The USS Malinche (NCC-38997) was a Federation starship, an Excelsior-class exploration cruiser in Starfleet service in the in the 24th[1] and 25th[2] centuries. (DS9 episode: "For the Uniform", STO - Victory Is Life mission: "Badlands Battlezone")

Service history and disposition[edit | edit source]

By 2363, the Malinche was under the command of Captain George Sanders. (TNG novel: The Buried Age)

In mid-2373, the Malinche was assigned to patrol the Demilitarized Zone near the Gamma 7 Outpost. When Maquis leader Michael Eddington disabled the USS Defiant with a cascade virus, the Malinche towed that ship back to Deep Space 9, and assumed their mission to stop Eddington at Veloz Prime. However, they responded to a distress call en route, only to discover a Maquis booby trap. The disabled Malinche was then rescued by the Defiant, which eventually succeeded in apprehending Eddington. (DS9 episode: "For the Uniform")

In 2376, the Malinche relieved the USS da Vinci from clean-up operations on the Tellarite colony of Maeglin following the Gateways Crisis. (SCE eBook: Here There Be Monsters)

In early 2380, Admiral William Ross considered sending the Malinche to the Romulan border. (ST novel: Articles of the Federation)

Destruction[edit | edit source]

On stardate 58199.3, during the Borg Invasion of February 2381, the Malinche was to join the fleet led by the USS Venture defending the Andorian system, but their route allowed them to intercept the Borg in interstellar space. The Malinche was destroyed during its engagement with the six cubes. (ST novel: A Singular Destiny)

The Malinche appears later in active service in Star Trek Online despite its destruction.

Later service[edit | edit source]

The Malinche in the Badlands.

By 2410, the Malinche had returned to service. Commander Mesi Achebe commanded the ship and coordinated an Alpha Quadrant Alliance fleet in the Badlands when Admiral Leeta and the Terran Empire attempted another invasion. Achebe advised the Allied captains how to engage the Terran forces and disable their space stations and satellites. (STO - Victory Is Life mission: "Badlands Battlezone")
