USS Kyushu

Class: New Orleans-class
Registry: NCC-65491
Owner: United Federation of Planets
Operator: Starfleet
Status: Destroyed (2367)

The USS Kyushu (NCC-65491) was a Federation New Orleans-class frigate that was in service with Starfleet in the mid-24th century.

The Kyushu fought the Borg at the Battle of Wolf 359 in 2367, and was destroyed along with 38 other starships. It was among the ships identified in the wreckage by Commander Shelby. (TNG: "The Best of Both Worlds, Part II")

The name and registry come from the studio model. The class name, which appears in the Star Trek Encyclopedia, was provided by production sources.
In addition the Encyclopedia states, "the Kyushu was named for one of the four main islands of Japan, where a Japanese orbital launch facility was located."
The Kyushu was referenced in a line in DS9: "Emissary" that was later cut. The Kyushu was also mentioned in the video game Star Trek: Borg as the USS Righteous monitored the battle of Wolf 359.
