Background: One of several ships dispatched to locate and retrieve Omega Squad after their escape from Starfleet. They and the starship Bolivar cornered Omega Squad’s runabout. Captain Stuart demanded their surrender and they could explain themselves on a return trip to Earth. Both starships came under attack by a Romulan warship and took heavy damage. The Romulans departed after Omega Squad’s runabout inflicted some damage to them (and the Romulans were sure that their asset was safe). Captain Stuart let them go trusting her instinct that there was more going on, officially blaming their crippled warp drive. Later that year they were assigned by Admiral Brand to keep a discreet eye on Cadets Nog and Yoshi as they inquired into the supposed death of the rest of Omega Squad. They followed the cadets to the Romulan Neutral Zone and waited for them there. Soon after they spotted one Romulan ship firing on another, into Federation Space. After the pursuing vessel refused to acknowledge their hail they opened fire on them, forcing the Romulan ship to withdraw. Aboard the fleeing ship were Romulan dissidents (of Spock’s Unification Movement) and Omega Squad. Most of Omega Squad was dropped off at DS9 while T’Priell/Selke and Astrun were delivered to Vulcan to help with the former’s identity issues carrying T’Priell’s Katra for so long.
Appeared in Star Trek:Starfleet Academy #12, 16-17
Background: One of several Starfleet vessel in the Enterprise-led Federation/Klingon Task Force. The Task Force was sent to the Gamma Quadrant to capitalize on a recent victory against a combined Jem’Hadar/Cardassian Fleet against DS9. Pathfinder was destroyed in an engagement with Jem’Hadar warships and Dominion-controlled Romulan Warbirds.
[It annoys me how the intrepid-class ships were supposed to be for long-term exploration, but Voyager was presented as a mini-Enterprise. If it was supposed to be for long-term exploration, then why didn’t it have technology suited for being alone, far away from Federation help? They had to give the ship a kitchen, airponics bay, and astrometrics lab, when it should have had these things to begin with. Shouldn’t it have had special technology designed to help with energy or fuel shortages? Shouldn’t it have been well-suited to being stuck in the delta quadrant? I love Voyager, but I wish it had been distinctly different from the Enterprise]
i can’t believe people say kathryn janeway is a poorly developed character. this character with so much depth and so many layers. this character who successfully integrated two crews with widely different views, protocols, and command structures. this character who is responsible for the lives of so many people. this character who will do anything she can, including put herself in danger, to get them home safely. this character who was thrust into a terrible situation and is forced to make tough decisions every single day. this character who is prone to reckless behavior and bouts of depression, and perseveres for the sake of her crew and her family. this character who is so reflective and philosophical. this character who cares so deeply about the people in her life. this character who is seemingly shocked every time she receives a hug, yet never refuses one. this character who begins the series as the young captain of a brand new intrepid class starship on a three week mission, and ends the series as a seasoned and experienced captain who has seen so many hardships and despite every obstacle thrown her way, got her crew home safely, and in a fraction of the expected time. this beautiful character. “poorly developed” i’m
Star trek spans over 6 shows (one is animated) and 12 (soon to be 13) movies. The plots of the shows vary from exploration to wartime peace keeping.
The Original Series (TOS)
TOS is the first Star Trek show made. It takes place in the 23rd century. The major plot of TOS was “to go where no man has gone before” (exploring a small part of our galaxy) The cast was very diverse for the time period (60s) in which it was made (the crew had African-Americans, Russians, Japanese, a half Vulcan, and many other ethnicities).
The ship of TOS was the Constitution Class Enterprise (NCC-1701)
The Animated Series (TAS)
The continuing mission of the USS Enterprise. Basically everything is the same as TOS but its animated. Most people skip this series and refuse to admit its real.
TAS had the same ship as TOS.
The Next Generation (TNG)
TNG takes place 70 years after Kirk’s final mission on the Enterprise in the year 2364 (24th century). By this time the space travel has been expanded and ships can travel faster and farther than in Kirk’s time. The crew of the Enterprise-D (there have been 3 ships called Enterprise between TOS and TNG) is also very diverse. The ship’s counselor is a empath, there is an android that seeks to become more human, the tactical officer is a Klingon and so on. The series begins with the crew of the Enterprise put on trial by a omnipotent being known as Q. Q thinks that humans are evil creatures so he puts them to the test to see if they can change their ways.
The ship of TNG is the Galaxy Class Enterprise (NCC-1701-D)
Deep Space Nine (DS9)
DS9 takes place during the end of TNG, It takes place on a space station called DS9. The captain was sent to command the station that is protecting a planet that recently got its independence from a race called the Cardassians. When the captain arrives he discovers a wormhole that leads to the other side of the Milky Way Galaxy. This wormhole brings visitors who start a war later in the show.
DS9 starts out without a ship in the first bit but later the space station gets the USS Defiant (NX-74205),
When the crew of Voyager is sent on a mission to capture a rebel group they and the rebel group are taken to the other side of the galaxy by a freak accident. In order to survivor without any supplies, reinforcements or communication the two crews must work as one. This takes place during the same time as DS9.
The ship of VOY is the Intrepid Class Voyager (NCC-74656).
The story of the formation of the United Federation of Planets. This takes place before TOS. Most races of Star Trek are given intros in this series. This is the last Star Trek show made (2001).
The ship of ENT is the NX Class Enterprise (NX-01). NX in Star Trek means experimental.
