About

Obena-class • NCC-91502 • Starbase Bravo

The arching sky is calling
Spacemen back to their trade.
ALL HANDS! STAND BY! FREE FALLING!
And the lights below us fade.

Out ride the sons of Terra,
Far drives the thundering jet,
Up leaps a race of Earthmen,
Out, far, and onward yet.

– ‘The Green Hills of Earth,’ Robert Heinlein

The USS Endeavour (NCC-91502) is an Obena-class starship assigned to the Fourth Fleet under the command of Captain Matt Rourke. Commissioned in late-2399, Endeavour was attached to a diplomatic mission to the Neutral Zone to continue the work of her namesake, a Manticore-class decommissioned after a terrorist attack by the Romulan Rebirth Movement. In the face of this opposition, Starfleet has recommitted to building bridges with the Romulan factions and bringing stability and support to a troubled region that has over fifteen years become a home to warlords and refugees alike.

As such, Endeavour is outfitted to conduct diplomatic operations that may require her to offer limited humanitarian support to a struggling frontier world, or defend against threats. Her support craft includes a flight of fighters for patrol and escort duties, and she has been equipped with an expansion of the Combat Information Centre that allowed her predecessor such strategic success. But first and foremost she is equipped to shelter those in need, welcome delegates of foreign powers, or host summits to discuss a world’s future and needs, so she may best bring the Federation’s torch of hope to a shrouded frontier.

Stars streaked beyond the ready room window as Endeavour hurtled through the dark. Deep in the engine room, Cortez stoked the engines hotter and hotter, the crew not for the first time locked in a race against time to save lives.

Sensor feeds scrawled over Airex’s HUD as he stomped through darkness. Three ships not far outside the facility. Twelve life-signs headed his way. Only the faintest of flickers suggesting Beckett was deeper in the Vaadwaur complex. And he’d left the control room to lie low, lest he be caught [...]

‘Radiation in the atmosphere is at a Level 4,’ Thawn reported from Ops. ‘Long-range scans were right; nobody wants to go go anywhere near this planet without significant protection.’ Rourke frowned at the brown-grey clouds of the upper atmosphere that were all the naked eye could see of [...]
