After the Battle of the Round Table the USS Expedition was assigned many different roles: search and rescue, diplomacy, security, and exploration. Things have changed though in the Delta Quadrant and she’s on a mission of “fortified exploration,” or exploration through strength and might. Equipped with the latest Starfleet technology and firepower, USS Expedition‘s role is act as a protective, yet powerful asset in an area of space still recovering from skirmishes. Her crew, transferred from the Intrepid class ship, USS Boise, takes the charter of the Federation seriously with dignity and compassion, countered with determination and capable character. The Journey awaits!

The USS Expedition has just arrived to Pendragon starbase, with orders to search for and capture a rogue band of Maquis raiders who destroyed two Federation shipyards and killed over 300 Federation civilians, claiming that after the USS Defiant made Solosos III uninhabitable, the Maquis had cause to exact revenge. Fleeing toward the Round Table, the Maquis group found sanctuary with another group of terrorists, and the Federation dispatched the Expedition to assist sector authorities.
