The USS Hathaway was a Federation Constellation-class heavy destroyer/exploratory cruiser starship launched from the Copernicus Ship Yards in the 23rd century and continuing on in Starfleet service in the 24th century. (TOS - Rihannsu novel: Honor Blade; TNG video game: Birth of the Federation)

By the 2360s, the Hathaway had been decommissioned. In 2365, the Hathaway was briefly reactivated and towed into orbit of Braslota IV in the Braslota system for a Starfleet battle simulation, in which Commander William T. Riker commanded the obsolete Hathaway against the state-of-the-art Galaxy-class USS Enterprise-D. Although the Hathaway ran on minimum power, had only a few shards of dilithium, and no antimatter fuel, Riker's away team managed to reactivate the ship and place it in sufficient condition for simulated combat in only 48 hours.

The battle proceeded well and Riker was able to outwit Captain Jean-Luc Picard on several occassions. Unfortunately, the war games were interrupted by the intrusion of a Ferengi D'Kora-class starship, whose DaiMon believed that the two starships were engaged in real combat. Thinking that the Hathaway must be of great value to be fighting against the Enterprise, the Ferengi demanded the Hathaway's immediate surrender after disabling the Enterprise.

Fortunately, the combined crews of the Enterprise and Hathaway formulated a plan in which it was made to appear as if the Enterprise destroyed the Hathaway to prevent it from falling into enemy hands. In reality, the Hathaway had merely made a split-second warp jump, thanks to the resourcefulness of Wesley Crusher, the instant before photon torpedoes, launched by the Enterprise, were detonated. Its potential prize destroyed, the Ferengi retreated. Following the exercise, the Hathaway was towed to the nearest starbase. (TNG episode: "Peak Performance")

In early 2368, the Hathaway was once again recalled to active duty and served in the task force that blockaded the Klingon-Romulan border during the Klingon Civil War. (TNG episode: "Redemption, Part II")

The USS Hathaway (NCC-2593) was a Constellation-class exploration cruiser on active Starfleet duty in the 23rd and 24th centuries. Though its keel had been laid down as early as 2276 (TOS novel: Honor Blade), it wasn't launched until 2285 from Luna's Copernicus Ship Yards.

Hathway's first commanding officer was Paul Freeman, with Saavik serving as first officer. (Orion Press: Chekov's Enterprise, "Freefall")

Hathaway was originally assigned to the 7th Fleet until at least the 2290s. Sal Johnson, son of Commodore Barry Johnson, was a Hathaway officer in the early 2290s. (Star Trek: Avenger: "Aftermath")

The Hathaway was decommissioned and abandoned in the Braslota system by 2364, when it was reactivated for war games with the USS Enterprise-D, and later played a role in the Klingon Civil War. (TNG: "Peak Performance", "Redemption, Part II")



The Star Trek Encyclopedia suggests Anne Hathaway, wife of William Shakespeare, as inspiration for the starship's name. Another source claims Ellen Hathaway, recently deceased (as of 2285) president of the Federation Council (Star Trek: The Kearsage Chronicles — Log One).

A chapter of Starfleet International called the USS Hathaway existed in the Middle Atlantic States in the 1990s.
