Min at Starfleet Headquarters over subspace. (ST - Strange New Worlds VII short story: "Guardians")
