The namesake of her class, the USS Nova is a small exploration and science vessel built for planetary surveying and short-range missions. Lead by it’s sagely commander, the joined Trill Yanrel Vex, the Nova embarks on numerous missions to planets and systems of interest to the Federation. With it’s advanced science labs, atmospheric maneuverability and landing capability, and state-of-the-art atmospheric Waverider shuttle, the Nova serves as much as a flying research station as it does a Starfleet vessel, and the crew of the Nova are driven to fulfill Starfleet’s mandate of exploration, alien encounters, and scientific discovery.
