Note: The USS Eclipse, lead ship of the Eclipse class, is featured in the future timeline in Mission Five
The Eclipse class is the Federation's newest starship, the result of years of painstaking research. Launched in 2412, it was generations ahead of anything in the quadrant. Featuring four nacelles and a tetryon reactor (as opposed to the matter/antimatter warp core of most Starfleet vessels), the Eclipse is a radical departure for Starfleet. Her advanced systems were originally tested on the USS Portland, one of the last surviving Miranda class starships in the fleet.
The lead ship, the USS Eclipse, is under the command of Captain Alhambra del Bolero, the last captain of the USS Portland.
