The USS Saratoga (NCC-31911) was a Miranda-class medium cruiser starship in service to Starfleet in the 24th century. (ST roleplay module: Starfleet Operations Manual; ST reference: Star Trek Encyclopedia)


Service history

In 2358, the Saratoga was docked at Starbase 179. Station resident Robin Lefler was given a tour of the vessel at that time. (NF short story: "Lefler's Logs")

The Saratoga was sent to recover Dr. Rebecca Emmanuelli, who had been illegally held by the Tzenkethi for several years after the end of the Tzenkethi War. (ST novel: Articles of the Federation)

Prior to 2366, Lieutenant Commander Benjamin Sisko was the first officer of the Saratoga. During that time, the ship undertook missions to Guldammur IV, Mariphasa IV and Thetalian Prime. (DS9 novel: Saratoga)

At Guldammur IV, the Saratoga encountered a hostile Breen ship. In a plan devised by Benjamin Sisko and Hranok, a narrow-gauge phaser spread was fired from the weapons of the Saratoga, making several small gaps in the Breen's shields. This allowed the Saratoga crew to beam unwanted items into the Breen's weapon banks, clogging them and leaving them unable to fire. (DS9 novel: Saratoga)

On Mariphasa IV, Sisko, Hranok, Thorn and Laffer were captured by the Cardassians and were about to be tortured to reveal their mission there. They were saved by Doctor Laffer's arguments with the Cardassian in charge, which bought time for Thorn to disarm one of the Cardassians and make their escape. (DS9 novel: Saratoga)

On a mission to Thetalian Prime, Sisko, Hranok, Graal and Laffer were affected by alien organisms until Dr. Laffer was able to find a cure. Some of the organisms, which produced corlandium, remained in their systems. (DS9 novel: Saratoga)

In 2366, the Saratoga was part of the Federation fleet that engaged the Borg at Wolf 359. The Saratoga was among the first ships to arrive and engaged the Borg cube with the USS Gage, the USS Melbourne and the USS Kyushu. The Saratoga was destroyed at the battle, although several escape pods were able to leave the ship. (DS9 episode: "Emissary")

Sisko was sent back to the Saratoga during the battle on a mission by the Prophets and encounted several Borg drones who had boarded the ship. (DS9 video game: Crossroads of Time)


During his first encounter with the Prophets in the Bajoran wormhole, they showed Sisko the last moments of the Saratoga, making Sisko realise he had not moved on. He would later say the Prophets gave him his life back. (DS9 episode: "Emissary")

A model of the USS Saratoga rested in Sisko's office on Starbase Deep Space 9. (DS9 episodes: "Battle Lines", "In the Cards")

In 2372, Starfleet launched the USS Saratoga-A, which was named for its predecessor. The surviving crew were invited to attend, giving Commander Lopez his chance to turn them over to the Retizians for the priceless corlandium-producing organisms in their blood. (DS9 novel: Saratoga)

Jean-Luc Picard recalled the Saratoga just before the second Borg attack and the Battle of Sector 001. (Star Trek: First Contact movie: )

Sisko recalled the Saratoga and its crew after the end of the Battle of Cardassia and the Dominion War itself. (DS9 short story: "Requital")

USS Saratoga (NCC-31911) was a Miranda-class light cruiser active in Starfleet service from the late 23rd century to the mid-24th century.

The Saratoga was described as a Ticonderoga class fast patrol vessel in one fan source. (Kennedy Shipyards: Starfleet Vessel Miranda Class Starship USS Reliant NCC-1864: General Blueprints and Specifications) A 2006 revision of Jackill's Starfleet Reference Manual: Ships of the Fleet, vol. 1 designated it as the lead ship and prototype for the Saratoga-class of strategic frigates.

Lieutenant Commander Benjamin Sisko served as the vessel's first officer during the mid-2360s. (DS9: "Emissary")

In 2364, Saratoga rescued survivors of the destruction of USS Artemis. It was aboard Saratoga where Scott Fack first met Jason Athelstan, a crew member who he later had a relationship with. (Star Trek: The Prospect Chronicles: "Lady Lazarus"; Star Trek: The Cantabrian Expeditions: "Isolation", "An Innocent Time")

In 2367, Saratoga was part of a fleet of 40 starships massed at Wolf 359 in defense of Sector 001 during an incursion by a Borg cube. Saratoga was severely crippled by the Borg at the Battle of Wolf 359. Benjamin Sisko and his son survived as they ejected in lifepods, but many Starfleet officers and civilians did not. Saratoga was destroyed by a warp core breach. (DS9: "Emissary")

During the battle, the Saratoga reported the USS Melbourne was down. The USS Prospect's sensors detected several escape pods and survivors from the Saratoga during the rescue effort at Wolf 359, while the USS Worsaae recovered the lifepod Benjamin and Jake Sisko were in, with Jason Athelstan and Scott Fack assisting them once aboard. (Star Trek: The Prospect Chronicles: "The Burnt Child")

In the 2370s, another vessel of the same class would be named after her and given the registry NCC-31911-A. (DS9 novel: Saratoga)

By 2378, the Saratoga had been rebuilt and was part of the Starfleet Third Fleet, under the command of Admiral Christopher Truman. (Star Trek: Pioneer (STP))


Saratoga Officers, Crew and Civilians

Jason Athelstan was an engineer aboard the Saratoga in 2364. (Star Trek: The Prospect Chronicles: "Lady Lazarus"; Star Trek: The Cantabrian Expeditions: "Isolation", "An Innocent Time")

Kayl served aboard the Saratoga in this year. (Star Trek: Phoenix-X: "Remnants")

It is not specified what her rank and position was.

During the Battle of Wolf 359 in 2367, the following officers served aboard the Saratoga:

There was also a bridge officer named Garcia, whose rank and billet were unspecified. (DS9 novel: Emissary)
