The USS Yamaguchi (NCC-26510) was a Federation starship, an Ambassador-class tier 4 heavy cruiser in Starfleet service in the 24th and 25th century. (DS9 episode: "Emissary", ST reference: The Star Trek Encyclopedia, Decipher RPG module: Starships, ST video game: Trexels mission: "Skirmish")

Due to a refit, the Yamaguchi became the prototype of its own subclass, the Yamaguchi-class tier 6 support cruiser. (STO - Klingon War mission: "Welcome to Earth Spacedock")

Specifications[edit | edit source]

Around stardate 73XX.6, the Yamaguchi was rated a level 4 battle group heavy cruiser. It featured room for four officers and slots for five weapons or additional systems. Its deflector shields were rated 490, while the structural integrity field, or hull strength, topped at 645. (ST video game: Trexels mission: "Skirmish")

At some point during the 24th century, Yamaguchi's spaceframe was modified, and the ship became the lead vessel of the the Yamaguchi-class tier 6 support cruiser and fleet support cruiser variants. The upgrades included a different positioning of the connection between saucer section and the neck of the engineering hull, shorter nacelle pylons, and an additional shuttlebay underneath the original bay.

History[edit | edit source]

On stardate 44002.3 (2367), the Yamaguchi was part of the Federation fleet that engaged the Borg in the Battle of Wolf 359. The Yamaguchi joined the wave that included the USS Bellerophon. The Yamaguchi was badly damaged in the battle. (DS9 episode: "Emissary")

Years later, after having been rebuilt, the Yamaguchi fought in the Dominion War with the Twelfth Fleet. In 2375, she successfully breached the Dominion line in the Battle of Betazed. (Decipher RPG module: Starships)

As part of Federation Starfleet operations in the Trexelian Expanse around stardate 73XX.6, the USS Yamaguchi participated in the war games conducted by Starfleet and allied vessels from the 23rd and 24th centuries. (ST video game: Trexels mission: "Skirmish")

The Yamaguchi also saw action in conflicts with the Klingon Empire, Cardassian Union and Breen Confederacy. (ST video game: Trexels missions: "Events", "Breen Barrier")

In 2409, the Yamaguchi-class was designated a tier 6 support cruiser, and the Yamaguchi itself was chosen as the class representative in the Earth Spacedock shipyard. (STO - Klingon War mission: "Welcome to Earth Spacedock")

In 2410, the ship docked inside Earth Spacedock. (STO - Legacy of Romulus mission: "Welcome to Earth Spacedock")
