A Nebula-class heavy cruiser, the USS Cygnus has been in Starfleet service for more than three decades. Having recently completed an extensive refit that saw every system upgraded and updated, she’s now as cutting edge and up to date as when she was launched.
The Nebula-class has become a workhorse of Starfleet, capable of performing a wide range of mission profiles, partly thanks to her interchangeable mission pods. Scientific exploration, diplomacy, anti-piracy operations, humanitarian aid, disaster relief, defense are just some of the mission profiles that the Cygnus has taken on during the course of her service.
Recently assigned to the Fourth Fleet under Captain Bane Plase and Lieutenant Commander Erik Larsen, the Cygnus continues her service manned by a crew of the best and the brightest that Starfleet has to offer. Almost fifteen years after withdrawing from the galactic stage, the Federation is once more beginning to turn her gaze outward and re-engage with her neighbors. The Cygnus and her crew are ready for this challenge and are eager to return to the Federation’s roots of exploration and peaceful co-existence. Once more they will explore those strange new worlds, they will seek out new life and new civilizations and go boldly where no-one has gone before.

Alan blushed red, almost to the same hue as his uniform, then spoke. Next to [...]
Watching his officers go to their respective stations, minus Lisald and Anderson, who followed Spangler to Science Station 1, Bane himself stepped around the horseshoe and made his way to the Captain’s chair, but did not sit. He waited until Larsen made his way around, then spoke quietly to him. [...]
Lisald looked around, surprised at how many people were on the bridge. Even during red alert, there were not this many people aboard, and certainly not standing in the open area behind the command seats, behind Tactical and in front of Science Station 1, his old station. They were all standing [...]
