The USS Vigilant was a 24th century Federation starship, a Defiant-class destroyer in Starfleet service in the 2370s decade. (ST video game: Armada)

Service history and disposition

The previous Vigilant was a Miranda-class ship that went missing in the Perseus Arm in 2348. (Decipher RPG module: Starfleet Operations Manual)

A Defiant-class destroyer Vigilant was launched in the 2370s[1] decade and had entered service by 2376. The ship was involved in repelling the Borg Invasion of 2376. (ST video game: Armada)

In that year, the Vigilant had been assigned to Starbase 612. (ST video game: Armada mission: "Dark Omens")

On 53550.8, Captain Jean-Luc Picard of the USS Enterprise-E received a warning about an impending Borg attack on Starbase 612 from Captain Thaddius Deming of the USS Premonition, a ship from a possible future. The Enterprise altered course to investigate. (ST video game: Armada mission: "Premonitions")

Arriving on stardate 53551.3, the Enterprise-E found the USS Vigilant adrift near Starbase 612 following a surprise attack by the Borg Collective. Captain Picard had away teams transport to the Vigilant and the rest of the derelict fleet. The Vigilant returned to duty in time to ward off further Borg attacks and destroy their base in the sector. (ST video game: Armada mission: "Dark Omens")

When Locutus led a Borg fleet into the Sol star system, Starfleet deployed all available destroyers against the Borg Collective to defend Earth. (ST video game: Armada mission: "A Line in the Sand")

Six months later, 2377, Starfleet suffered an attack by Gul Kentar's insurrectionist forces in the Pearl Nebula, and defended the galaxy during the Borg Invasion of 2377 and a Species 8472 incursion. The Vigilant was one of the ships involved in combat. (ST video game: Armada II)

In 2379, the Vigilant was available for a training simulation at Starfleet Academy by Carey. (ST video game: Armada, tutorial missions)


By 2386, the Vigilant name had moved to the minimally armed Vigilant-class scout class. (DS9 novel: Sacraments of Fire)

In the 2390s, the combat-oriented USS Vigilant was the prototype of the Vigilant-class escort, a design based on the Defiant class. (STO - Klingon War mission: "Welcome to Earth Spacedock")
