Circa stardate 8130.4 in 2285, while under the command of Captain Clark Terrell, the Reliant was assigned to scan the surface of Ceti Alpha VI as a possible test site for the Genesis Project. While on the surface investigating a possible life sign (which would have eliminated the planet as a test site), Captain Terrell and First Officer Pavel Chekov were captured by the genetically-enhanced 20th-century tyrant Khan Noonien Singh, exiled by then-Captain James Kirk on Ceti Alpha V fifteen years before.

The Enterprise would not have survived had Captain Spock not sacrificed himself to save the ship, which warped out just in time. The Genesis Wave destroyed the Reliant, and formed a new habitable solar system out of the matter in the nebula. Shortly thereafter, the Enterprise, after having buried Spock on the new planet, went to retrieve the Reliant's crew marooned on Ceti Alpha V. The name Spock can refer to: Mr. ...

During the mid-2280s, the Reliant was commanded by Captain Clark Terrell.
In an ambush, the Reliant caused severe damage to the engineering section of the Enterprise, but Khan was unable to revel in his victory because the Reliant itself fell victim to a counter-ambush from the Enterprise.
