Alternate Reality
(split 2233)

For the prime universe counterpart, please see USS Farragut (23rd century).

The USS Farragut was a 23rd century Federation starship operated by Starfleet.

In 2258, the Farragut was part of a Federation fleet sent to investigate Vulcan while it was being attacked by the Romulan mining vessel Narada. Nyota Uhura was assigned to the Farragut; however, she was able to convince Spock to have her transferred to the USS Enterprise, which would ultimately spare her life. Another cadet who was assigned to the Farragut was Gerace.

Upon arrival at Vulcan, the Farragut, along with the rest of the fleet, save for the Enterprise, was destroyed. (Star Trek)

The Farragut was briefly seen, however not specifically identified, when the shuttlecraft Gilliam flew over Starbase 1 to the Enterprise.
Screenwriter Roberto Orci opined that James T. Kirk served a semester on the Farragut, just as his prime reality counterpart did in the same timeframe. (Star Trek Magazine issue 171, p. 33)
The Star Trek: Starfleet Academy novel The Gemini Agent has Kirk briefly assigned to the Farragut as first officer and head of security during the Zeta Fleet Training Exercise.
