The '''USS ''Columbia''''' (NCC-85279) is a {{c|Nebula}} starship named in honor of the Earth space shuttle ''Columbia'', which was the first space shuttle launched into space and a pioneer in Earth's early space history. USS ''Columbia'' left drydock almost exactly four centuries after her ancestor entered Earth's orbit for the first time.

{{USS|Columbia}} was named in honor of the old earth space shuttle Columbia that was destroyed in a tragic accident in 2003. The first ship to enter outer space with the name Columbia was a pioneer in earth's early space history. It is no coincidence that Columbia left dry dock almost exactly 400 years after her ancestor entered earth's orbit for the first time.

The USS Columbia (NCC-85279) is a Nebula class starship named in honor of the Earth space shuttle Columbia, which was the first space shuttle launched into space and a pioneer in Earth's early space history. USS Columbia left drydock almost exactly four centuries after her ancestor entered Earth's orbit for the first time.

Nebula class USS Columbia

Commissioning of the new starship Columbia marked a change for Starfleet. With the Dominion War long over and peace talks with the Romulan Star Empire progressing, StarFleet shifted construction of its vessels away from wartime duty and toward its primary mission of exploration. The existing Nebula class design facilitated this change in mission.

Columbia eschewed the battle capabilities of some more recent vessels; she was instead well equipped with some of the latest breaking and largely untested Starfleet technology. What Columbia lacked in offensive firepower, she made up with technological advancement.

While she served through 2382 and part of 2383 as an exploration vessel, she was soon reassigned, with her crew, to StarBase 118 Operations. She was active as the field ship in that capacity, until 2384, when she was put into dry-dock for a review of her warp systems. Following the failed attempt at creating an artificial wormhole for incredibly fast interstellar travel, the Columbia was severely damaged. After limping back to StarBase 118, Captain Mal Avatar and his crew were transferred to StarBase 118.

Columbia's active service in support of StarBase 118 came to a violent end in 2390 when the ship was severely damaged during a mission. Extensive repairs were required, and Starfleet took the opportunity to refit the ship with upgraded systems and modules, including a new bridge module, expanded sensor capability, additional support craft, and other system upgrades.

On stardate 239107.14, Commander Ben Livingston took command of Columbia as it set out on a new mission of exploration. On stardate 239207.26, Commander Brek replaced him as CO, becoming the first Ferengi captain in Starfleet.
