USS Polaris (NCC-80001)

While research and development activities typically occur on starbases and outposts within Federation territory, sometimes the greatest discoveries are made amongst the stars. This is the mission of the Polaris Squadron.


Odyssey-class • NCC-80001

Polaris Squadron, under the command of Fleet Admiral Allison Reyes, is a mission unit associated with Bravo Fleet Command that principally supports the work of the Advanced Science, Technology and Research Activity (ASTRA), a specialized, cross-functional unit intended to fuel Starfleet’s innovation engine through discovery, investigations and interactions on the frontier. Polaris Squadron also provides rapid response for critical non-traditional events, from biological threats to spacetime anomalies, where the experience of ASTRA’s scientists, engineers and analysts are particularly suited.

The USS Polaris is an Odyssey-class heavy explorer that serves as the flagship of Polaris Squadron and home of the Advanced Science, Technology and Research Activity. The Polaris is equipped with cutting edge laboratories, sensor suites, and analysis cores that give it near-parity with top-of-the-line R&D facilities, while having a degree of mobility such facilities do not have.  It is also well appointed for frontier diplomatic duties, but it has some tactical drawbacks due to its size and purpose that are augmented by Polaris Squadron’s other vessels.

The stories of Polaris Squadron are rated 2-2-2 for mature subject matter, including violence, language and sexual content.
