USS Fearless

Excelsior II-class • NCC-42598 • Task Force 17

History

The USS Fearless was one of the original Excelsior Class starships commissioned in the late 23rd century.  Considered to be the workhorse and backbone of the Federation fleet for over a century, the Fearless and several Excelsior class vessels remained in active service beyond expectation. The strong legacy of the Excelsior Class Starship lead to a secondary variant design and several refits before a final review resulted in the Excelsior II Class specifications.  In order to maintain the legacy of the remaining vessels still in service, all Excelsior Class vessels were overhauled and refit to Excelsior II standards; Fearless the last to be recommissioned.

In keeping with the original purpose, the modernized Fearless continues to serve a variety of mission profiles ranging from deep space exploration, sector patrol, courier assignments, and general transportation.  It is in this same spirit that the USS Fearless continues to stand resolute amid conflict in the modern galactic theater.

Kosinski Warp Drive

The Fearless received the Kosinski experimental upgrade to the warp drive engines.  It was recorded that engineering staff documented a “measurable increase in performance and engine efficiency” upon upgrade completion.  However, later research downplayed the findings suggesting the enhanced performance observed by the crew were due to “straightening out simple engine inefficiencies” associated with age of the vessel.  Prior to these disappointment findings, the Fearless transferred Kosinski, and his assistant to the USS Enterprise-D where they would oversee similar upgrades on the Federation Flag Ship.

Lost in the Knight Sky

In the year 2370, under the command of Captain Ameliye Simon, Fearless was directed to the planet Patnira.  While on the planet, Captain Simon and a number of crew were grotesquely mutated by an unknown Patniran weapon.  The mission logs, recorded by First Officer Shabalala, indicated “she begged me to kill her”.  With limited medical interventions available and crew and ship at risk, Shabalala obliged his captain’s request.  The Fearless was thought to have been lost, however, the skeleton crew remaining under the leadership of Captain Shabalala were able to make contact with Starfleet.  The vessel was deemed appropriate for salvage and repair and was given a second chance in Federation service.
