Service history and disposition
The Stargazer-A took its name from the Constellation-class heavy cruiser USS Stargazer (NCC-2893) that gained notoriety under the command of Captain Jean-Luc Picard in the 2330s. (TNG episode: "The Battle")
In the year 2373, the Stargazer-A was assigned to a joint Starfleet-Klingon Defense Force task force in response to an attack on the Bajoran space station Deep Space 9. Alongside its Intrepid-class sister ship USS Pathfinder and the fleet's Sovereign-class flagship USS Enterprise-E, led by Captain Picard, the Federation Alliance sent the task force into the Gamma Quadrant to stop further Dominion attacks.
On the other side of the galaxy, the task force was attacked by Jem'Hadar ships. Starfleet and the Klingons fought back but the Pathfinder was tragically lost in the battle. The Stargazer returned, alongside the rest of the task force, to the Alpha Quadrant. (TNG - Unlimited - Telepathy War comic: "Heart of Darkness")
