Columbia (NX-02) was a NX-class explorer in Earth Starfleet service during the mid-22nd century.

Columbia was launched in November 2154 as the second ship of the NX-class, with several technological upgrades compared to her predecessor. Her first commanding officer was Erika Hernandez. (ENT: "Affliction", "Home")

The logs of the starship Discovery for August 9, 2156 (during the Earth-Romulan War) recommended to Starfleet that Columbia, along with Atlantis, catch the Romulans off-guard by performing surgical ‘calvary raids’ on their outposts. (USS Baldwin: "Against the Wind")

The wreckage of Columbia was found on a planet in the Gamma Quadrant two hundred years after she had been reported lost. It was speculated that the Dominion might have had contact with the Alpha Quadrant far earlier than had been realized. (Ships of the Line; Star Trek: Destiny novel: Gods of Night)

In different realities, Columbia had different designations.
