USS Arcturus (NCC-84000)
The Arcturus has a crew of 2,500, among whom are a far larger number of senior officers than most other starships, including four officers holding the substantive rank of captain, serving as commanding officer, executive officer, captain of engineering, and captain of medicine. The ship is a flying starbase, carrying with it a fleet of runabouts and its own support vessel, the USS Hokule’a, an Aquarius-class light escort docked in a stern cradle. She supports a handful of smaller starships also assigned to Admiral Hayden’s long-distance exploratory mission, providing crew recreation opportunities as well as resupply.
