The USS Stargazer (NCC-2893) was a Constellation-class cruiser in service from the late 23rd to mid-24th century. Jean-Luc Picard, prior to commanding the Enterprise-D, captained the Stargazer for a record 22 years, from 2333 until its loss in the Maxia Zeta system (2355) (TNG: "The Battle").
In 2294, the Stargazer made first contact with the Nurathi. (Ship Recognition Manual, Volume 4: Starships of the Original Series Era)
In 2302, it came to the aid of a merchant convoy that was under attack by who was believed to be Orion pirates. (Ship Recognition Manual, Volume 4: Starships of the Original Series Era)
