Excelsior II-class • NCC-87003 • Task Force 47


Welcome aboard the USS Aquarius as it begins its adventures in the old Romulan Neutral Zone. Since the attack on Mars and the subsequent withdrawal from evacuations from the impending supernova, many Romulan refugees distrust Starfleet. The Aquarius will face challenges as they attempt to give humanitarian aid to these refugee worlds. Hopefully, over time with diplomacy and patience, they can begin to repair the damage.

The USS Aquarius (NCC-87003) is an Excelsior II-class heavy cruiser that was introduced in the late 2380s as a modern update to the long-serving Excelsior-class cruiser, which had just passed its tenth decade in continuous service. Unlike the similar-looking but much larger Obena-class explorer, the Excelsior II is designed to fill precisely the same niche held by the Excelsior: a medium-sized all-rounder. Working in tandem with her contemporary, the Reliant-class frigate, the Excelsior II is a solid, dependable cruiser that shores up patrol lines and handles generalist duties within and near Federation space. Under the command of Captain Vaelana, Aquarius is operating in the old Romulan Neutral Zone in the Beta Quadrant.

A Commanding Encounter - Vaelana/Q’orvha/McKnight

USS Aquarius: New Beginnings

The tour had been mostly uneventful so far, except for a small tense moment in a forward torpedo bay when an anti-grav lift momentarily failed and nearly dropped a Quantum Torpedo directly onto the deck-plating. The rest however, had gone as smooth as possible. This had allowed for Q’orvha to [...]

Analyze This!

USS Aquarius: New Beginnings

Lt. Dr. Rena Campbell was the newly-assigned counsellor on the USS Aquarius. Which was weird because she WAS an Aquarius.  Must be fate.  Not that Rena believed much in fate, but she certainly didn’t have other ideas. Anyway, it was time for the usual all-staff psych evals, as part of [...]

When Strategy Meets Tactics…

USS Aquarius: New Beginnings

Daniel looked around the transporter room as it slowly became visible during the transporter re-materialization process. Arriving in one piece after a short delay, he nodded to the transporter chief as he was welcomed to the station. Daniel stepped off the pad, repositioning the shoulder strap of [...]
