I am reading Part 1 of Star Trek Destiny and it's about Starfleet finding Columbia - NX-02 in the Gamma Quadarant by Captain Sisco and Jadzia Dax. The NX-02 crashed on a planet their with most of it intact but no crew remains. Chief Obrien has a hard time getting the 24th Century equipment like the tricordor to interface with the NX Class computers and he has to come up with some device to access it. O'Brien even says how old and antiquated their systems were. He almost sounded frustrated with their equipment. Just has he is about to do it the Dominion War erupts and the Columbia survey has to wait.

After the war Captain Erzi Dax of the USS Aventine comes back to find out what happened to the Comlumbia and why it ended up in the Gamma Quadarant. Star Trek: Destiny is a three part trilogy books series.

I also got the Enterprise Koybashi Maru Book but had to order Of The Good that Men Do they didn't have that at the bookstore. I thought I had better read those before I got the Enterprise Romulan War books.

So this story is based on the picture of the Columbia from the Ships Of The Line book...



Enterprise already fit in the Star Trek universe anyway...

:logical:

I forgot about that artwork.

Captain Dax's Chief Engineer thought about beaming the NX-02 up to the USS Aventine's cargo bay because they were going to be called away but Captain Dax didn't want to risk the NX-02 breaking up during transport. The USS Aventine must be a big ship with huge cargo bay's.

The pic looks intriguing. Do they manage to find out what happened to the crew? (spoilers don't scary me)

I know their is a Book forum but I thought this also fit in the Enterprise forum since some have said how the NX-01 was too advanced for it's time and looked to 24th Century like.

Nice starship.  :cool:  :D

The Vesta-class held a crew of seven-hundred-and-fifty. The ships' main shuttlebay was located on deck ten. The Vesta-class starship USS Aventine served as a test-bed for a number of new Starfleet technologies, including quantum slipstream drive. Other experimental systems aboard the Aventine included type XII phaser cannons, a multidimensional wave-function analysis module, a sympathetic fermion transceiver, and a chroniton integrator, the latter of which could be used to take sensor readings several seconds into the future when the ship was using its slipstream drive. Some of the systems being tested were deemed top secret. (ST novels: Gods of Night, Mere Mortals)

In addition to the experimental systems the class was otherwise top of the line, able to achieve at least Warp 9.99.(ST - Destiny novel: Mere Mortals)
