Star Trek Expanded Universe

USS Gibraltar (NCC-1859) was an Constitution-class heavy cruiser on active duty in the late 23rd and 24th centuries. (Star Trek: Gibraltar)


Originally launched in 2286 as the upgraded variant Constitution-class USS Hood, the ship was decommissioned in 2316. Stripped of its name, the vessel was mothballed at the Dalashni V Long-term Storage Anchorage. Following the Tomed Incident in 2341, the vessel was refitted as a hospital ship and rechristened the USS Gibraltar, though it retained its original registry as NCC-1859. After fourteen months, the ship completed its humanitarian assignment along the Federation/Romulan border and was returned to storage.

In 2375, in an effort to bolster Starfleet's ship numbers in the face of severe attrition during the Dominion War, the Gibraltar was once again resurrected from the boneyards and refitted with 24th century technology. An eight-month refurbishment at Starbase 234 succeeded in making the starship serviceable. However, its 2376 launch date came after the war's conclusion.

Under the command of Captain Donald Sandhurst, the ship carried out patrol, diplomatic, and escort duties along the post-war Federation/Cardassian border.
