The USS Rhode Island (NCC-72701 and NVC-1029) was a Federation starship, a Rhode Island-class science vessel in Starfleet service from the early 25th century, and the prototype of its class. The ship was under the command of Captain Harry Kim. (VOY episode & novelization: Endgame, STO mission: "The Delta Quadrant")

Service history and disposition

Early in the year 2410, the Rhode Island was under the command of Captain Harry Kim and assigned to Operation Delta Rising. As part of the mission, the Rhode Island traveled through Iconian gateways into the Delta Quadrant. The Alpha Quadrant Alliance dispatched the Rhode Island to Kobali Prime, where Kim served as the military liaison to General Q'Nel of the Kobali. (STO - The Delta Quadrant mission: "The Kobali Front")

Kobali Prime was under attack by the Vaadwaur Supremacy. The Rhode Island crew investigated why the AQA signal jammers failed to affect the Vaadwaur camps. (STO - The Delta Quadrant mission: "The Temple of my People")

When Rear Admiral Tuvok proposed the establishment of an alliance with the Delta Quadrant, the charter members convened with USS Voyager in the Al'yans system. The Rhode Island took part in the conference as well. Admiral Tuvok ordered Captain Kim to convince the Kazon Collective to join the Delta Alliance.

The Rhode Island met representatives of six Kazon sects in the Bremark system. First Maje Sessen of the Kazon-Nistrim held a grudge for the former Voyager crew, including Kim, and a battle ensued between the Rhode Island and the Kazon factions. Following Sessen's hasty departure after his defeat, the Kazon-Relora, Ogla and Pommar formally joined the Delta Alliance. Afterwards, the Rhode Island returned to the Al'yans system to report to Admiral Tuvok. (STO - The Delta Quadrant mission: "Alliances")

The Rhode Island at Procyon V.

The Rhode Island was later temporarily disabled when Kim's alternate counterpart, the formerly dead and now Kobali-revived Keten, seized control of the KDC Samsar. (STO - The Delta Quadrant mission: "Dust to Dust")

In the 26th century, the Rhode Island was part of the fleet led by the USS Enterprise-J into the pivotal Battle of Procyon V, against the Sphere Builders and their Temporal Liberation Front allies. (STO - Future Proof mission: "Ragnarok")

Alternate timeline

Rendezvous with Janeway's shuttle.

In an alternate timeline, the Rhode Island was sent on a four-year deep space mission in 2400. Four years later, the vessel intercepted Admiral Kathryn Janeway’s shuttle to stop her from going back in time. Captain Kim eventually decided to help Janeway complete her mission, and the Rhode Island helped defend Janeway's shuttle from Klingon warships. (VOY episode & novelization: Endgame)
