USS Buran

Class: Challenger-class
Registry: NCC-57580
Owner: United Federation of Planets
Operator: Starfleet
Status: Destroyed (2367)

The USS Buran (NCC-57580) was a 24th century Challenger-class Federation Starfleet starship.

In 2367, the Buran fought the Borg at the Battle of Wolf 359. It was destroyed, along with 38 other starships. (TNG: "The Best of Both Worlds, Part II")

The wreck was later among the vessels found at the Surplus Depot Z15 located in orbit of Qualor II. (TNG: "Unification I")

The name of this ship was derived from Ed Miarecki, the creator of the design study and filming model of the Buran. [1]
Its class and registry was derived from production sources and revealed in the Star Trek Encyclopedia. According to the Encyclopedia, "the Buran was a "kit bashed" study model barely glimpsed among the wreckage of the "graveyard" scene in the episode. The ship was named for the Russian space shuttle, which was in turn named for the Russian word for "snowstorm"." (citation needededit)
