- See USS Armstrong for the vessel of the prime reality 24th century.
In 2258, the Armstrong was docked at Starbase 1 at the time Vulcan issued a distress call. Ignorant of the true nature of the distress call, the Armstrong joined with a fleet of other Starfleet ships on a mission of mercy for the Federation planet. Upon arriving at Vulcan, the Armstrong discovered itself in a trap conceived by the Romulan Nero, and was subsequently destroyed in the Battle of Vulcan, along with the rest of the fleet, by Nero's ship Narada.
