|Ship Name:||USS Sutherland|
USS Sutherland (NCC-72015) is a Nebula class Federation starship in service during the 24th century. It was built at the San Francisco Fleet Yards orbiting Earth and completed in 2367, on stardate 44820.5.
In early 2368, the Sutherland was docked at Starbase 234's spacedock for major repairs. It was prematurely deployed, despite the yard superintendent's belief the ship was not ready for launch, to serve as part of Captain Jean-Luc Picard's task force used to interdict the supply lines between the Romulan Star Empire and the House of Duras during the Klingon Civil War. For the duration of that mission, the Sutherland was temporarily commanded by Lieutenant Commander Data, with Lt. Cmdr. Christopher Hobson as his first officer. During the blockade, the Sutherland was hit by a massive tachyon pulse by the Romulans, which disabled the tachyon detection grid in a radius of 10 million kilometers around the ship. Data disobeyed Picard's orders to regroup at Gamma Eridon and instead was able modify the Sutherland sensors to detect a residual tachyon signature around the cloaked Romulan ships. He then exposed the ships using modified low-yield photon torpedoes. (TNG: "Redemption II")
During the mid-2370s, the Sutherland was assigned to the Ninth Fleet near Bajor, during the Dominion War, under the command of Captain Shelby. In mid-2374, it docked at Deep Space 9 to be resupplied along with the, the, and the. (DS9: "You Are Cordially Invited") The Sutherland was due to revisit Deep Space 9 a few months later.

In 2384, Ensign Derrick Hanes posted as a Flight controller. He would later be transferred in 2386 after an alturcation with his First officer whom he claimed cheated in a game of Handball. In late 2388, Captain Naru Tholia was placed in command of the Sutherland. In 2389, the Sutherland would assist the USS Constitution (NCC-59700) in the Battle of Archanis.
