U.S.S. Yorktown (Constitution class)
|Class||Constitution class (Enterprise subclass)|
|Commissioned||RSD 2/1512 (Dec 2271)|
RSD 2/1512 (Dec 2215)
|Status||Rechristened Enterprise-A RSD 2/2312 (Dec 2286)|
Destroyed RSD 2/3808 (Aug 2238)
The Federation Starship Yorktown, a Constitution class vessel, was constructed to Mark III specifications and commissioned on Reference Stardate 2/1512 (December 2271), and on Reference Stardate 2/1712 (December 2273), the Yorktown was upgraded to Enterprise subclass Mark I specifications. Michael Pollard served aboard the Yorktown from Reference Stardate 2/15-2/18 (2271-2276). On Stardate 8390, the Yorktown was disabled in Sector 001 by an alien space probe approaching Earth. During the incident, Captain Joel Randolph reported that the ship's chief engineer had rigged a makeshift solar sail to provide emergency power for the crippled starship. With the ship needing major repair and overhaul in the wake of the interference with the ship's systems caused by the probe's signal, the crew was reassigned and the ship was refit to Enterprise Mark III specifications on Reference Stardate 2/2312 (December 2286). Following the refit, the Yorktown was redesignated the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-A.

- Although the FASA supplement "Federation Ship Recognition Manual" (1985) established that the Yorktown was commissioned on Reference Stardate 2/1712 (December 2273), the FASA supplement "Where Has All the Glory Gone?" (1985) also established that a crew member served aboard the ship beginning in 2/15 (2271). To resolve this conflict, the ship's launch date has been moved up to 2/1512 (December 2271) as a Mark III Constitution class ship, and refit to Refit Mark I on 2/1712.

- While the "Federation Ship Recognition Manual" (1985) established that the Yorktown was refit to Mark III specifications on 2/2312 (December 2286), the "Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home Sourcebook Update" (1986) established that the newly-rechristened Enterprise was launched on 2/2210.15 (15 October 2285). A hasty refit and renaming of the ship could explain Mr. Scott's difficulties seen in Star Trek V: The Final Frontier, so the refit date has been adjusted accordingly.

- There are several conflicting sources for which ship became the Enterprise-A. FASA game materials stated that the U.S.S. Atlantis NCC-1786 was rechristened prior to its commissioning, while Mr. Scott's Guide to the Enterprise stated that the ship was named the U.S.S. Ti-Ho NCC-1798, a testbed for experiments in creating a transwarp drive. The Star Trek: The Next Generation Technical Manual, however, stated that the ship in question was, in fact, the U.S.S. Yorktown, which was seen earlier in Star Trek IV. Given the stronger canonical links of the Technical Manual over the other book, and the priority of books over game materials in conflict resolution for this site, the conflict is resolved in favor of the Yorktown.
