Raven-class • NCC-88014 • Task Force 72

Life on the Nestus is rarely dull, home to the roving Theta Squad the small ship allows them to slip in and out of areas where a large ship of the line might cause too much fuss. To facilitate the small squad the vessel is heavily automated and refitted with a wide variety of upgrades, some more official than others. With only a half dozen crew members aboard Nestus has become something more akin to the civilian traders that roam the starways, personalisations & adaptations cover the ship. Small adjustments like an extra cushion on the helm’s chair or some less than regulation modifications to the impulse manifolds make Nestus a unpredictable element, just the way Theta Squad likes it. Home to a crew of those who didn’t quite fit into Starfleet’s mould Nestus is flying laboratory, sanctuary and precision instrument packed into a somewhat cramped box.
