The USS Hathaway (NCC-2593) was a Constellation-class exploration cruiser on active Starfleet duty in the 23rd and 24th centuries. Though its keel had been laid down as early as 2276 (TOS novel: Honor Blade), it wasn't launched until 2285 from Luna's Copernicus Ship Yards.
In 2288, the Hathaway rescued victims of the T'crala disaster. (Ship Recognition Manual, Volume 4: Starships of the Original Series Era)
Hathaway was originally assigned to the Seventh Fleet until at least the 2290s. Sal Johnson, son of Commodore Barry Johnson, was a Hathaway officer in the early 2290s. (Star Trek: Avenger: "Aftermath")
The Hathaway was decommissioned and abandoned in the Braslota system by 2364, when it was reactivated for war games with the USS Enterprise-D, and later played a role in the Klingon Civil War. (TNG: "Peak Performance", "Redemption, Part II")
