The USS Melbourne (NCC-62043) was an Excelsior-class explorer in service during the 24th century.

History and specifications[edit | edit source]

In 2364, the Melbourne was docked at Starbase 74 at the same time as the USS Enterprise-D, undergoing repairs. When the Enterprise was subsequently stolen by the Bynars repairs on the Melbourne were rushed as it was the only vessel that could travel fast enough to catch the Enterprise. (TNG episode: "11001001")

By the mid 2360s a Nebula-class replacement was under construction to replace the Melbourne, and the new Melbourne was ready by 2367. Both the old and new Melbourne were sent to the Wolf 359 system to face the Borg, and both ships were subsequently lost in the course of the battle. (TNG episodes: "The Best of Both Worlds, Part I", "The Best of Both Worlds, Part II"; DS9 episode & novelization: Emissary, DS9 comic: "Program 359")

In 2373 the USS Voyager discovered one of the escape pods from the USS Melbourne with survivors aboard. The escape pod (along with several others) had been trapped in a rift where time flowed at a different rate. Unfortunately the survivors had to re-enter the rift to prevent Voyager from being trapped inside. (VOY comic: "Ghosts")
