The year is 2158 and the Coalition of Planets is at war. The Romulan Star Empire has attacked and destroyed Earth’s first major outpost and after the Coalitions confusing response they are now embroiled in a war with an enemy that will not accept anything but their utter defeat. It’s been a little more than two years since the war began and things are not going well for Starfleet and it’s allies. Almost one-third of the fleet has fallen at the hands of the Romulan navy and the losses continue to mount.
Fearing the worst, and with the help of the Vulcan and Andorian governments, the shipyards at Utopia Planitia are churning out new ships at an astonishing rate. Thanks to the experience gained by the Enterprise and her explorations, a new class of ship was concieved using the NX-class as a foundation. The NX-refit boasts a secondary hull, enhanced weapons platforms, defense shields, and a Mark VI warp drive. These designs were on the backburner for Starfleet before the war, and now thanks to Coalition support, the new ships are quickly becoming a reality.
The refit process took a little longer to get to the NX-04, which had finished construction around the onset of the war and only as a standard NX-class, but it was eventually refitted and launched at the beginning of 2158. These new ships, the Coalition hoped, would turn the tide of the war in their favor and bring it to a swift end.
