ABOUT THE USS ESSEX STARSHIPS

This section is about the primary ships used in the campaign.

 

U.S.S. ESSEX
NCC 173
DAEDALUS MK I
COMMISSIONED 2161.08

Third in the class of Daedalus class starships, the USS Essex served under the command of Captain Bryce Shumar for six years. Accompanied by the USS Archon and the USS Horizon, the Daedalus class starships helped establish the legacy of starship exploration in the early days of the Federation. On stardate 2167.09, the Essex was caught in a electromagnetic storm near the Mab-Bu system and was reported lost with all hands.

 

 

 

U.S.S. ESSEX
NCC 1719
CONSTITUTION MK II
COMMISSIONED 2204.01

Sixth of the MK II Constitution class heavy cruisers, the Essex was constructed to maintain the balance of power along the Klingon Neutral Zone after the Four Years War. Mounting the latest in phaser technology and stronger, more efficient shield generators than its MK I predecessors, the Constitution MK II's are the most advanced ships in known space.The USS Essex was christened from the Sol IV shipyards on stardate 2204.01, under the command of Commodore Istvan Kolsac, a seasoned veteran of the Four Years War. The Essex was sent out to patrol the Klingon border and was present at the Organian standoff on stardate 2208.01 Not long after this, Kolsac suffered an unfortunate and untimely death during a geologic survey expedition on stardate 2208.30. The command was passed on to Capt. Boberroneus T.Curp on stardate 2209.02, who currently holds command. The Essex now patrols near the Organian Peace Treaty Zone.

 

 

 

Continuity Note:

According to the Star Trek Encyclopedia II, the Constitution class USS Essex is listed as having the hull number NCC-1697, and in The Ships of the Starfleet, it has the hull number NCC-1727 . Granted that both references can arguably be the official Star Trek lore, I'm using the FASA record for this particular campaign, specifically The Federation Ship Recognition Manual.

Xon Pages Prologue by Joe UFC465537:

In February 2013, I was surprised by the news that the Xon Gaming site had vanished from the internet. Soon after, I had contacted Mark, the site owner, to learn what had happened and discovered that the site host he was using had gone belly-up. As a FASA Trek fan, that was quite a blow to myself and to the community. The Xon site was hands down the most extensive FASA resource on the internet and couldn't be allowed to disappear. After consulting Mark and other FASA site owners, he permitted us to host various pages of his site so it can maintain its internet presence. I was happy to be included in hosting these pages! The articles from the site are basically unchanged. Some links have been removed per Mark's request. Links to missing pages hosted elsewhere will be added once they've been posted and updated. Mark has decided to take some time off and go into "semi-retirement", as he put it, and move on to do other projects. I hope he returns, as selfish as it sounds, because I don't think the FASA Trek community will ever have a better historian and archivist.
