- Different continuities have the Oberth-class — first used in aired Trek for the Tsiolkovsky in TNG: "The Naked Now" — as the class of Grissom.
Commanded by Captain J.T. Esteban on what would be its last mission, Grissom was tasked with surveying the Mutara sector and the Genesis Planet. David Marcus and Lieutenant Saavik beamed down to the planet after ship's sensors indicated lifesigns within the torpedo casing that had been used as Spock's coffin. A Klingon bird-of-prey, commanded by Kruge, destroyed Grissom and all aboard.
Orion Press continuityEdit
Star Trek: Grissom continuityEdit
The Grissom launched in 2270 from the Copernicus Fleet Yards and had an illustrious history as of 2282. Then-Commander Spock was intended to be her commanding officer at some point. (Star Trek: Grissom: "One Small Step")
Over the Christmas/New Year period of 2282 and 2283, the Grissom ferried Ambassador Robert Fox to Elas for a "courtesy call" before rotating some crew. The USS Enterprise had been predisposed and unable to take Fox to Elas, so the Grissom was assigned instead. (Star Trek: Grissom: "One Small Step")
Some crew members, including Paul Hewson, felt uneasy about the Grissom straying from science-based missions, especially so close to the Klingon Empire, as the Grissom was built "for the study of astronomical phenomenon and data gathering on stars and planets". (Star Trek: Grissom: "One Small Step")
The crew of the USS Grissom included:
- Captain J.T. Esteban (commanding officer)
- Lieutenant Commander Christopher Chattman (communications officer)
- Lieutenant Saavik
- Lieutenant Junior Grade Rebecca Sato (helm officer)
- Petty Officer First Class Bacari Jata (navigator)
- Doctor Carol Marcus
- Dr David Marcus
