During the Battle of Deep Space 9, the Cuxhaven engaged the USS Aotearoa after the latter ship started destroying escape pods from Deep Space 9. The Cuxhaven suffered major damage but inflicted a lot more on the Aotearoa.
After the ceremony, Radke went to Admiral John Greene and other Starfleet captains with the news the M'Tar could be behind the rise in Myhr'an violence. Starfleet assigned six ships to the task force, and Greene chose the Cuxhaven, as the seventh ship, to remain behind. Radke relinquished his command of the Cuxhaven to join the fleet aboard the USS Cantabrian. (Star Trek: Pendragon: Other Knights anthology: "Gravity")
