"At oh-eight hundred hours during the Battle of Wolf 359 the USS Righteous, such a noble name Righteous, was hit by an unknown Borg weapons discharge and vaporised."
Q to Qaylan Furlong, 2377

The USS Righteous (NCC-42451) was a Federation starship, an Excelsior-class cruiser in Starfleet service in the 24th century.

Service history and disposition[edit | edit source]

Captain Nikolai Andropov commanded the Righteous from 2359 until the ship's untimely destruction in 2367 at the Battle of Wolf 359.

In the year 2377, Cadet Qaylan Furlong, the son of Righteous crewmember Lieutenant Ralph Furlong, was visited by Q and offered the chance to go back in time to save the Righteous and its crew. Furlong accepted the offer and took the role of Lieutenant Coris Sprint, the Righteous chief of security, who died several hours before the battle. Furlong successfully prevented the Righteous from being destroyed. To preserve the timeline, Q transported the Righteous ten years into the future (to Qaylan's present, 2377) to help fight a current Borg attack. (ST video game: Borg)

No clear or definite outcome is mentioned for the USS Righteous, only that they engaged the Borg in 2377 after reappearing from 2367.
