This article is about the Prime Timeline starship. For its Kelvin Timeline counterpart, see U.S.S. Yorktown (Kelvin Timeline).
The U.S.S. Yorktown (NCC-1717) was a Constitution-class cruiser active in 2270.
In 2286, the Yorktown was under the command of Captain Joel Randolph. While deployed near the Sol system, the Yorktown was one of the many vessels disabled by the Whale Probe near Earth. In Randolph's distress call to Starfleet Command, he noted that the ship had lost all power and that all non-essential crew were given hiber-sedatives to slow down consumption of life support reserves. Meanwhile, the Chief Engineer attempted to deploy a makeshift solar sail so as to focus and absorb radiation from a nearby sun they were orbiting, with the hopes of generating power to keep the crew alive.
In 2293, Tuvok's father was a Starfleet officer serving aboard the Yorktown.
