The USS Koru (NCC-59563) was a Nova-class starship. The Koru was commissioned on stardate 48992.3 (in 2371) at Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards, and Lieutenant Commander Elizabeth Singh served as first officer aboard this ship. In 2372, Tawana Killan joined the crew as flight controller. There were 82 people serving aboard the ship as of stardate 49537.0.
The Runabout Avon was assigned to the Koru.
In mid-2372, the Koru, responding to the Avon's distress call, was severely damaged by the Myhr'an, destroying the bridge and crippling the rest of the ship. Captain Guenther Staerke and others were killed, while chief engineer Angus Ladd survived. As the USS Avon carried the survivors to the safety of the USS Cantabrian, the Koru exploded.
