USS Horizon

Task Force 72

USS Horizon banner

The USS Horizon is a newly commissioned Excelsior II-class heavy cruiser, built as a modern replacement for the long-serving Excelsior-class cruiser. Designed with many well-tested technologies, the Horizon and all of its sister ships were intended to replace the Excelsior as Starfleet’s standard ship-of-the-line, handling routine duties and patrols alongside the Reliant-class light cruiser that it complements. Under the command of Captain Treylana Hess, she is tasked with diplomatic and peacekeeping missions in areas such as the Alpha and Delta quadrants as a part of the Fourth Fleet’s Task Force 72.
