USS Fearless (NCC-14598)
The USS Fearless (NCC-14598), is an Excelsior-class heavy cruiser and one of the few remaining still in use. The Fearless is a versatile “workhorse,” capable of almost any mission within Federation space due to ample space which can be easily converted for mission specific objectives. Commanded by Captain Edmond Jermaine Langston, this iconic Excelsior class, refitted with the Federation’s modern technology, fearlessly continues to be an active presence in fleet operations, primarily in the role of support operations: customs inspection, patrol duties, ambassadorial and flag officer transport, and humanitarian aid; however, updates to weapons systems have allowed the class to retain its function as heavy cruiser allowing the Fearless to function independently for pirate interdiction and other tactical operations. The crew is predominantly composed of recent academy graduates and recently enlisted personnel in technical training. The senior staff, handpicked by Captain Langston for their knowledge, skill, and mentoring qualities, are seasoned professionals and experienced instructors; many of whom are adjunct instructors.
