Columbus was the first submarine equipped with the BYG-1 Fire Control System in December 2002.  Two successful test launches of Tactical Tomahawk (Block IV) cruise missiles were conducted in late May 2003 from Columbus, while underway in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Southern California.  Columbus departed Pearl Harbor for another western Pacific deployment in late 2003,  and visited Jinhae-gu, South Korea, Singapore, and Japan while taking part in Annual-Ex 2003, an exercise with various units of the Japanese Maritime Self-Defense Force.  In mid-April 2006 seven Columbus crewmen were charged with a variety of offenses, including assault, dereliction of duty, and hazing, for alleged attacks on two of their shipmates. The accused range from a petty officer third class (E-4) to a senior chief (E-8).  A complete report on the situation was completed on 30 May. On 13 June, the Navy announced the dismissal of Columbus’s commanding officer, Commander Charles Marquez because of concerns about his “ability to establish and maintain appropriate standards of professional conduct, provide the crew a safe, positive, professional environment in which to work, and maintain good order and discipline”.  Captain Brian McIlvaine, former commanding officer of USS Ohio (SSGN-726), replaced Marquez temporarily. After a few months in command CAPT McIlvaine was replaced with CDR James Doody.

She departed in March 2008 for a regularly scheduled six-month deployment with the Seventh Fleet.

In January 2009 Columbus was awarded the Submarine Squadron Seven Battle Efficiency (Battle “E”) award, given to the submarine crew that best demonstrates technical proficiency and continual mission readiness throughout the previous year. In July 2009 Admiral Gary Roughead, the Chief of Naval Operations, announced that Columbus was the Pacific Fleet winner of the 2008 Arleigh Burke Fleet Trophy.  Columbus arrived in the South Korean southern port city of Busan on 3 March 2014 as a part of a scheduled deployment in the Western Pacific.
