Alternate Reality
(split 2233)

For the 24th century prime reality vessel, please see USS Mayflower (24th century).

The USS Mayflower (NCC-1621) was a 23rd century Federation Mayflower-type starship operated by Starfleet in the alternate reality.

This starship was sent to Vulcan in 2258 to respond to a distress call from the planet. When it arrived, it was destroyed by the Romulan ship Narada in the Battle of Vulcan. When the USS Enterprise appeared at Vulcan, it skimmed over the wreckage of the Mayflower. The wreckage of the Mayflower posed a significant navigational hazard to the Enterprise as the latter ship maneuvered itself through the battlefield. (Star Trek)

The Mayflower was not mentioned in dialogue, and its name was only seen briefly on a piece of wreckage. A sketch of the Mayflower was part of the Star Trek special "Starships" and it was identified as resembling a Miranda-class ship in Star Trek - The Art of the Film.
According to the novelization of Star Trek, the Mayflower was sent by Starfleet to investigate a 'lightning storm' in the vicinity of Vulcan. This storm marked the approach of the Narada.
The 2013 virtual collectible card battle game Star Trek: Rivals had the Mayflower on card #89 "NCC-1621 USS Mayflower".
