These are the Voyages of the Starship Aurora. One of the Federation’s New Nova Class Planetary Survey Vessel’s. Meant to eventually supplant the Older Oberth class Science vessels, Starfleet is slowly phasing the ships in, to help develop parameters of their Operation based upon actual experiences of crew’s manning them.
The Captain and Crew of the Oberth Class Science Vessel U.S.S. Yasuni, is one of the first to have their ship decomissioned and be transferred over to One of the New Nova Class Vessel’s
The U.S.S. Aurora.
Our story begins as the crew complete their transfer at Starbase 133, and await their Shakedown Cruise.
