The USS Kyle Brennan was an Excelsior-class starship in service to Starfleet from the late 23rd century to the early 25th century. She went through several refits through her lifetime before being decommissioned due to the age of the spaceframe in 2409.

Service History

The Kyle Brennan was named for Rear Admiral Kyle Brennan, an Earth Starfleet flag officer who was killed in the Earth-Romulan War. She entered service in 2291 and Captain Thaventh Jhehl was assigned to command.

The Brennan went through three refits in the 24th century, culminating in receipt of the USS Lakota retrofits in 2373. Under Captain Javier Velasquez the Brennan took part in several sorties during the Dominion War.

25th century

In 2405, the Brennan, now over a century old, was beginning to show her age and was scheduled for decommissioning. Due to rising hostilities with the Klingon Empire, however, Starfleet Command ordered the deferment of the venerable ship's removal from service and offered her to Commander Bronok Zell, a tactics instructor at Starfleet Academy, as his first command. After consulting his wife Atani Zell, the Cardassian accepted, and took command in late January. The next month the Brennan was deployed to the front lines as part of Starfleet's counterattack against the Klingon invasion of the Hromi Cluster. Looking back in 2409, Zell would fondly describe the Brennan as follows: "Bit of a junk heap compared to the Odyssey-class but could she ever take a hit!"

In 2408 Bronok Zell accepted a transfer to command of the USS Marduk, and the Brennan was given to Commander Ngongwe Wasotho and assigned to rear echelon duty in the Sol system. She was severely damaged when the Klingon Defense Force raided the Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards in 2409. The post-battle damage assessment determined that the aged superstructure had been too badly damaged to be worth the expenditure of repairs, and the Brennan was recommended to be decommissioned. She was struck from the list on March 9 Earth Standard.
