The Battle of Donatu V was an incident involving Federation and Klingon forces in 2243 near the planet Donatu V. More than two decades later, the battle would be seen as "inconclusive". (TOS: "The Trouble With Tribbles")

("The USS Arcturus in History", Star Trek: Avenger: "Belonging", Star Trek: Shadowstar Station: Timeline) Elena Mendenhall Justice was a second lieutenant in the 136th Marine Strike Group embarked on Arcturus at the time.

In 2253, on the tenth anniversary of the battle, Melina Endymion would unveil the first of her Peace Sculptures — honoring the dead on all sides of the conflict — on Earth. When official hostilities break out at the beginning of the Four Years' War in 2255, protesters attempt to destroy the sculpture. (Star Trek: Shadowstar Station)

This is a different Donatu V memorial than the one in San Francisco. (TOS novel: My Brother's Keeper trilogy: Enterprise)

Other continuitiesEdit

The Janus Gate continuityEdit

Leonard McCoy recalled the battle as having taken place in 2242, three years before he entered college. (The Janus Gate: Future Imperfect)

Journal of Applied Treknology continuityEdit

The Attucks-class cruiser-carrier USS Tyson served at the Battle of Donatu V in 2245. (Advanced Starship Design Bureau: Journal of Applied Treknology: "Attucks Class")

My Brother's Keeper continuityEdit

In 2244, USS Excalibur -- commanded by Captain Rollin Bannock -- performed a flanking maneuver that helped decide the victory of Federation forces.

It's probable that this was not a Constitution-class Excalibur, as that vessel was not commissioned yet.

General Korrg was commander-in-chief of Klingon Forces at this time. (My Brother's Keeper: Republic)

Starfleet Museum continuityEdit

On August 22, 2244, the Klingons were intercepted near Donatu V by a task force of 10 ships led by Commodore Ibrahim Proulx of the Valley Forge-class USS Petrograd. Although the Klingons were forced to withdraw after the destruction of 6 more of their vessels, USS Dallas and Siegfried-class USS Sampson were destroyed; and Lancaster-class USS Frantsa Iosifa, Valley Forge-class USS Proteus and Siegfried-class USS Lysander were damaged.

The Valley Forge-class USS Rattlesnake, another participant in the battle and "numerous other engagements," was later on display at the Starfleet Museum. (The Starfleet Museum)

Then as the Kelvin started to orbit Donatu V The Kelvin was attacked by Several Klingon Warbirds and Fighters. The Kelvin was outnumbered and Was nearly destroyed after 6 Hours of combat. However Starfleet recieved a Distress call from the Kelvin then launched the NX-0002 Prematurely to help the Kelvin, armed with only 2 Laser Banks the NX-0002 Sucsessfully Destroyed the Klingon Fleet and then Towed the damaged Kelvin back to Earth.
