Service history

After the destruction of the USS Enterprise-D in 2371, the Challenger returned from a mission in the Gamma Quadrant to pick up her new first officer, Commander William T. Riker. Commander Riker invoked the official secrets regulation of stardate 7500, took command of the Challenger, and brought Doctor Julian Bashir, Commander Deanna Troi, and Captain James T. Kirk onboard.

He ordered the ship from Deep Space 9 to Starbase 804, where Captain Jean-Luc Picard, Doctor Beverly Crusher, and Ambassador Spock were recovered. The Challenger engaged the Romulan warbird Avatar of Tomed, acting as a decoy so that the USS Monitor could defeat it. The Avatar took heavy damage, but was able to escape using its Borg transwarp drive. Commander Riker's stay on the Challenger was short-lived: within a year he transferred to the USS Enterprise-E. (ST novel: The Return)

In 2377, the Challenger was part of a fleet which destroyed Borg Sphere 634. (VOY episode: "Endgame")

Alternate timeline

In an alternate timeline of 2390, the Challenger was commanded by Captain Geordi La Forge. Former USS Voyager crew members Chakotay and Harry Kim successfully restored the timeline despite the Challenger's orders to take them into custody. (VOY episode: "Timeless")

The USS Challenger (NCC-71099) was a Galaxy-class starship that saw service during the latter half of the 24th century. Constructed sometime after the initial production run of Galaxy-class vessels, she was commissioned prior to 2371, under the command of Vulcan Captain Simm. During the early part of that year, the Challenger was on assignment in the Gamma Quadrant. (TNG novel: The Return)

Following the destruction of the USS Enterprise-D, Commander William T. Riker was temporarily assigned as first officer of the Challenger. During a covert mission, Riker assumed command and brought the Challenger to Starbase 804, where Captain Jean-Luc Picard, Dr. Beverly Crusher, and Ambassador Spock were recovered. Shortly thereafter, the Challenger engaged the Romulan warbird Avatar of Tomed in order to allow the USS Monitor to escape. (TNG novel: The Return)

Peter Maxwell served on the Challenger from 2373 to 2380 as a security officer. (Star Trek: Pioneer (PNR))

In 2378, the Challenger was part of a fleet which destroyed Borg Sphere 634 as it emerged from a transwarp conduit near Earth. (VOY: "Endgame")

In 2385, Geordi LaForge was promoted to Captain and given command of the Challenger. (Starfleet Command (RPG), Star Trek: Artemis)

In an alternate timeline of 2390, the Challenger was commanded by Geordi La Forge. The Challenger was tasked with taking former USS Voyager crew members Chakotay and Harry Kim into custody to stop them from changing the timeline by stopping the destruction of Voyager. Despite the Challenger's efforts the pair succeeded. (VOY: "Timeless")
