Notes - circa 2400, text - circa 2286:

           The Wilkerson Class destroyers, which first entered service on Stardate 7560.5, have since become a favorite among the personnel of Star Fleet's Destroyer Command. These sleek ships are not only fast and maneuverable, but also well-armed and shielded. Spacious crew quarters and work areas make tours of duty aboard a Wilkerson much sought after.
           The Wilkersons were tested for combat readiness shortly after they began arriving at their duty stations. Six of them participated in Solar Wind IV, a fleet-Ievel training operation designed to test the fleet's ability to respond to and repulse an invasion by limited Romulan forces. The after-action reports showed the Wilkerson to be a formidable opponent. During this operation, the Wilkersons were in combat four times and suffered no losses. The only pertinent negative reports from the operation were due to an overzealous captain who was so flushed with victory during a successful engagement that he pursued the fleeing enemy ships and left his support behind. Luckily, he broke off the action after realizing that he was the only ship in pursuit of the five enemy ships.
           During a docking operation on Stardate 7899.2, the USS Carmichael was pulled into the USS Henley. Both Wilkersons were destroyed, along with the docking facility and 730 personnel. Post-accident investigations revealed that a faulty tractor beam guidance control aboard the docking facility pulled the Carmichael into the Henley.
           Of the 132 Wilkersons built, 128 remain in active service, 2 are used by Star Fleet Training Command, and 2 have been destroyed. The Wilkerson Class destroyers are produced at the Sol IV and Salazaar shipyards at a combined rate of 26 per year. Star Fleet has contracted for the construction of 340 of these destroyers.
