Aracnosian Conundrum

CAPTAIN’S LOG
STARDATE 7621.4

Having been pulled through some sort of rift, we find ourselves trapped in some sort of pocket universe.  We’ve recovered a number of personnel from USS Hood.  Hood herself remains fused to the alien craft and salvage is impossible.  My engineer has scavenged the hulks and jury rigged most systems online – we are in dire need of dilithium though and our best bet seems to be a nearby rogue planet.  Engines are operating at 23% and we should arrive within the hour.

Class I Frigate - Miranda-class

And they shall have a starship...


USS Oberon NCC-1880, Miranda-class. Here is the technical order for the class - in the style of Fran Joseph's Star Fleet Technical Manual, based on Ghostrunner's Callisto miniature, kitbashed with parts from Vance's Toolkits.
