U.S.S. Hood NCC-1703 (FASA)
|Status||Scrapped RSD 2/1202|
The Federation Starship Hood, a Constitution class cruiser was authorized by the Star Fleet Appropriation of Stardate 0965 and commissioned on Reference Stardate 1/9307 (July 2193), and on Reference Stardate 2/0402 (February 2204) was refit to Mark III specifications. Montgomery Scott served aboard the Hood as Assistant Chief Engineer, following his promotion to Lieutenant. The Hood was commanded at that time by Captain Hojo Yorii, who awarded Scott for conspicuous gallantry during an engagement with a Kangor class Klingon battlecruiser on Stardate 1469.2 (11 August 2192). On Stardate 4729.4, the Hood participated in the disastrous tests of the M-5 multitronic computer.
On Stardate 7636.2 (Reference Stardate 2/1101, January 2211) the Hood, commanded by Captain Hugo Revere, was ordered to investigate an interphase rift between two rotating neutron stars near Tholian space, to determine its potential use as a weapon. By Stardate 7662.4 (Reference Stardate 2/1104, April 2211), the Hood had been pulled into interphase. The data the ship had collected was recovered by the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701, but the ship and crew were lost.
The Hood was recovered, however, on Reference Stardate 2/1201 (January 2212) by the U.S.S. Cre'cy NCC-4312. Shortly after returning to service, the Hood was escorting a group of merchantmen to Starbase 12 when the convoy was attacked by a Klingon D-7M K't'inga class cruiser. Afterward, the Hood was scrapped.

- Conflicting information was given in the FASA game materials regarding the fate of the Hood. The "Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home Sourcebook Update" established that the Cre'cy recovered the Hood after its reappearance from interphase, but noted that the ship was scrapped; the Constitution class listings in the Federation Ship Recognition Manual reflected this. However, "The Big Bad Wolf," an adventure in the Starship Tactical Combat Simulator, contradicted this with a pre-refit Hood engaging a K't'inga class ship at a later date. This conflict has been resolved as seen in the text above.
