USS Chimera is a Prometheus Class vessel which, due to the profound impact of the Dominion War, was under construction prior to the launch of the prototype Prometheus Class, the USS Prometheus. Upon completion in mid-2375, the Chimera was dispatched to immediate action at Riktor Prime. Following that engagement, she served in Sector 001 after the Dominion attack on Starfleet. Late 2375, Chimera took part in the Battle of Cardassia, which saw the end of the Dominion War. During the Battle, while Chimera was operating in Multi-vector mode, Fleet Captain Chernyenkov ordered a tripartite strike on an approaching starship which proved, after the successful destruction of the vessel, to have been the USS Meridien, which had broken the enemy line from behind but lost all coms in the process.

The friendly fire incident was judged faultless. Flak and massive sensor interference were the true culprits. Nonetheless, one year to the day after the Treaty of Bajor was signed, Captain Chernyenkov was found in her ready room, dead of a self-inflicted phaser blast.

Command of Chimera was passed on to Solan, a Vulcan in Starfleet service for over sixty years prior to his posting on Chimera. The ship and crew returned to peacetime standing, continuing the Starfleet Mandate of exploration and research. In mid-2384, Chimera received new orders, undertaking a mission for the Federation Archeology Council. In December 2384, command of the Chimera was temporarily assigned to Commander Rev S’Van of Starfleet Intelligence.
