Service History

2371

During her shakedown cruise the crew uncovered evidence of a Tal Shiar spy network operating from a moon of Balin IV. ("Shakedown Cruise")


During the vessel's second shakedown cruise she was scheduled to run silent and avoid detection by the scoutcraft Talon while hiding in an asteroid field.  Unfortunately the Maquis attempted to hijack the vessel, resulting in the death of Michael Garrett and incarceration of Andrea Cazzarros.  ("Party-Crashers")

Seff O'Rourke and Nikolas Stone came abaord as replacements.  ("Pall Bearers")

After her launch from the New London Fleet Yards, the Lionheart was slated to be assigned to the First Fleet, along the Neutral Zone.  However, her first mission was routine maintenace on the sensor buoys in the Tarrella System.  ("Homecoming")

While enroute to Starbase 39-Sierra, the Lionheart rendevoused with the USS Ticonderoga and took Fleet Admiral Edward Proudfoot Sr., Starfleet's top diplomat, also headed to the Starbase.  Shortly thereafter they responded to a distress signal from an Orion freighter.  ("Aiding & Abetting")

As things continued to escalate along the Neutral Zone the colony of Haler IV decided Starfleet wasn't doing enough to protect them and began building its own small fleet. The Federation Council feared another Maquis situation and sent the Lionheart in to discuss disarmament.  ("Minutemen")


2372

When Kiva left the ship to assume command of the USS Starquest at Starbase 234, taking Evans, Meadows and Corwin with him.  At the same time Graw Arkan returned home to Biios Prime to hibernate. 

Several new officers transferred aboard at the starbase, Lietuneant Junior Grade Tanyo Sortyn, Assistant Navigation Officer, David Mitchell, Assistant Chief Engeineer, Tal Wegg, Counselor and Surgeon, as well as Operations Senior Chief Petty Officer Thomas Reighchopps, to replace the retiring Kolp. 

As hostilities began with the Klingon Empire, the Lionheart was transferred to the Second Fleet.  ("New Blood")


2373

Later that year the Lionheart was part of the Federation-Klingon Alliance's assualt on the Toros III Shipyards, and carried a prototype manned warhead module.  The warhead was piloted by O'Rourke with Picard manning its tri-cobalt magazine, both were lost during the battle.  ("Declaration")


2374

The Lionheart was badly damaged during Operation Return, and along with many other vessels of the Sixth Fleet made orbit of Prophet's Landing.

After weeks of repairs, Gedna Tachion assumed command again.  ("Back In the Saddle")


2375

2376

In the eaftermath of the Dominion War, O'Rourke was still in the Lionheart's center seat.


Prior to 2385 she was suceeded by a Nova class medical cruiser.
