The USS Endeavour is the first of the Endeavour class line of ships. Like the U.S.S. Sojourner, the U.S.S. Endeavour (NCC-98500) is almost entirely new construction built on top of an Odyssey space-frame that was in very early stages of assembly. Her speciality is tactical readiness, and her design was heavily informed by the success of the much smaller Avenger and Arbiter-class battlecruisers.


Compared to the other Block-II variants, the Endeavour specializes in firepower, with a robust electro-plasma conduit network. Starfleet planners anticipate many engineers on the Endeavour and her sister ships will make full use of this power system to install modifications that will enhance their weapon power throughput even further than "stock".


ASDB engineers designed the Endeavour's saucer section so that her auxiliary impulse engines can be utilized while the saucer is docked, slightly improving speed and manoeuvrability compared to other Star Cruiser variants.


Her saucer section also features a pair of extra torpedo launchers in the bow and two dedicated space superiority targeting arrays, one ventral fore and one dorsal aft.


Besides her considerable combat prowess, Starfleet engineers have not forgotten Endeavour's role as a fleet flagship. She comes equipped with state-of-the-art communications systems and a brand-new JYNZ Systems Flagship Tactical Computer Core, which greatly facilitates the coordination of squadrons and fleets, improving the whole element's combat performance through precise threat assessment and fire control.


As with the other Block II designs, the Endeavour is capable of launching an Aquarius-class destroyer from an external docking slip in her aft hull. Additionally, (and also like her sister ships and many other Starfleet cruisers), the Endeavour may separate her saucer section should the need arise.


This level of flexibility yields a powerful addition to Starfleet's order of battle, though like any Federation ship of the line the Endeavour is host to dozens of scientific laboratories and a variety of specialized instrumentation. It's the hope of many in Starfleet that these scientific tools will be more useful to the Endeavour's crew in the near future than all of her tactical systems, advanced as they may be.


Built in the Laikan Starfleet Shipyards on Andor and launched on Stardate 92084.9, the Endeavour completed her shakedown cruise under the command of Admiral Sebastian Bishop, but was forced to return to drydock soon after due to an overwhelming suite of technical errors. The Concorde-class Endeavour remained in service while the newer vessel was made ready for deployment. When she was finally released from drydock, she was given to Captain Samuel Bishop in 2417.


After initial growing pains, the Endeavour participated in the Battle of DS13, and though she survived intact, she did require significant repair. With a tentative ceasefire between the Azedi and the Federation, the Endeavour transitioned from an offensive duty to exploratory one. As of 2419, the Endeavour still places focus on tactical and engineering operations, with the scientific and medical departments playing a secondary role in ship duty.


In late 2419, Captain Bishop was reassigned to the Executive Officer of the 38th Fleet, and a few months later, Captain Mirazuni Ayesha was placed in command.

Assault Cruiser - Sovereign Class


Status: Destroyed (2407 - c. 2409)

Commanding Officers:

  • Captain Fredrick Hopps (2407 - 2409)

History:

The Endeavour had a short stint in service before being destroyed by the Borg. The Endeavour NCC 71805 was nearing the end of its service and was ready to be decommissioned. This, however, was wildly protested against by the then captain of the Endeavour, Frederick Hopps. Hopps was one of Starfleet's finest officers, having turned down many promotions to Admiral and had been in charge of many important starships. His favourite had been the Endeavour. Although he put up a long, hard-fought battle, the Endeavour was finally decommissioned and Hopps was offered the Endeavour. Ready to turn down the posting, he eventually accepted when he learnt that if he turned the offer down, the command would be offered to his rival, Captain Teliah Zh'ivinnan.


Throughout the first year of his command, it was no secret that Hopps loathed his command. His logs and reports back to Starfleet about the Endeavour were conflicted and unproductive and this hindered the development of the Sovereign Class. Not being able to relieve him of command; he was too good, Starfleet assigned him to a deep space mission, one that would take years to complete. Given Starfleet's fear of the Borg, and the original Endeavour having survived both the Battle of Wolf 359 and Battle of Sector 001, the Endeavour was assigned to a deep space reconnaissance mission to try and scout out the Borg, hopefully, to gain a deeper knowledge about the deadly foe.


The Endeavour remained in complete radio silence for two years. Finally, on a routine trading mission, a trade ship came across some wreckage that belonged to a starship. The print on the wreckage said "USS Endeavour (71805-A). One of the only surviving pieces of wreckage were the Captains Logs, somehow still intact. The last entry is given below;

This is Captain Frederick Hopps of the USS Endeavour. This ship...has performed above and beyond expectations. It has looked after the crew...and myself, with such diligence and care that no other ship could. It has become a friend of the crew...and to me... like family. It gives me no greater pleasure than to go down with this ship, her hallowed halls my final resting place. Hopps out.
