The USS Helena (NCC-80455) was a Federation Starfleet Renaissance-II-class starship in service during the 24th century. (Star Trek: Hidden Frontier; Star Trek: The Helena Chronicles)


After her shakedown cruise in 2382, the Helena was assigned to Captain Tolian Naros's command by Admiral Ian Quincy Knapp. Captain Elizabeth Shelby oversaw her commissioning ceremony at Deep Space 12. (Star Trek: Hidden Frontier: "Her Battle Lanterns Lit")

Under Naros's command, the Helena played a pivotal role in the Battle of Tren'La, launching several Horta at the Tren'La tetrahedron. The Horta disabled the tetrahedron, causing the tide to be turned against Siroc. (Star Trek: Hidden Frontier: "Heavy Losses")

During the second part of the Battle of Tren'La, the Helena served as lead ship in an attack on a Tholian base in the Centris system. (Star Trek: Hidden Frontier: "Heavy Losses")

By 2384, Helena was commanded by Captain Theresa Faisal, who had been executive officer under Naros. Her first officer was Commander Jorian Dao. In 2386, Helena underwent refit and was equipped with a quantum slipstream drive. Under now-Captain Dao's command, Helena departed on a diplomatic and exploration mission to Archein space in the Andromeda galaxy.
