The USS Cairo (NCC-42136) was a Federation Excelsior-class explorer in service to Starfleet in the mid to late 24th century. Cairo had an illustrious service career.(ST reference: Star Trek Encyclopedia, ST reference: Starfleet Operations Manual, ST reference: Starships)

In 2354, the Cairo was performing a survey of an uncharted planet along the Cardassian border, when the first officer was ambushed and killed by Cardassians. As a result, Captain Ashford made Lieutenant Commander Edward Jellico, who had served aboard the Cairo for several years, first officer. When Ashford was killed during a Cardassian attack in 2360, Jellico was made captain of the Cairo. (TNG video game: Starship Creator)

During Captain Jellico's tenure aboard the Cairo, the starship was assigned to the Federation/Cardassian border. (RPG reference: Starfleet Operations Manual)

In 2369, the Cairo rendezvoused with the USS Enterprise-D for Jellico to assume command while Jean-Luc Picard performed a secret mission behind Cardassian lines. Jellico was tasked with trying to negotiate with the Cardassians to stop their invasion of Minos Korva, and negotiate the release of Captain Picard from Gul Madred. When the crisis was over, Jellico transferred back to the Cairo. (TNG episode: "Chain of Command", Parts I & II)

Following Jellico's promotion to admiral in 2370, Leslie Wong assumed command of the Cairo. (ST reference: Starships)

Circa 2371, the Cairo's crew worked alongside the crew of the Enterprise in searching for the missing USS Voyager. (DS9 comic: "Vacation's Over")

The starship's name is illegible in the comic book, however the registry number is clear and the ship is clearly Excelsior-class.

In 2374, the Cairo was assigned to patrol the Romulan Neutral Zone, when she was engaged by Dominion forces that had entered Romulan space. The Cairo didn't survive the encounter. (DS9 episode: "In the Pale Moonlight")

The USS Cairo (NCC-42136) was an Excelsior-class Starfleet starship in service during the mid-24th century.

The Cairo was dispatched from Starbase 11 to defend the Planet Q colony from Cardassian attack in 2351. With other Starfleet and Klingon ships, the Cairo successfully drove the Cardassian attackers away. (Star Trek: Pendragon)

In 2369, the Cairo was under Captain Edward Jellico's command until he temporarily took command of the Enterprise-D. The Cairo defended the Federation system Minos Korva when the Cardassians planned to attack it. Jellico returned to command the Cairo once the crisis was peacefully resolved. (TNG: "Chain of Command, Part I", "Chain of Command, Part II")

Under the command of Captain Leslie Wong in 2374, the Cairo was destroyed while patrolling the Romulan Neutral Zone. Starfleet believed the Dominion ambushed the Cairo and destroyed it from Romulan space. (DS9: "In the Pale Moonlight")

In 2375, the Cario was rebuilt with Captain Marcus Hakim, who fought hard to have the ship keep the same registry number, as her commanding officer. (Star Trek: Pioneer (STP); Star Trek: New Horizons: "Stranded")

In the Pendragon timeline, the Cairo was a part of Admiral James Leyton's fleet during Operation Return.
