Welcome to the USS Vanguard!

The USS Vanguard (NCC-79528) is a Sovereign-class starship commissioned in 2389 under the command of Jacob Dawkins. Named the Vanguard to inspire in the hearts of those she protects that the Federation is truly still standing at the forefront of all things. As such, she was deployed with the intention of deep space exploration and patrol in the most dangerous and hostile areas in the post-war Federation. After a two year shakedown, she was reassigned to the galactic south to join the 11th Fleet.

She was deployed to Romulan space to assist in humanitarian aid and rescue efforts as well as defense patrol for the wounded empire. Over the course of two years the crew became quite seasoned and the ships various new systems were tested and broken in. As the tensions along the borders in the south reached all-time highs. In 2393, the USS Vanguard was reassigned to the Northern Expanse where Task Force 56 was located. Under the Command of Commander Jhamal P'Trell.

History of the Northern Expanse

In the year 2392, the 11th Fleet decided that more task forces were needed with the increased threats around Federation space. Task Force 56 was created, under the initial command of Captain Lauren Applewood, targeting the Northern Expanse, with the Romulans, Breen, Ferengi, and other entities their main focus. Little would Starfleet know is that there would be other forces at work, like a fledgling Rihansu Resistance and other pirate activity.
