The USS Phoenix (NCC-65420) was a Federation starship, a Nebula-class explorer in Starfleet service during the 24th century.


The Phoenix was built at the 40 Eridani A Starfleet Construction Yards and launched on stardate 40250.5 (2363). (TNG episode: "The Wounded")

In 2367, the Phoenix was under the command of Captain Benjamin Maxwell, former commander of the USS Rutledge. When the Borg made an incursion into Federation space and engaged a Starfleet task force in the Battle of Wolf 359, the Phoenix was on the other side of the quadrant and deemed too far away to provide assistance. (DS9 novel: Force and Motion)

Later in 2367 and still under Maxwell's command, the Phoenix participated in an illegal border crossing and destroyed several Cardassian outposts. The USS Enterprise-D, with the cooperation of the Cardassian Union's government, intervened and persuaded the runaway starship into returning home. Phoenix's first officer, Commander Naomi Chao, assumed command after Maxwell resigned his captaincy of the ship, although she later resigned her commission after Maxwell was sentenced for his crimes. (TNG episode: "The Wounded", Decipher RPG module: Starfleet Operations Manual, DS9 novel: Force and Motion)

The Phoenix was destroyed during the Borg Invasion of 2381, while attempting to defend the planet Coridan III. Ironically, the only two survivors, Ensigns Seareg and Yoralig, were both Coridanites. (ST novel: A Singular Destiny)
