The USS Pathfinder (NCC-74562) was a 24th century Federation starship, an Intrepid-class cruiser[2] in Starfleet service in the 2370s decade. The Pathfinder took part in the Dominion War. (TNG - Unlimited - Telepathy War comic: "Heart of Darkness")

Service history and disposition


The 23rd century Pathfinder.

Starfleet operated a Constitution-class ship named USS Pathfinder in the 2260s decade. On stardate 2901, the Pathfinder received support from the USS Enterprise in a battle against Klingon D7-class battlecruisers. (TOS - Gold Key TOS comic: "What Fools These Mortals Be..")

In the early 24th century, a young Jean-Luc Picard served aboard the USS Pathfinder. (TNG novel: Intellivore)

Dominion War

The Pathfinder in the Gamma Quadrant in 2373.

The Intrepid class entered series production around 2370 and 2371. (ST reference: Starship Spotter)

The Pathfinder has fallen into a Dominion trap.

On stardate 50788.4 in the year 2373, the Pathfinder joined a group of vessels sent to the Gamma Quadrant in reprisal for a preemptive strike against Deep Space 9 by the Dominion. The Pathfinder followed the fleet flagship, the USS Enterprise-E, under the command of Captain Jean-Luc Picard, in the company of starships USS Kongo and the Intrepid-class USS Stargazer-A, along with a number of Klingon Empire vessels. While engaging Jem'Hadar ships, Pathfinder was destroyed, the only Federation ship to be lost on that mission. (TNG - Unlimited - Telepathy War comic: "Heart of Darkness")

This vessel was succeeded in its name by a replacement vessel, another Intrepid-class Pathfinder. (ST - Mirror Universe Trilogy novel: Preserver)
