Star Trek: Cygnus

NCC-71954

Welcome to the USS Cygnus!

The USS Cygnus is a Nebula-class heavy cruiser which has seen decades of Starfleet service. After a recent refit, the ship has been assigned to the Fourth Fleet in Task Force 9 along the Breen border. As a Federation ship-of-the-line, her mission includes exploration, diplomacy, and defense, and in this often-lawless region, her presence is necessary to keep the peace and show the flag. Task Force 9 has been tasked with securing the trailing-coreward section of the Alpha Quadrant where the Federation intersects with Tzenkethi, Ferengi, Breen, and Kzinti space, an area that has long been noted for the porousness of the Federation's borders to raiders.

Thanks to the stabilization of the Barzan wormhole, this region is now home to the only reliable connection between the Alpha and Delta Quadrants, which has significantly upset the balance of power, and so the border is more dangerous than ever, necessitating that ships like the Cygnus hold the line and keep the situation from descending into chaos.

The Breen Frontier has long been the target of Breen and Kzinti predations—the Cyngus will stop them.

The Deneb Sector hides wonders and secrets—the Cyngus will find them.

The many diverse worlds in this area are tired of being ignored by the Federation—the Cyngus will bring them into the fold.

Will you be with us for this journey?


The USS Cygnus is a proud member of Bravo Fleet and of Task Force 9.
