Assigned to deep space exploration beyond the outer rim of Federation controlled space in the Beta Quadrant, an area far from the peace of Earth and Sector 001. The USS Armstrong is a part of the 4th Fleet‘s Expeditionary Group.
Its three fold mission includes:
+ Charting the area of space beyond the confines of the known Beta Quadrant including scientific anomalies, first contact scenarios, and planetary discovery.
+ Securing Federation interests in an previously uncharted area of space.
+ Keeping the peace in an area where lawlessness and piracy once reigned supreme.
The USS Armstrong is named after an Earth Astronaut, Neil Armstrong, the first human to set foot on Earth’s moon – one of the critical events that eventually led Humans to explore the stars and help found the United Federation of Planets. Its crew, diverse in culture and experience, strives to live up to the ideals of those first men and woman who looked to the stars and were not afraid to seek out new life, new civilizations, and to boldly go where no one has been before.
