The TCS Coventry was a Southampton-Class Destroyer that served with the Terran Confederation during the Terran-Kilrathi War. In 2669, it was a member of Destroyer Squadron 67 alongside the TCS Sheffield and the TCS Ajax. It was assigned as an escort to the TCS Victory.

In 2669, the Coventry was present at the destruction of Locanda, the successful incursion at Ariel, and was an escort to the TCS Behemoth during that ship's maiden voyage. The Coventry attempted to defend the Behemoth when it was attacked in the Loki System, but ultimately the Behemoth was destroyed and the Coventry itself was struck by a Kilrathi mine, although Bondarevsky recalled it as a missile strike in 2670. The Coventry survived the attack, but the bridge was breached, killing everyone except the squadron commander, Jason Bondarevsky, who lost his right arm due to the attack.

Despite the damage it sustained, the Coventry remained as the Victory's escort through the offensive at Freya and joined the Confederation fleet stationed there as Colonel Christopher Blair deployed the Y22A-1 Temblor Bomb against Kilrah, which finally ended the Terran-Kilrathi War.
