In that year, prior to stardate 41775, Admiral Gregory Quinn of Starfleet Operational Support Services assigned the Nightwing to McKenzie Project. During its assignment, the starship rendezvoused and worked with another spacecraft toward a successful completion of the project.
In 2364, this ship received orders from Starfleet. At the end of that year, Data read these orders and several others to investigate claims of a conspiracy among the highest members of Starfleet Command. (TNG: "Conspiracy")
