The USS Centaur (NCC-42043) was a Federation Centaur-type starship operated by Starfleet. In 2374, the Centaur was under the command of Captain Charlie Reynolds. In that year, the Centaur mistakenly attacked a Jem'Hadar attack ship being commanded by Captain Benjamin Sisko for a covert mission. The Centaur pursued the attack ship into Dominion territory before being chased off by additional Jem'Hadar ships in the Deep Space Nine episode titled "A Time to Stand".
While posing as Kamar, a Cardassian "loyal" to the Founders, Elim Garak claimed to have been taken prisoner by the Centaur and held aboard one of their shuttlecrafts in the Deep Space Nine episode titled "Rocks and Shoals".
The Centaur was also part of the fleet that carried out Operation Return a few weeks later in the Deep Space Nine episode titled "Sacrifice of Angels".
The USS Centaur NCC-42043 is part of the Starships Collection of Star Trek vehicles by Eaglemoss. This incredible collection includes all the most significant ships from the five Star Trek television series. Imported from the U.K. with limited distribution in the U.S., these ships are not easy to find for sale in the United States.
The collection features a full range of Federation and alien vessels including seven incarnations of the Enterprise; all the major Klingon vessels including the Bird-of-Prey; Dominion; Borg; and Romulan ships and is slated to include about 80 ships in total.
