Columbia's launch was pushed back from June to November 2154 when problems arose with the engines, leaving the ship unable to assist the Enterprise NX-01 during an incident with a Romulan drone ship.[3] Not long thereafter, Commander Charles "Trip" Tucker III transferred as chief engineer from the Enterprise to Columbia, quickly solving many of the problems plaguing the ship's engines. Shortly after being launched, the Columbia was called upon to assist the Enterprise, which had been sabotaged by Klingons.[4] After solving the problems with the Enterprise, the Columbia then assisted her sister ship in recovering Dr. Phlox from the Klingon colony on Qu'Vat, and engaged several Klingon warships in combat.[5]

In late 2154, a site was finally chosen for the location of Starbase 1. Within a month, Tellarite and Andorian ships joined the Columbia in bringing the first construction team to the planet; this group of technicians and engineers informally dubbed themselves the "Starfleet Corps of Engineers."[6]

In November 2155, a fleet of five Romulan warbirds under the command of Admiral Mindar approached the Berengaria system. The Columbia, the Discovery, under the command of Captain Curtis, and the Excalibur, under the command of Captain Bran Stiles, immediately saw that they were hopelessly outmatched. The Romulans were jamming all communications out of the system, so Hernandez ordered Stiles to retreat and warn Starfleet Command. Two Romulan ships broke off to pursue the Excalibur, while Columbia and Discovery fought the remaining three. Columbia and Discovery were destroyed in the engagement, having bought time for as many of the base personnel to escape as possible.[6]
