The USS Einstein was a Nebula-class Federation starship in service in the 24th century. The Einstein was one of many Nebula-class starships to be involved in the fight against the Borg invasion of 2377. (TNG video game: Armada II)Captain Howard Rappaport was in command of the Einstein in 2380, when Kathryn Janeway came aboard to investigate a Borg cube discovered in the Alpha Quadrant. The ship came under attack and was assimilated by the Borg during the course of the investigation. It was part of the Borg armada that surrounded Earth and intercepted the Enterprise. It was presumed destroyed in the resulting battle. (TNG novel: Before Dishonor)

In fact, it survived as part of a contingency plan devised by the Borg Queen (perhaps using Janeway's experience as a guide): it was sent away to ensure the survival of the Borg. The drones on the Einstein were former Starfleet officers, and adopted a corrupted version of the Starfleet Modus Operandi:

"To explore strange new worlds - and assimilate them.
To seek out new life and new civilizations - and assimilate them.
To boldly go where no Borg had gone before - and assimilate them."

It is unclear if this lead to any further sightings of the Einstein. To assist in its assignment the Enterprise was outfitted with prototype transphasic torpedoes in an effort to destroy the Borg vessel before it could assimilate the alien lifeform known as Qing Long. The Enterprise was aided by the Liberated and they successfully ended the threat posed by the Einstein. (TNG novel: Greater Than the Sum)

The Einstein in Before Dishonor is not specifically identified as a Nebula-class vessel, but its description as a science ship does not contradict the information from Armada II. In a post on TrekBBS TNG novel: Greater Than the Sum writer Christopher L. Bennett said that he had no ship design in mind when writing the continuing story of the Einstein.
