USS Augusta

The USS Augusta was launched in 2256, after the incident at the Battle of the Binary Stars. Starfleet was desperately producing ships at a fast pace. To meet the Klingon threat head on. Starfleet needed to buy time, for their new heavy cruiser fleet to be completed.

The Nimitz Class was the new ship on the line, but she was almost outdated by her launch date. As soon as the Klingon War began, the klingon’s technological superiority was apparent. The design was retrofitted, and thanks to some major breakthroughs in Andorian weapons research, the Nimitz Class Mark II, was rushed into service. The first ship of this new revision would be the USS Augusta.

The USS Discovery mission was a top secret mission. Most of Starfleet did not know her true mission. However the USS Augusta, was tasked with finding new technology and reverse engineer klingon technology to help the war effort against the klingon empire. Starfleet was desperate to find a way of counter acting the Klingon superority they had over all of Starfleet.

The USS Augusta, was launched with one mission in mind. Find a way to win the war, she was loaded with a unit of corps of engineers, combat engineers and some of the lead scientist within the federation. They set off to go deep into klingon controlled space.

Commander Katherine Williams
Commanding Officer

Katherine is a by the book starfleet officer, well she was prior to the klingons attacking and declaring war against the Federation. Katherine is currently commanding officer of the USS Augusta a Nimitz Class Cruiser. Katherine had spent the past nine years getting herself into position to command a ship. Now that she is the captain, she wondered if she was ready to command? Katherine is a bit on edge, since the klingons declared open war against the Federation. She was concerned if the Federation could win the war. Katherine is typically a happy person, but is a little disappointment that Starfleet would not accept her request for early retirement. They offered to place her daughter and husband on Earth, but she did not want to be away from her family for a long period of time.
