The USS Kongo (NCC-1710) was a Constitution-class Federation starship in service in the 23rd century.

The Kongo was being repaired at Starbase 11 in 2267. (TOS episode: "Court Martial")

In 2271, the Kongo was heading towards Centaurus when Admiral Lori Ciana decided to come aboard and tour the human colonies there. (TOS novel: A Flag Full of Stars).

The Kongo was under the command of Captain J.C. Frederiksen in 2274. That year, the Kongo, joined by the USS Halk and the USS Rome, responded to a distress call from a Federation outpost in the Orion Sector. Upon arrival, the Starfleet ships were engaged by six Klingon D18-class ships, commanded by Captain Kresz sutai-Kargon. (FASA RPG: Star Trek IV Sourcebook Update).

The timeline in the Star Trek IV Sourcebook Update claims the Kongo was destroyed when it engaged the Klingons. Unless another starship were assigned the name, or the wrecked Kongo had been refurbished, the ship wouldn't have been able to participate in the novel Shell Game or in Operation: Retrieve.

In 2275, the Kongo was 36 hours away from the USS Enterprise (NCC-1701) position. The Kongo later met with the Enterprise at the Romulan Station Reltah. The Kongo was under the command of Capt Kosnett. (TOS novel: Shell Game).

The Kongo was patrolling the Klingon Neutral Zone in 2293. The Kongo was considered to be a part of Operation Retrieve of that year. (movie: Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country)
