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.

October 2399 Twenty Seconds After the Accident The only reason Kharth didn’t hit the deck was because she caught herself on the bar. The world still spun away wildly, dragging her senses with it, her grasp of up and down, sound and sight and sense. By the time they were back, she’d braced [...]

For all their vigilance and preparation, the cold still slipped through gear and gritted teeth and found skin and bone.

It was no small relief to feel the hum of Endeavour’s deck beneath her feet again. They’d been underway for ten hours now, departing Bravo that morning for the remnants of the Neutral Zone, and despite the station’s many comforts, space, and changes of scenery, Valance was glad. Endeavour was [...]
