In that year, this starship received an order from Commodore Toki of Starfleet Advanced Technologies Division. According to this order, the Ticonderoga was to await instructions on the proper means of transmitting information on the testing of the Mark 25 warp sensor to this division. The starship was instructed to take all steps necessary to prevent the Ferengi agents, who were operating in the same sector, from learning about the Mark 25 Warp Sensor and its capabilities. This sensor had strategic value, and the mission the Ticonderoga was assigned was classified as most secret.
This starship was only mentioned in writing.
A ship with this name was to have been mentioned in the movie Star Trek: Insurrection. In a deleted scene, Quark was picked up at Deep Space 9 by the Ticonderoga for the Ba'ku planet, where the Ferengi spent his vacation.
The Ticonderoga had the highest NCC designation of the known canonical Federation starships.
