The USS Providence was a Nelson-class Federation starship in Starfleet service in the mid-23rd century.
In the year 2254, the Providence was part of a task force of Starfleet ships patrolling the disputed border of Tholian Assembly space at the Diomed Cluster. The task force, led by the USS Enterprise, picked up a distress call from the Federation Theta Kalyb colony and went to investigate.
At Theta Kalyb, the task force was attacked by a Chakuun war fleet. The Providence was the third Starfleet ship to be destroyed by Chakuun ghostships. (EV comic: "The Fallen")
