USS Jamestown (NCC-1843-A) was an Excelsior-class battleship on active duty in Starfleet from 2282 to 2294. It was the sixth spacecraft to bear the name.

Jamestown's commanding officer from 2293-94 was Captain John Cantwell. The ship was deployed to the Starfleet First Fleet for 12 years until it was also lost in a black hole near the Gamma Coronis system. (Starfleet International: USS Jamestown)

Nomenclature[edit | edit source]

The ship and its namesakes were named after Jamestown, Virginia, the first permanent English settlement in the Americas, established in 1607.

The Jamestown has been a chapter of Starfleet International, based in the Hampton Roads, Virginia area, since September, 1982, though the fictional metaphor has changed several times. (Starfleet International: Scott A. Akers, et al., Master Genealogy: Starfleet Region 1; Starfleet International: Vessel Registry, 0801.07 revision)

Jamestown began under the command of then-Captain Stephen C. Thomas in September, 1982. She has had at least three commanding officers: Vice Admiral Stephen Thomas, Vice Admiral Richard Hewitt and Rear Admiral John Winsley. Sadly, the Jamestown, the oldest chapter in Virginia, was decommissioned on September 24, 2016.
