At the dawn of the 24th century, the galaxy is an unstable place. Old enemies are becoming new friends, but that is not to say all concerned are happy. Exploration is extending the reach of the Federation farther than it has ever been before. New races, both friend and foe, are being encountered every month. New worlds are charted almost daily. New phenomena challenge the bravery, intelligence, and creativity of the people who would explore the depths of space. In the midst of all this, the starships of the Federation Star Fleet continue to stand proudly as the vanguard of exploration, defense, and support in the Final Frontier.

One of these starships is the U.S.S. Avenger.
