The USS Lexington (registry NCC-1709, sometimes referred to as NCC-1703 or NCC-1704) was a Federation Constitution-class (mk I/mk-IX) class I/class XI heavy cruiser starship in Starfleet service in the 23rd century.

One of the original batch of thirteen Constitution-class built, the Lexington was commissioned and launched on reference stardate 1/8912, having been authorized for construction on stardate 0965. (TOS reference: Star Fleet Technical Manual; ST roleplay module: Federation Ship Recognition Manual)

The TOS reference: Star Fleet Technical Manual gives the Lexington's registry number as NCC-1703, whilst TOS - The Yesterday Saga novel: Yesterday's Son gives it as NCC-1704.


USS Lexington service history

The Lexington completed two five-year missions (2248-2253 and 2253-2257), before Captain Mark Rousseau assumed command in 2258. Rousseau commanded the Lexington until 2264, when he retired from Starfleet, and allowed Commodore Robert Wesley to assume command. (TOS novel: The Better Man)

On reference stardate 2/0304, the Lexington was refit as a mk III Achernar-subclass starship. (ST roleplay module: Federation Ship Recognition Manual)

On reference stardate 2/0702, the Lexington was reported as being lost, her whereabouts unknown. (ST roleplay module: Federation Ship Recognition Manual)

The FASA continuity indicates that this Lexington remained missing and eventually replaced with a new Enterprise-subclass Lexington with the same registry in the 2280s. However, the Lexington's appearance in subsequent episodes and media following this date could indicate that the Lexington was eventually recovered, possibly, explaining why she was undergoing repairs in TOS episode: "Court Martial".

In 2267, the Lexington was one of several starships undergoing repairs at Starbase 11. (TOS episode: "Court Martial"). A few months later, the Lexington rendezvous with the USS Enterprise, so that they can transport Ambassador Robert Fox to Eminiar VII. (SCE novel: Foundations)

In mid-2267, the Lexington was assigned a first contact mission with the natives of Alpha Xaridian V. Because of the possible language problems, the Enterprise's Lieutenant Nyota Uhura, is temporarily assigned aboard. The Lexington managed to establish communication with the Xaridians and assisted the Enterprise in stopping pirates from attack colonies in the Xaridian system. (TOS novel: The Disinherited)

In late 2267, the Lexington and the USS Excalibur came to the aid of the Enterprise, when she was left powerless after slingshotting through a star when attempting to escape Adrik Thorsen and his allies. (ST novel: Federation)

The Lexington in battle formation.

In 2268, the Lexington led war games against the Enterprise to assess the capabilities of the M-5 multitronic computer, along with the USS Excalibur, USS Hood, and the USS Potemkin. The war games became a real war when the M-5 went insane and started attacking the fleet with full weapons. The Enterprise crew was able to stop the computer, but not before the entire crew of the Excalibur was killed. Lexington herself was severely damaged, with 53 members of her crew dying in the attack. (TOS episode: "The Ultimate Computer")

Later that year, the Lexington escorted a damaged Enterprise back to the Wagner Outpost after she had suffered an attack by the Ravens. (TOS novel: Dreams of the Raven)

Sometime prior to 2269, Commodore Wesley retired from Starfleet and accepted the governorship of Mantilles colony. (TAS episode & novelization: One of Our Planets is Missing) By the later part of 2269, Wesley had returned to Starfleet, and was once again in command of the Lexington when that vessel responded to a distress call from the USS Lovell in the Delta Triangle region. (SCE eBook: Where Time Stands Still)

As of 2270, the Lexington was assigned to Sector 90.4 to defend the planet Gateway and the Guardian of Forever located on the planets surface. Shortly after, the Lexington, with assistance from Captain Kirk and the Enterprise, fought off a Romulan attack on Gateway, led by Commander Tal. (TOS - The Yesterday Saga novel: Yesterday's Son)

In 2285, the Lexington was a part of the Federation fleet led by the USS Christopher Pike to stop an invasion from the Mirror Universe, but greeted the USS Excelsior instead. The Lexington escorted the Excelsior to Spacedock. (TOS - The Mirror Universe Saga comic: "Homecoming")

Sometime during the Lexington's service life, she was commanded by Captain William C. Perinal. During his command, the Lexington discovered the homeworld of the mysterious race known as "the Preservers". (TOS comic: "Who's Who in Star Trek")

Tyler Garth served aboard the Lexington at some point in his career. (TOS video game: Judgment Rites)
