Service history and disposition
In the year 2409 the Renown responded to a distress signal from a Starfleet vessel crewed by part of that year's Starfleet Academy graduating class, which was under attack by Klingon vessels, and aided in the Klingons' defeat. (STO mission: "Field Promotions")
The two vessels then joined up with the USS Khitomer to investigate radiation anomalies in the Pollux system. These turned out to be the result of a Borg fleet bound for the Vega system. The Khitomer became disabled and the Renown fought to defend her and keep the Borg busy long enough for the Academy cadets' ship to warp to the Vega colony to sound the alarm. (STO mission: "Communications Breakdown")
The Renown and Khitomer survived and escaped to join up with a Starfleet battle group that had scrambled to reach Vega. During the subsequent battle the Renown's warp core was damaged, and Captain Vo'Lok was unable to sent his ship into battle anymore. The Academy cadets' vessel rendezvoused with the Renown to mount repairs. (STO mission: "Assimilation of the Innocent")

point of view.
As of the Victory Is Life expansion, the Renown was removed from the tutorial missions and replaced with the USS Chimera, commanded by Captain Nog. Due to bug in the game, Captain Vo'lok's voice may still be heard in place of Nog's at certain points, and the Renown still occasionally spawns in when an NPC battleship is required.
