U.S.S. Essex NCC-1719
The Federation Starship Essex, a Constitution class cruiser crewed entirely by Vulcans, was commissioned on Reference Stardate 2/0104 (April 2201), and refit to Mark III specifications on Reference Stardate 2/0209 (September 2202). On Reference Stardate 2/1105 (May 2211), the Essex, commanded by Captain Salar, discovered the Klingon D-7 class vessel I.K.S. Dun Da Spu ("Great Book Strike") in the 34 Kraol system, within the Triangle. A Klingon landing party was attempting to alter the cultural development of the race native to the third planet, and sought to tap the world's extensive durallium deposits.
The Essex was upgraded to Mark I of the Refit specifications on Reference Stardate 2/1803 (March 2218); Reference Stardate 2/2406 (June 2224) saw a further refit, this time to the Mark III specifications. On Reference Stardate 2/2909 (September 2229), the Essex was transferred to Starfleet Training Command. The Essex was scrapped on Reference Stardate 2/5001 (January 2250).
