The USS Reuben James was a Constitution-class Federation starship in service in the 23rd century. The ship was under the command of Commodore Jacob Ross. (ST video game: Star Trek Online)


In 2265, the Reuben James encountered a D7-class Klingon battlecruiser while patrolling near Drozana Station, and attacked it, believing it to be a House of Duras-aligned vessel that had attacked a colony in the Gliese system. In fact the vessel was a time traveling starship from 2409 using a holographic masking system, and the Reuben James was swiftly disabled. (STO mission: "Night of the Comet")



The Reuben James bears the registry number NCC-1701 only due to game engine limitations, as this is the default registry for any Constitution-class vessel in Star Trek Online.

The Reuben James has a legacy name that previously belonged to three different vessels of the United States Navy. The name refers to Reuben James, an 18th century USN boatswain's mate who distinguished himself fighting the Barbary pirates.
