April The "Talence" (NCC-1062) and "Thrace" (NCC-1064) perimeter action ships exceed velocity maneuvering records while on Fleet trials with the heavy cruiser "Alkaid" (NCC-1829). The ships regularly outscore the heavy cruiser, rendering her offensive capability ineffectual during multiple engagements [SotF2].

The U.S.S. "Decatur" (NCC-2500) returns from her extended-duration training cruise embarked upon in December [SotF].

June The U.S.S. "Sjoto" (NCC-1098) "Akula" class perimeter action ship is commissioned. She is the first of the "B" variants in this series [SotF2].

August Admiral Joseph Primmin (Special Operations, TacFleet) commands the Primmin's Hunt Exercise. The perimeter action ships "Acerra" (NCC-1049), "Jico" (NCC-1057), and "Armavir" (NCC-1059) are tracked into separate areas of operation by 3 individual task force units. Their orders are to avoid their respective group of "hunters" (each consisting of 1 heavy cruiser and 1 fast frigate) while remaining within their assigned areas of space. Utilizing all of the elements at their disposal, including speed, maneuverability, cloaking systems, and overall stealth characteristics, only the "Acerra" is located by her assigned search task force after 6 days of attempts [SotF2].

Volume Two/Number One of 'Ships of the Star Fleet: Akyazi class Perimeter Action Ships' (103rd edition) is first published [SotF2].

The Type 4D Combat Phaser sees widespread use by Star Fleet marines and security specialists [SFD].

Star Fleet Tactical and Star Fleet Operations decide that there are definite advantages in having a permanent test crew assigned to Strategic Design.

The U.F.P. consists of a total of 1,560 member systems [SFD].

Archeologists on Faramond make a major discovery: a basic chemistry book, perhaps a children's text, enabling translation of the language of the Old Culture [GN 12].

[reference stardate 2/29.16?] Dr. Caroline Ravenwood is awarded the Cochrane Award for her breakthroughs in psychotherapeutic engineering, which will eventually make possible the invention of the Holodeck [FASA].

[Y 180] The Hydrans and Orions begin operating fast patrol ships. Three U.F.P. dreadnoughts are converted to DN+'s. Warp 3.2 drones become available, although maximum ship combat speed is about warp 3.19-- anything faster than that ruins the tracking capability [SFB].

2291, January
The U.S.S. "Decisive" (NCC-3231) class fast frigate is commissioned. Having a smaller profile and faster than previous classes, 19 ships of this class are planned [SotF].

01 February [reference stardate 2/3002.1]
The 77th revised edition of "Star Fleet Training Command Regulations' is published [FASA].

Captain Roger Wright is assigned to the Cathedral Unit of Star Fleet [SfP].

[Y 181] The U.F.P. CV "MacArthur" crashes into the Romulan capitol during "Operation Remus." The Kzinti begin operating fast patrol ships and add them to their space control ship dreadnoughts. The Gorns, Romulans, and Tholians begin operating fast patrol ships. Ardak Kumerian is promoted to Admiral. Phil Kosnett is promoted to Commodore [SFB].

After 25 years the U.F.P. seal is changed. The new seal features a more uniform laurel wreath similar to that in the United Nations seal, circling an altered, gridless, view of the Treaty Zone emphasizing 3 stars. It will be approximately one year before the new seal is employed throughout all divisions of the U.F.P. but it shall remain unaltered for over 80 years. It may initially represent the Grand Alliance and clearly has its design lineage in the Star Fleet Space Station division emblem [ST VI, SfP, FASA, JRM2].

The upgrading of the 16 "Starstalker" (NCC-2117) class patrol cruisers to class 1b technology begins. The addition of dual phaser cannon makes this class the most heavily armed in the fleet [SfP].

The "Ranger" (NCC-2701) light cruiser class starship is launched. Featuring 12 phaser emplacements, two torpedo tubes, a complement of 470, and a maximum speed of warp 14.9, it is the most accepted light cruiser class starship since the introduction of the "Amchitka" (NCC-1310) class. The ECHO (Enhanced Collimation via Harmonic Oscillation) enhanced phaser system is scheduled to be tested on this new starship class [SfP]

A new starship class, the Tactical Cruiser, is launched. The U.S.S. "Thruxton" (NCC-2761) TacCruiser class features a ship's complement of 455, 4 phaser cannon, 12 standard phasers, 4 torpedo tubes, and a maximum speed of warp 15.3 [SfP].

The U.S.S. "S'Harien" (NCC-3107) class battlecruiser prototype is launched. Features include 12 phasers, 4 torpedo tubes, a ship's complement of 440, an emergency warp of 13.4, and a unique jettisonable secondary hull. This ship represents an improved and upgraded "Menahga" (NCC-3100) class battlecruiser, and plans are made to recall most of the "Menahga" starships back for refit following the commissioning of this improved battlecruiser class [SfP].

The long-heralded "Pharris" (NCC-3537) strategic frigate class is launched. Featuring three landing platforms, a complement of 375, warp 11.8 capacity, two torpedo tubes (of a new launch design mounted in the old hull position just below the bridge), and 12 standard phaser emplacements, it is yet another offshoot of the "Avenger" (NCC-1860) heavy frigate class but incorporating close-mounted warp nacelles [SfP].

Incorporating design elements of the "Avenger" (NCC-1860) class heavy frigates, the "Adamant" (NCC-3029) dreadnought class prototype is launched. Along with the traditional 3 nacelles, her elongated hull features 4 fore/aft firing megaphasers, 12 standard phaser emplacements, 4 photon torpedo tubes (in a weapons pod), but a complement of only 430 and an emergency maximum speed of warp factor 12.6 [SfP].

The "Dupleix" (NCC-2346) class perimeter action ship is tested, utilizing an experimental twin nacelle deployment to harness the absolute maximum speed (warp factor 14) and acceleration advantage for an Escort-design, while seriously sacrificing maneuverability. Her specs include 14 standard phaser emplacements, two fore/aft firing megaphaser cannon, and a complement of 311 [SfP].

The "Scimitar" (NCC-2901) fast destroyer class is the first attempt to achieve tandem nacelles at the bottom of a dorsal pylon in a starship. Chosen as a testbed vessel for both the BackUP phaser/photon torpedo augmentation system and the controversial Perseus Shield System, the "Scimitar" has a complement of 320, a maximum emergency warp of 12.4, 4 torpedo tubes, and 14 standard phasers (not counting the BackUP unit) [SfP].

Derived from the "Dupleix" (NCC-2346) dual nacelle design, the "Phantom" (NCC-2951) superscout prototype is launched, featuring the experimental "Opera" passive sensor pod array to serve as a mobile covert sensor platform. A complement of 300, 12 phasers, and an emergency max. speed of warp 13.6, makes this a unique class to be built [SfP].

The "Davenport" (NCC-2635) corvette class prototype is launched. The first experiment with lateral-oriented nacelles gives this class warp 13.6 maximum speed. Having virtually no secondary hull and a complement of only 275, this class is armed with only two fore/aft megaphaser cannon [SfP].

The prototype U.S.S. "Schmidt" (NCC-800) tug completes trial runs. This Class 2 spacecraft design having a complement of only 62, a cruising speed of warp 5, and a tractor beam nacelle with no ordnance, is scheduled to replace the "Ptolemy" (NCC-3801) class transport/tugs [SfP].

The "Archangel" (NCC-2294) class shuttlecarrier is launched. Intended to eventually replace the "Ariel" (NCC-2200) class shuttlecarriers, the "Archangel" features 6 landing bays, a ship's complement of 500, 14 phaser emplacements, warp 9.5 capacity, and two impulse drives [SfP].

The U.S.S. "Enterprise," drydocked at Starbase 1, undergoes systems upgrades to warp drive (the incorporation of salvaged Transwarp technology & intermix sequence giving the ship a maximum emergency velocity of warp 18.6), secondary propulsion (all pulsed laser reaction-control systems replaced with particle-beam thrusters), and the possible upgrading of life support and transporter systems--with the potential alteration of exterior hull markings in the near-future. This is also likely the time of her third bridge refitting or swapout. The new bridge module features the lateral relocation of turbolift shafts allowing the installation of a total of four aft stations (2 Tactical and 2 Master Sit- uation) instead of the previous two stations between the turbolift alcoves. This upgrade results in modification to the upper two deck levels in the command hull and relocation of the captain's ready room from B Deck to the outer perimeter of Deck 1, in addition to the usual individual bridge station instrumentation upgrades [SfP, EDP, ST VI, EBD].

stardates 9521.6-9529.1 (November?)
Unknown forces attack Themis and Kudao. The Klingon moon Praxis explodes, giving the Klingon Empire 50 years of life left.

"Potemkin" (NCC-1711). The assas- sination cult on Ssan is dissolved with the death of Shil Andrachis. Jocelyn Treadway, ex-wife of Dr. McCoy, also dies in the line of duty. "Enterprise" fatalities: Diaz (Security Officer) [GN 14].

Heading back to Starbase 1 (Sol System) for decommissioning, the "Enterprise" responds to an urgent distress signal from the "Excelsior" class space control ship "Bill Of Rights" (NCC-2010?). In orbit of the planet Faramond, the U.S.S. "Bill Of Rights" commanded by Captain Alma Anne Roth is found ensnared by a dampening field created by the renegade Roy Moss on the surface. An alien long-distance frequency- focus transporter left behind by an ancient civilization is engaged by Moss resulting in the world's destruction. The "Enterprise" heads back to Earth with Moss in custody where the U.F.P. president announces the new decision not to decommission the "Enterprise" and her sister ships [GN 12].
