The USS Ahwahnee (NCC-71620) was a Federation Cheyenne-class starship that was in service with Starfleet in the late 24th century. The Ahwahnee, along with 38 other starships, fought the Borg at the Battle of Wolf 359 on stardate 44002. The ship was discovered adrift and decimated by the USS Enterprise-D following the battle.
After being salvaged, in early 2368, the Ahwahnee joined Captain Picard's fleet that blockaded the Klingon-Romulan border during the Klingon Civil War. It was positioned near the lower rear of the tachyon detection grid.
