USS Repulse

Class: Excelsior-class
Registry: NCC-2544
Owner: United Federation of Planets
Operator: Starfleet
Status: Active (2374)

The USS Repulse (NCC-2544) was a 23rd century Federation Excelsior-class starship operated by Starfleet.

In 2364 and 65, Captain Taggert was the commanding officer of the Repulse. Medical officer Katherine Pulaski served aboard this vessel before she was transported by shuttlecraft D'Alison (Repulse shuttlecraft 10) to her new assignment, the USS Enterprise-D, in 2365. (TNG: "The Child")

Captain Taggert valued Pulaski as an officer, despite her idiosyncratic preference to shuttles instead of matter-energy transportation. Taggert told Captain Picard that there were no recent records of her using a transporter, since over a year previous. (TNG: "Unnatural Selection")

In 2367, the Repulse was on a deep space exploration mission in Sector 22036. The ship was named on the chart Starfleet Operations-Sectors 21166-23079 in the USS Enterprise-D bridge. (TNG: "Brothers" okudagram)

In 2369, the Repulse was on a deep space exploration mission in Sector 22358. The ship was named on the chart Starfleet Operations-Sectors 21538-23079 in the Enterprise-D observation lounge. (TNG: "Chain of Command, Part I", okudagram)

In 2374, the starship reported numerous casualties to Starfleet Command. The reporting ship's name and registry and its casuality list were named on the Personnel Status Update chart in the Deep Space 9 wardroom. (DS9: "In the Pale Moonlight", okudagram)

Background information Edit

The Repulse was a reuse of the USS Excelsior studio model first built for Star Trek III: The Search for Spock. The Repulse was later listed on the mission status chart seen on screens from TNG Season 4 onward. The casualty report seen on Deep Space Nine contains many double names of personnel being killed or wounded on multiple ships. It seems more likely that each officer died only once and that the reports were filed multiple times. In this case it was unclear which officers listed under Repulse actually served on this vessel.

The USS Repulse was the only established operational Excelsior-class vessel still sporting a four digit registry number in the 24th century, suggesting she was a close contemporary of the 23rd century original USS Excelsior and thus one of the oldest vessels of the class still in service. Originally, the Repulse was to be paired with the USS Hood, which had been given the registry number NCC-2541 in "Encounter at Farpoint". Apparently the original labeling was forgotten about or ignored later by the production staff and as she was endowed with a new, much higher registry number, leaving the Repulse the only four digit registered Excelsior-class vessel in the 24th century.

According to the Star Trek Encyclopedia (2nd ed., p. 407), the Repulse was "named for the British battle cruiser that fought in Earth's World War II."

Apocrypha Edit

USS Repulse was the name of a Miranda-class starship that appeared in the game Star Trek: Tactical Assault.

In FASA's Star Trek: The Role Playing Game, the Repulse was a Miranda-class starship with the registry number NCC-1863 (β).

The Excelsior-class Repulse, with Taggert and Katherine Pulaski back as CMO, fights the Borg in the novel Vendetta.
