In the middle of the Dominion War, the Bataan was launched from San Francisco Shipyards and it headed straight into the Beta Quadrant to explore space not occupied by the Klingon and Romulan Empires. After five years, the Bataan returned back to Federation space, just as the USS Voyager-A was launched.
Up to 2389, the Bataan would join its sister ships USS Voyager and USS Bellerophon in dealing with the Tal Shiar, who have turned on the Romulan Star Empire, and started attacking them, the Federation, Klingons etc. The ship was involved mostly in battles against Tal Shiar scout vessels and lightly armed forces.
In 2390, after the Borg and the Tal Shiar collapsed, the Bataan docked at Deep Space 9, and received its orders to start exploring the Gamma Quadrant. The ship crossed the Bajoran wormhole three days later.
As of 2401, the ship was mentioned to be still exploring the Gamma Quadrant.
