USS Ulysses (NCC-78242)

"She may be old, and she may have her quirks, but she's a ship of legend. And I want you to take her out into the galaxy one last time..."

About

Galaxy-class • NCC-78242 • Task Force 47

A symbol of elegance from an age of peaceful exploration and scientific endeavour, a presence never to be scoffed at or underestimated, and a vessel of legend. Wherever she goes, stories are sure to follow. Her kin have made first contact with hundreds, if not thousands of species. Treaties have been forged between implacable enemies on her decks. Whilst age now limits her to less than forty sisters travelling the stars, their space frame no longer under construction and the final of their scheduled refits having been concluded, she remains a posting of prestige, of desire. Captains and crew members alike plead for a chance to walk her hallowed halls and to sit at the heart of her bridge.

 

She glide through the heavens with the poise of a princess, a symbol of all that is good in the universe, flying the flag of peace, as the sister of the former flagship of the fleet. Klingon warriors sing songs in her honor; Cardassian cruisers flee at the very mention of her name; Dominion attack ships had to pay the ultimate sacrifice to eliminate her brethren; and even the very best ships the Romulans could once call upon were no match for her prowess.

 

A sight these days rarer than a Ferengi donating latinum to the Bajoran war orphans fund. A sight to behold. A guardian of the galaxy, an angel of mercy.

 

A Galaxy-class starship in all of her glory, the USS Ulysses serves the newly established Task Force 47 of the Fourth Fleet, operating out of Deep Space 47 at the gateway to the Thomar Expanse. Despite her age, recent tactical advancements mean Ulysses is more than suited for a return to Starfleet’s mandate of peaceful, scientific exploration. What she will find in the wasteland beyond the gateway to the expanse will test the crew to their limits…
