23rd centuryEdit

In 2264, the Masao, along with the USS Lovell and the USS Zander, was retrieved from the Qualor II surplus depot and recommissioned for the Starfleet Corps of Engineers. These Daedalus-class ships were specifically requested by Captain Robert Andreassi, the Corps of Engineers commanding officer.

By 2269, the ship was still in service to the Corps of Engineers. (Seekers novel: All That's Left)
