The USS Malacandra was a Federation starship in service during the 2270s decade, designated as a light cruiser.

Service history and dispositionEdit

In the year 2275, the Malacandra greeted the USS Enterprise upon her return to the [[Sol] system following her test of the inversion drive. (TOS novel: The Wounded Sky)

Given the context of the Malacandra's appearance in The Wounded Sky, it is likely that she was either a Constellation or Constitution-class starship.
It is also likely that the ship was named for the world in C.S. Lewis' novel Out of the Silent Planet.
