The USS Adelphi (NCC-26849) was a Federation starship. She was an Ambassador-class heavy cruiser in service to Starfleet in the 24th century. (ST reference: Star Trek Encyclopedia)

In 2361, the Adelphi, under the command of Captain Darson, participated in the Ghorusda Disaster in which 47 people were killed, including the captain. (TNG episode: "Tin Man"; RPG reference: Starfleet Operations Manual)

The Adelphi was still in active service in 2376. (NF novel: Gods Above)

Adelphi translates from Greek as "brothers." However, this ship was probably named for Adelphi, Maryland, which was the one-time home of Dennis Russell Bailey, writer of "Tin Man."

The USS Adelphi (NCC-26849) was an Ambassador-class starship in service during the mid-24th century. Captain Darson was her commanding officer during the Ghorusda Disaster, a disasterous first contact with the Ghordusans costing 47 crew lives, including Darson's. After an investigation into the matter, Starfleet found Darson ignored Ghordusan cultural taboos, causing the disaster. (TNG: "Tin Man")

Fan continuities


Star Trek: Abandoned

In mid-2385, the starship under the command of Captain Tom Farrin was dispatched to provide tactical support to the Inc'Radi expedition deep in the Beta Quadrant. (Star Trek: Abandoned: "Fatal Attraction")

After sustaining damage at the hands of a then-unknown Inc'Ranas fighter, she made the official - if disastrous - first contact with that species. ("Contact") Several weeks later, she made contact with a former Borg vessel, the inhabitants of which informed the expedition of the approach of three Hive ships. ("Solitude")

Towards the end of that year, Adelphi was fitted with Vehrian weaponry salvaged from the planet's rings in the hope that her effectiveness against the Borg would be improved. For a time the results were promising, but after the destruction of several ships the Borg adapted easily, rendering them useless. The ship was subsequently nearly destroyed, and was saved only by the timely arrival of an Inc'Ranas war fleet. She was later salvaged and repaired. ("Realisation", "Final Approach", "Under Siege, part I", "Declaration")

Throughout 2386, the starship made regular patrols of the neighbouring sectors, on the lookout for Borg activity. In the closing months of the year she saw considerable action against them. Along with the starship Odysseus she engaged a modified cruiser piloted by Enriss Temaga, who was perfecting a technology for beaming ships across vast distances of space. ("Deployment") She was later present during the ambush of the approaching Borg fleet, and also participated in the battle to prevent the Hives entering the Inc'Radi system. ("Time's Up")

The Adelphi was crippled in the early stages of that battle, and was later destroyed making a kamikaze run into the lead Hive ship. ("Oblivion")
