|Status:||Destroyed (Battle of Wolf 359)|
- The Saratoga was described as a Ticonderoga-class fast patrol vessel in one fan source. (Kennedy Shipyards: Starfleet Vessel Miranda Class Starship USS Reliant NCC-1864: General Blueprints and Specifications) A 2006 revision of Jackill's Starfleet Reference Manual: Ships of the Fleet, vol. 1 designated it as the lead ship and prototype for the Saratoga-class of strategic frigates.
In 2364, Saratoga rescued survivors of the destruction of USS Artemis. It was aboard Saratoga where Daniel Radke first met Jason Athelstan, a crew member who he later had a relationship with. (Star Trek: The Prospect Chronicles: "Lady Lazarus"; Star Trek: The Cantabrian Expeditions: "Isolation", "An Innocent Time")
In 2367, Saratoga was part of a fleet of 40 starships massed at Wolf 359 in defense of Sector 001 during an incursion by a Borg cube. Saratoga was severely crippled by the Borg at the Battle of Wolf 359. Benjamin Sisko and his son survived as they ejected in lifepods, but many Starfleet officers and civilians did not. Saratoga was destroyed by a warp core breach. (DS9: "Emissary")
During the battle, the Saratoga reported the USS Melbourne was down. The USS Prospect's sensors detected several escape pods and survivors from the Saratoga during the rescue effort at Wolf 359, while the USS Worsaae recovered the lifepod Benjamin and Jake Sisko were in, with Jason Athelstan and Scott Fack assisting them once aboard. (Star Trek: The Prospect Chronicles: "The Burnt Child")
