An Excelsior class vessel bore the name prior.
During Operation Return her saucer section took heavy damage and Gallagher was forced to separate it during the battle, sacrificing everyone aboard it to save the stardrive and keep the ship in the fight. Even though her actions saved the stardrive, it was still badly damaged and was towed into orbit of Prophet's Landing to await repairs.
While there Commodore Nikolas Stone used the ship's facilities to coordinate to serve as an orbital defense platform and shuttle port.
After returning from a Special Operations mission, Fleet Captain Gedna Tachion assumed command of the vessel he began restaffing the crew as repairs progressed. During the repairs, Stone officially made the Camelot his flagship and Gallagher was promoted to XO.
On stardate 51905.4 the Camelot led a task force consisting of the Grant, Musketeer, and Kligat to search for Dominion vessels in the Styx Rift in order to set the stage to take the Kalandra Sector back from the Dominion. ("Perdition's Flames")
The Camelot took part in the invasion of Cardassia.
As of 2379, the Camelot had yet to receive a new saucer section.
