The USS Pegasus is a Galaxy-class starship assigned to the Fourth Fleet under the command of Captain Jessica Matthews. Commissioned in 2373 during the early stages of the Dominion War, the Pegasus spent its first years of active service in combat. Once the war ended, it received a full refit to include extensive scientific and medical facilities, along with the class’s standard diplomatic suites and amenities. Throughout its years of service, the Pegasus has served with distinction by hosting first contacts, making breakthroughs in scientific research, and providing humanitarian aid to those in need.
The Pegasus currently operates along the frontier as one of the Federation’s most capable all-purpose explorers. It is configured with a heavy focus in scientific research and medical care, pushing the boundaries of known space and providing advanced medical care to worlds beyond the reach of starbase facilities. With a crew of 1,000 Starfleet and civilian personnel, the Pegasus represents the best that the Federation has to offer and proudly upholds Starfleet’s legacy of peaceful exploration.
