A decommission is the term used for the removal of a ship from the service of her governing body. This event usually involves a decommissioning ceremony.

Once decommissioned, a ship remains in mothballs, either awaiting dismantle or a recommission into service.

The decommissioning ceremony can be a somber occasion. It has little of the elaborate ceremony of ship commissioning, but carries significant tradition. Decommissioning ceremonies vary from fleet to fleet.

There has been no significant information about Starfleet decommissioning ceremonies in canon. At this time, neither canon nor fanon has featured a starship decommissioning, though ships have been decommissioned during many various story arcs.
