Welcome to the USS Crown

The year is 2391. Starfleet continues with its goals of exploration, peaceful contact with new species, and maintaining the security of the Federation. To rise to these challenges Starfleet has commissioned a new class of multi-purpose starships known as the Insignia class.



The USS Crown is among the latest of these vessels. Her unique, modular design enables her to quickly adapt to changing requirements, depending on the needs of the service. On one mission she may be outfitted with advanced sensor and research packages to make her a science vessel. Then she could swap out those modules with new ones containing pre-packaged medical and humanitarian supplies for disaster relief on some far-away world. After that she may swap modules yet again to ready her for routine defense patrols, or to serve as an ambassador's ship, or to ferry colonists. The mission possibilities are nearly limitless.
