The Battle of Tyra was a military engagement between the Federation Alliance and Dominion forces in the Tyra system in the early months of the Dominion War in 2374.

The Seventh Fleet was dispatched to the Tyra system in an attempt to prevent the Dominion from moving further into Federation space. Of 112 Alliance vessels sent to Tyra, only fourteen ships made it back to Federation territory, severely dampening the allies’ morale. (DS9 episode: "A Time to Stand")

The USS Lexington was among the ships to survive the Battle of Tyra, though her captain, Eberling, was killed in action. (SCE eBook: War Stories, Book One)

Apocrypha

The RPG The Dominion War Sourcebook: The Fires of Armageddon, published by Last Unicorn Games after they had lost their Star Trek licence gave greater detail on this battle: The Seventh Fleet was commanded by Admiral Borren D'gret aboard his flagship, the USS North Star. D'gret organized his 112 ships into a classic defensive bulwark three ranks deep, six wide and three tall in the region between the system's sixth and seventh planets. The Dominion fleet of 248 ships was commanded by Gul Pettar aboard the Gevrok. The initial clash destroyed fifteen Starfleet ships and damaged dozens more as the Jem'Hadar concentrated their fire on specific high-profile targets such as Excelsior and Steamrunner-class ships. The North Star was one of the early losses, leaving the Seventh Fleet without proper leadership. In all, Starfleet lost 24,000 lives.

The Battle of Tyra was a engagement between the Starfleet Seventh Fleet and Dominion forces in the Tyra system during the Dominion War.

The battle resulted in a devastating loss for the Federation with only fourteen ships of the one hundred and twelve vessels of the Seventh Fleet surviving. The losses were a significant blow to Federation morale. (DS9: "A Time to Stand")

Star Trek: The Adventures of Argus

In an attempt to halt the advance of the Dominion's forces into Federation space, the Seventh Fleet was ordered to intercept them at Tyra. However the Dominion fleet arrived three days earlier than expected, destroying the USS London in orbit of Tyra III and ambushing the Federation Fleet when it arrived a day later. When the USS Argus, USS Valkyrie and USS Brunel arrived they found the battle had already ended and the fleet decimated, and immediately launched a search and rescue of the survivors. (Star Trek: The Adventures of Argus: "Trial By Fire")

Participating starships

The Dominion War Sourcebook

The Seventh Fleet was sent to halt the Dominion's advance at the Tyra system. Under the command of Admiral Borren D'gret the fleet formed a defensive bulwark between the sixth and seventh planets in the system. The Seventh was engaged by a force of 248 ships under the command of Gul Pettar.

The Dominion fleet split its larger force into three groups, one attacking head on and the other two flanking the Seventh. In the initial clash the Dominion forces destroyed no less then fifteen vessels. In the second pass the Gevrok, Pettar's ship, managed to destroy Admiral D'gret's flagship, the USS North Star.

The fleet continued to fight for another hour but was too outnumbered and outgunned. As the remaining fourteen ships retreated they witnessed the Dominion forces mercilessly destroying the disabled Starfleet vessels that could not retreat, no prisoners were taken. 24,000 Starfleet personnel lost their lives in the battle.

Participating starships

Star Trek: Swiftfire

The Battle of Tyra was part of a dual-operation including the Raid on Sector 432 to slow the Dominion's progress into Federation territory. Given the Seventh Fleet's success against the Dominion in the war so far Starfleet Command was confident that it would be able to halt the Dominion's advance at the Tyra system, while the Klingon Ninth Battlegroup (another fleet that had experience success in battling the Dominion), supported by the Fifth Fleet, were to cut the Dominion's supply and support lines through Sector 432. (Star Trek: Swiftfire: "Pressure Points", "A Magnificent View")

The Seventh Fleet deployed four tactical wings (a total of 112 starships) to the Tyra system to engage a suspected force of sixty - eighty Dominion warships. The Seventh instead found a fleet that outnumbered it more then two to one. Due to the operation at Sector 432 the Seventh Fleet's commander decided to engage the Dominion force as long as possible. (Star Trek: Swiftfire: "A Magnificent View")

However, the defeat at Tyra negated the gains in Sector 432 and the Dominion fleet that had decimated the Seventh Fleet turned back to Sector 432 and forced the allied forces there to retreat. (Star Trek: Swiftfire: "Pressure Points")

Participating starships

Star Trek: Lambda Paz

During the early months of the Dominion War, the Dominion began setting up a supply line between the Cardassian Union and the Klingon Empire. Initial efforts to cut off that supply line had failed. Around stardate 51102, the Starfleet dispatched the Seventh Fleet to make a stand in the Tyra system.

For nearly a month, the two sides engaged in small-scale hit-and-run attacks attempting to weaken and divide enemy forces. One successful engagement involved the USS Lambda Paz taking refuge in the atmosphere of a gas giant and outsmarting two Jem'Hadar fighters. These engagements culminated in the Battle of Tyra, in which the Seventh Fleet was at less than half strength after heavy losses at Sector 21607. Only 14 of 112 ships survived the battle. (Star Trek: Lambda Paz, " Revenge a Dish Best Served Cold", " Moral Dilemma)
