The USS Tereshkova was a Federation starship in Starfleet service by the 2250s decade. (DSC novel: Desperate Hours, DS9 - The Lives of Dax short story: "Sins of the Mother")

Service history and disposition[]

In May 2255, the Tereshkova had a rendezvous with the USS Shenzhou at Ligot IV to welcome its new commanding officer, Captain Sonnisar ch’Theloh, and his new first officer, Itzel García, both transferring over from the Shenzhou. (DSC novel: Desperate Hours)

In 2265, the Tereshkova took part in a joint study between Starfleet and the Trill government of a rogue comet in the Trill system.

24th century[]

At some point before the Battle of Wolf 359 in 2367, the Tereshkova had been mothballed. Following the Starfleet Reactivation Plan of the same year, the Tereshkova was recovered. A single Constitution-class warp nacelle was attached to ship to serve as the Oberth-class vessel's secondary hull. The Tereshkova was then deployed in the Dominion War as part of the Frankenstein Fleet. (Adventures RPG module: Gamma Quadrant Sourcebook, chapter 04)

In the 2370s, Captain Zhang Wei was in command and Ensign Frel served aboard as an exemplary officer. Following another Frel's theft of a runabout from Mars Station Ceta, Starfleet Command suspended Ensign Frel's credit stipend. Captain Zhang sent a subspace transmission to the Starfleet Administrator to have the Tereshkova-Frel's credentials reinstated. (Adventures RPG module: Gamma Quadrant Sourcebook)
