The USS Protégé was a 24th century Federation starship, a Steamrunner-class tricobalt device artillery frigate in Starfleet service to in the 2370s decade. (ST video games: Armada, Armada II)


In the year 2376, the Protégé was part of the fleet attached to Starbase 612.

On stardate 53551.3, the Protégé was left derelict after the Borg assimilated its crew. When the USS Enterprise-E found the ship adrift but intact, Captain Jean-Luc Picard dispatched away teams to the Protégé and the rest of the derelict fleet. The Protégé returned to duty in time to ward off further Borg attacks and destroy their base in the sector. (ST video game: Armada mission: "Dark Omens")

Afterwards, the Protégé was part of the of fleet assembled to protect Earth from the Borg. The battle ended with the Federation Alliance's victory. (ST video game: Armada mission: "A Line in the Sand")

The Protégé continued in service into 2377. (ST video games: Armada, Armada II)

No further specific history or definitive final fate was established for this vessel as its name was selected for a frigate by the Armada II game developers, and is placed randomly each time the ship appears.

Alternate timelines

In an timeline where the Borg invasion of 2376 was not prevented by the USS Premonition, the assault on Starbase 612 and its fleet marked the first step in the fall of the Federation. (ST video game: Armada mission: "Premonitions")

In another timeline, where the Borg assimilated Ambassador Spock before he could forge an anti-Borg alliance with the Romulans and Klingons, the Protégé was defeated in 2376 in orbit of Earth, by a Borg cube led by Locutus. (ST video game: Armada mission: "The Twilight Hour")
