The Pathfinder was launched alongside the USS Jefferson in 2374, shortly before Operation Return.
During the Second Battle of Chin'toka in 2375, the Breen fired their energy dampening weapon at the Pathfinder, draining its energy. It suffered numerous hull breaches and casualties. The stardrive section took a lot of beating, and the mess hall was blown sky high. In the end, the Pathfinder succumbed to a warp core breach, with 25 of the crew successfully abandoning the wreck of the ship.
