“We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.”
The USS Odyssey (NCC-80000), is an Odyssey-class Federation starship and was the prototype for the class. The Odyssey is a deep space explorer and is known for many of its exploits in the Alpha and Beta Quadrants. Commanded by Captain James Preston McCallister, the ship is one of Starfleet’s most advanced vessels operating in the fleet in 2399. The crew is one of the most diverse too, something that McCallister carried on from his previous command (Luna-Class USS Triton). A bulk of the crew are made up from the Triton and the previous ship named Odyssey. The ship was launched in 2387 with McCallister as its captain. The ship’s motto is based on the poem by T. S. Eliot named Little Gidding.
