The SS Vondem Rose is a duly registered and certified armed merchant vessel of the United Federation of Planets, owned in part by no less then twelve shareholders. Major shareholders in the vessel are Sidda Sadovu & Gaeda Ruiz, both Federation citizens, as well as a third party that on papers is noted only as Revin.
The SS Vondem Rose serves as the mobile headquarters for Totally Legitimate Salvage Operators LLC, owned by the same shareholders as the vessel itself.
While the vessel bares a striking resemblance to a modern Klingon Defence Force Block 5 K’t’inga class cruiser, the Bureau of Ship Registration would like to remind all interested parties that the vessel is merely an armed merchant vessel. Distinguishing marks are the purple paint scheme and the stylised rose emblem on the ship’s hull.
The Vondem Rose was present in the recent Battle of Haydorien, where she played a small but critical role in defending a Starfleet minelayer as well as assisting in the post battle salvage operations, removing an abandoned Klingon bird of prey from being an obstacle in a major shipping lane. This vessel is now the priority courier vessel SS Martian Thorn and is a wholly owned asset of the above mentioned company.
