USS Hathaway

Class: Template:ShipClass
Registry: NCC-2593
Owner: United Federation of Planets
Operator: Starfleet
Status: Active (2368)

The USS Hathaway (NCC-2593) was a Federation Template:ShipClass star cruiser that was in service with Starfleet for over eighty years. This ship was launched in 2285 from the Copernicus Ship Yards on Luna, and was equipped with Avidyne impulse engines.

In preparation for Operation Lovely Angel in 2365, the Hathaway had been stripped down and was towed to the planet Braslota II in the Braslota system. While in orbit, the ship was temporarily reactivated for a Starfleet battle simulation, in which USS Enterprise-D first officer William T. Riker commanded the obsolete cruiser against the state-of-the-art Template:ShipClass starship. Although the Hathaway was running on minimum power, had only a few shards of dilithium, and no antimatter fuel, Riker's away team managed to reactivate the ship and place it in sufficient condition for simulated combat in only 48 hours.

Unfortunately, the battle simulation was interrupted by the intrusion of the Ferengi Marauder Kreechta, whose DaiMon believed he had stumbled into a Starfleet internal conflict. Thinking that the Hathaway must be of great value to be fighting against a modern starship (and not realizing the battle was simulated), the Ferengi demanded the Hathaway's surrender. The two Starfleet crews coordinated a ruse, however, in which it was made to appear as if the Enterprise destroyed the Hathaway to prevent it from falling into enemy hands. In reality, the Hathaway had merely made a split-second warp jump the instant before the photon torpedoes detonated. Its potential prize destroyed, the Ferengi retreated. Following the exercise, the Hathaway was towed to the nearest starbase. (TNG: "Peak Performance")

Three years later, the Hathaway was rushed into service to serve in Captain Jean-Luc Picard's fleet. The fleet was tasked with blockading the Romulans from delivering supplies to the Duras family at the Klingon-Romulan border during the Klingon Civil War. The starship was not one of the vessels selected for the tachyon detection grid. (TNG: "Redemption II")

The Constellation-class model labeled USS Hathaway was re-used to represent one of the ships in the task force sent to blockade the Klingon-Romulan border during the Klingon Civil War, in early 2368, in the episode "Redemption II". However, the Hathaway was not among the ships in the grid. Considering that there were at least twenty ships in the fleet (from the script), and there were seventeen ships in the grid, it was probable that the Hathaway and two other unnamed ships may have been assigned to other duties within the fleet.
According to the Star Trek Encyclopedia, the Hathaway may have been named for Anne Hathaway, William Shakespeare's wife.
The Hathaway appeared as one of four playable Constellation-class vessels in the video game Star Trek: Legacy.
