Service history and disposition
Sally Ride was a Human astronaut who lived on Earth in the 20th century. She was the first woman send into space by the United States of America. (TOS - The Eugenics Wars novel: The Rise and Fall of Khan Noonien Singh, Volume 1)
In the 2370s, the Intrepid-class USS Sally Ride operated as a science vessel. In the year 2371, the vessel was shook by a shockwave after investigating an astronomical phenomenon. (Star Trek Adventures module: The Sciences Division)
The ship remained active into the 25th century. For most of the 2400s, Starfleet was embroiled in the Federation-Klingon War of 2405-2410. At the time, Intrepid-class starships were categorised as tier 4 long range science vessels.
In the year 2410, the vessel was stationed near the Narendra star system, where it cataloged 47 new gravitational gravitational anomalies. It was around this time that Admiral Campbell placed the vessel on detached duty under the command of an allied captain. (STO - New Romulus mission: "Narendra System Patrol")
Khitomer Alliance flag officer in, or aligned with, Starfleet, deployed Sally Ride for missions around the galaxy's four quadrants as part of the four-quadrant strategy. (STO - Klingon War mission: "Welcome to Earth Spacedock", admiralty system)
