The USS Yeager (NCC-65674) was a 24th century Federation Yeager-type starship operated by Starfleet.

The Yeager served during the Dominion War, starting in 2373, where it was often stationed near Deep Space 9. (DS9: "Doctor Bashir, I Presume", etc.)


Background information

This ship was seen in background scenes in several episodes. For detailed information on this design and model, see Yeager-type model.

The origin of the name was a result of reusing the existing decals created for the USS Voyager, which were rearranged (and given an extra "E") to get USS Yeager. Likewise, the Voyager's registry, NCC-74656, was transposed into NCC-65674. The same procedure had been previously performed on the model of the USS Trial, which was made from a USS Reliant model kit, and the USS Constellation, which was made from a USS Enterprise model kit.

The Yeager was presumably named in honor of Chuck Yeager, the US test pilot who first broke the sound barrier.
