The USS Princeton (NCC-59804) was a Niagara-class Federation fast cruiser starship in Starfleet service in the 24th century, named for Princeton University's location in New Jersey, on Earth.

In 2367, the Princeton participated in the Battle of Wolf 359. It was destroyed, along with 38 other starships. When the USS Enterprise-D apprached the battle site shortly thereafter, the wreck of the Princeton was one of the first ships the Enterprise passed. (TNG episode: "The Best of Both Worlds, Part II"; Reference book: Star Trek Encyclopedia)


Images of this ship were first published in Star Trek Fact Files, subsequently the ship was clearly seen in the special features of the TNG season 3 DVD. Both Fact Files and the Encyclopedia incorrectly listed this vessel's registry as "NCC-58904" before being corrected by the DVD release.

The USS Princeton (NCC-59804) was an Niagara-class starship serving Starfleet in the mid-24th century.

In 2367, Princeton was part of a fleet of 40 starships massed at Wolf 359 in defense of Sector 001 during an incursion by a Borg cube. The Princeton was severely crippled by the Borg at the Battle of Wolf 359, suffering hull breaches, killing nearly everyone on the ship, including almost every cadet reassigned from Starfleet Academy to active duty by Starfleet Command except one. Lieutenant ch'Arus and Cadet Margot Delorit were among the survivors.

The USS Worsaae detected survivors in one pressurized section and sent an away team, led by Anne Cobry, to save the survivors. The away team managed to save everyone before a final hull breach depressurized the remaining area on the ship. (Star Trek: The Prospect Chronicles: "The Burnt Child")

The Princeton's captain, Jacqueline Dorsey, was memorialized in the form of a Nova-class starship commissioned in 2372. (Harry Potter and the Fountain of Possibilities)
