The USS Repulse (registry NCC-1863 or NCC-1503) was a 23rd century Federation starship, a Miranda-class (Anton-subclass) class X cruiser starship in service to Starfleet in the 23rd century. (TOS reference: Federation Ship Recognition Manual; TOS video game: Starfleet Command)
In late-2268 while under the command of Captain Eugene Myers, the Repulse was assigned to a classified mission to observe and take readings of Ursanis II. Prior to the mission, the crew were briefed by Starfleet Intelligence and told to report their readings to Lieutenant Ming Xiong of starbase Vanguard. To their amazement, and for no reason they could discern, the Class D planetoid was pulverized then winked out of existence when spacetime folded in on itself. (VAN novel: Storming Heaven)
While originally an Anton-class vessel, the Repulse was later refit to Mk I Reliant-subclass specifications and re-entered service on reference stardate 2/1509. In particular, the Repulse was outfitted for duty as a light cruiser (NCL) in the 2280s. (TOS reference: Federation Ship Recognition Manual; TOS video game: Starfleet Command)
