|Motto:|| God, give us peace! Not such as lulls to sleep,|
But sword on thigh, and brow with purpose knit!
And let our Ship of State to harbor sweep,
Her ports all up, her battle-lanterns lit,
And her leashed thunders gathering for their leap! - James Russell Lowell
After her shakedown cruise in 2382, the Helena was assigned to Captain Tolian Naros's command by Admiral Ian Quincy Knapp. Captain Elizabeth Shelby oversaw her commissioning ceremony at Deep Space 12. (Star Trek: Hidden Frontier: "Her Battle Lanterns Lit")
Under Naros's command, the Helena played a pivotal role in the Battle of Tren'La, launching several Horta at the Tren'La tetrahedron. The Horta disabled the tetrahedron, causing the tide to be turned against Siroc. (Star Trek: Hidden Frontier: "Heavy Losses")
By 2384, Helena was commanded by Captain Theresa Faisal, who had been executive officer under Naros. Her first officer was Commander Jorian Dao. In 2386, Helena underwent refit and was equipped with a quantum slipstream drive. Under now-Captain Dao's command, Helena departed on a diplomatic and exploration mission to Archein space in the Andromeda galaxy.
