CONFLICT
Battle of Donatu V
Belligerents: Federation
vs.
Klingon Empire
Date(s): 2244
Location(s): Donatu system
Result: Stalemate

The Battle of Donatu V, fought in 2244 in the Donatu system, was one of the few instances of open warfare between the Federation and the Klingon Empire. (TOS episode: "The Trouble with Tribbles"; TOS - Errand of Vengeance novel: Killing Blow)

Although the Federation ultimately won the engagement, both sides suffered heavy casualties. (TOS - My Brother's Keeper novel: Constitution)

Note on date: Some sources placed the Battle of Donatu V in 2242 based on an estimate that "The Trouble with Tribbles" (23 years after the battle) took place in 2265. The episode's date was later refined to 2267, but the derived date of the battle was not always updated as quickly. Above we use the corrected date of 2244.

The 23rd Light Armored Group or, "Wolfpack", is led by the Destroyer USS Tamerlane

The Battle of Donatu V was an incident involving Federation and Klingon forces in 2243 near the planet Donatu V. More than two decades later, the battle would be seen as "inconclusive" (TOS: "The Trouble With Tribbles").

Captain Ismail Supriyanto led Confrontation Group Aleph aboard the Baton Rouge-class USS Arcturus during the battle. Elena Mendenhall Justice was a second lieutenant in the 136th Marine Strike Group embarked on Arcturus at the time.

During the battle the destroyer USS Tamerlane is badly damaged and her captain Kie Habu is killed. (Tamerlane)

In 2253, on the tenth anniversary of the battle, Melina Endymion would unveil the first of her Peace Sculptures — honoring the dead on all sides of the conflict — on Earth. When official hostilities break out at the beginning of the Four Years' War in 2255, protesters attempt to destroy the sculpture (Star Trek: Shadowstar Station).
