A legendary Greek hero, Odysseus was the king of Ithaca, a small island in the Ionian sea, where he lived with his wife Penelope. He was known to Romans as Ulysses. After fighting the war against the city of Troy with the Greeks, he started his journey home. His sailing journey was obstructed by the sea god Poseidon. During his journey he had many incredible adventures, but his renowned intelligence helped him to survive the numerous difficulties, although his crew wasn’t so lucky.
Many centuries later and a new Ulysses commences her own journey, travelling the stars and taking part in many challenging adventures, but hopefully her crew fairs better than that of the Roman God.
Ulysses operates in an area of space known as the Gavarian Corridor. The Corridor is a 40 lightyear stretch of space leading to the unexplored northern area of the Beta Quadrant. During her major refit to bring her up to modern standards, the ship has been located at Deep Space 10 in the Trivas system. Her initial adventures will see the Galaxy-class starship and her crew put to the test as they seek to rebuild Starfleet’s presence in the Corridor.
Captain Colby Drayton
As master and commander of the Galaxy class USS Ulysses, Captain Colby Drayton (or Cole to his friends) commands one of Starfleet’s proudest vessels. As a talented leader and diplomat, Colby manages to bring the very best out of ship and crew in a wide variety of situations. Adored and respected by those under his command, Drayton has a reputation for being firm but fair and will stop at nothing to achieve his objectives and help his crew carry out Starfleet’s mandate to ‘explore strange new worlds, seek out new life and new civilizations and to boldly go where no one has gone before.’ A master at hiding his true feelings about himself, Cole harbours a lot of guilt, regret and a strong yearning for peace – by-products of recent traumas and losses, and issues that he shares with no-one.

With Starfleet’s enforced withdrawal, a number of worlds in the Gavarian Corridor were left to fend for themselves in a hot zone rife with conflict. With Starfleet's return, work is required to rebuild trust and diplomatic links with the independent worlds of the Corridor. The people of the Corridor are free to negotiate trade deals and treaties and establish trade routes. Ulysses will patrol the space lanes, protect the weak, carry out negotiations and seek to rebuild the relations.
