The USS Lexington was an NX-class starship in service to the United Earth Starfleet in the mid-22nd century. It was one of the four remaining NX-class ships in active service in 2160. (ST reference: Federation: The First 150 Years)

History[]

The Romulan War[]

Following the declaration of war against the Romulan Star Empire on June 1, 2156, Admiral Rafael Douglas cherry-picked individuals from the influx of labor to the Utopia Planitia yards to spur the construction of the NX-class fleet. Less than three weeks after the declaration the USS Lexington and USS Defiant were launched.

While slower ships defended Sol, the Warp 5 fleet stayed outside the system. (ST reference: Federation: The First 150 Years)

On 10 January in the year 2160, the Lexington led a fleet of Denobulan warships towards Romulus in a bid to get the Romulans to retreat from the Battle of Cheron and defend their homeworld. The ruse was successful and enabled the USS Enterprise and USS Atlantis to destroy the IRW Koto and disable the IRW Chula as they withdrew from Cheron. When the remaining three warbirds were on their way to Romulus, the Lexington and its fleet turned back. (ST reference: Federation: The First 150 Years, ST reference: Stellar Cartography: The Starfleet Reference Library)
