17 September [reference stardate 2/1909.17]
Star Fleet approves the designs of new Star Fleet uniforms: Class A (Dress), Class B (Duty), Class C (Special) and Class D (Supplement) [URM, SFD].

September [reference stardate 2/1909]
the U.S.S. "Stockholm" (NCC-2789) Mark IV "Loknar" class frigate is re- fitted to the Mark V configuration [FASA].

October [reference stardate 2/1910]
The U.S.S. "Monson" (NCC-2392) "Chandley" class frigate is overtaken by four Klingon K-23 class destroyers in the Triangle. They board a captured Klingon ship which self-destructs killing two marine platoons aboard and the entire Klingon ship's crew. Because of this incident, Star Fleet policy states that before marines board any enemy vessel a complete scan must be made of the vessel to determine if the destruct systems are in operation [FASA].

The U.S.S. "Hannibal" (NCC-4350) Mark VI "Larson" class destroyer is refit- ted to the Mark VII configuration. The U.S.S. "Iotia" (NCC-2776) and the U.S.S. "Salos" (NCC-2781) Mark IV "Loknar" class frigates are refitted to the Mark V configuration. The U.S.S. "Kism" (NCC-2798) Mark V "Loknar" class frigate enters service [FASA].

The K-27C class escort enters service in the Klingon fleet [FASA].

27 October
The U.S.S. "Exeter" (NCC-1706) heavy cruiser is relaunched after conversion to the "Enterprise" configuration [SotF, HCE, FRS].

31 October [reference stardate 2/1910.31]
The new Star Fleet uniforms consisting of a wraparound maroon tunic, with black pants and boots, are issued. These may initially serve strictly as dress uniforms for an unspecified period of time. The duty undershirt and collar are color-coded, matching the color of the departmental stripe on the sleeve: white for admiralty/command, green for medical, gold for en- gineering/operations, grey for sciences/communications, black for ship's services/security, and red for cadet/trainee (with a color bar). The de- partmental stripe on the left sleeve is bordered with gold piping except in the cases of cadets and midshipmen. Officers, cadets, midshipmen, and chief petty officers wear a stripe at the right shoulder (clasp on front, Federation symbol on the back) and the left sleeve (8 centimeters from the cuff). Enlisted men and petty officers usually have the sleeve stripe as well as rectangular tabs at each shoulder. The sleeve stripe of a cadet being red and containing a diagonal bar of color denoting the department they are studying. The sleeve departmental stripe bears pips and bars in- dicating (initially at least) service length within Star Fleet with gold pips denoting years served as an officer and silver pips indicating years served as an enlisted man in one and five year terms in conjunction with bars. In later years pips and bars may be used to indicate commendations and/or citations earned in Star Fleet rather than service length. Rank is represented by means of ten variants of specialized gold (and in some cases silver) pins worn on the right shoulder, replacing the traditional sleeve mark braid. These first-issue rank pins may eventually be altered or up- dated in time. Flag officers have gold edging on the uniform front flap and a Flag Assignment Stripe above the rank insignia on the left sleeve. Uniform insignias are simplified and uniform, consisting of the arrowhead shield (on all uniforms except Class C): a silver inlaid gold plaque behind the gold shield denotes an officer whether commissioned or petty, while a gold shield without a plaque serves to indicate crewmen, cadets, and mid- shipmen (at least in the early stages of this uniform series). By the early 2290s, enlisted personnel will be required to wear name tags upon their duty uniforms. This series of uniforms will be extremely long last- ing, and kept in use through the early 24th Century with slight variations including alterations and elimination of the undershirt tunic [URM, FRS, LOR, SFD, ST II, ST III, ST IV, ST V, ST VI, TNG 241, TNG 259, TNG 163].

03 November

One of the first non-dreadnought classes to utilize 3 warp drive nacelles, the "Dakota" possesses warp 8.8 capacity and is designed to be a support ship for a variety of shuttlecraft in non-hostile and rear support areas. She carries a standard complement of 425, an impressive 28 shuttlecraft bays, and is lightly armed with 12 standard phasers. Some 56 vessels will comprise this class (NCC-5100-NCC-5155) and design features will later be incorporated into the "Archangel" (NCC-2294) class shuttlecarrier developed in the early 2290s [JRM2, SfP].

The conversion of 8 "Bonhomme Richard" class heavy cruisers to "Endeavor" class specifications is approved [SotF].

The U.S.S. "Genser," along with five other escorts accompanying a convoy of neutronic fuel carriers to the rimward frontier, scans an unidentified object travelling on a parallel course. The "Genser" breaks away from the convoy to investigate and disappears. After several minutes the "Genser" reappears, maintaining its last course and speed but doesn't respond to radio calls. Sensor scans reveal that the entire crew had disappeared. The convoy is halted and searches are made but nothing is found to solve the mystery. The mysterious object had also disappeared. The U.S.S. "Genser" is later assigned to active duty in the rimward frontier areas [FASA].

The Mark IV "Baker" class destroyer enters service with a complement of 273 and warp 9 capacity [FASA].

[reference stardate 2/1912]
The Mark I "Gagarin" class research vessel enters service in Star Fleet [FASA].

The Cardassians attempt to make common cause with the Bekiir (literally "badger" or "digfish"--extreme xenophobes from the Gamma Quadrant) against the Klingons, but the Bekiir destroy the 3 Cardassian ships sent as emis- saries. The Cardassians decide to leave them alone. A Cardassian kuluk- metal security box from this time (Uta Dul dynasty) bearing a directed- energy weapon and a Bekiir time key is sealed with a force shield lock. A century later it will fall into the hands of Captain Square-Deal Djonreel, a Lonatian trader, and be directly responsible for the total massacre of Deep Space 9--in an alternate timeline [DSN #5].

In the "Mirror" universe, David Marcus escapes from the Delta Hydra VI concentration camp. Enraged, Emperor Nogura has Carol Marcus executed as an example of what happens to those who oppose the empire [TBoT #14].

This ship is designed to deliver a large barrage of photon torpedoes (or launch a large number of probes and sensors) via a unique photon hull housing 8 tubes. The "Abbe" has warp 9 capacity, 12 phaser emplacements, and a complement of 401 [JRM].

The "Gregory" (NCC-7700) class exploration cruiser is authorized. This class, equipped with enhanced sensor arrays for extensive solar system exploration and two dual impulse units for added in-system maneuverability, will be used to investigate worlds for formal first contacts. Each ship has warp 8.2 capacity, a standard ships complement of 443, and a mere 12 phaser emplacements. The "Gregory" class will consist of 83 ships total (NCC-7700-NCC-7782) [JRM2].

Councillor Procuia's subcommittee issues its controversial report of find- ings and, with engineering testimony and data from the publication 'Merrel's Fleet Review' adding weight to the "bigger is better" argument, the "Akyazi" program is not only reduced but put on temporary hold alto- gether [SotF2].

11 November
The Military Staff Committee orders an additional 15 strike cruisers of the "Decatur" design (NCC-2501-14 & 2519), bringing the total number to 20. As a result, the proposed "Akyazi" class perimeter action ship program is put on hold [SotF, SotF2].

"Eagle" (NCC-1719) "Endeavor" class heavy cruiser is relaunched--23 days ahead of schedule, before many of her subsystems are installed, and immediately assigned to TacFleet on classified status. As a result she will never be listed as the lead ship of the class. After de- classification it will later be revealed that the "Eagle" provided command and control coordination in the successful Cabria Bay operation [SotF, HCE].

13 September
The U.S.S. "Endeavor" (NCC-1716) heavy cruiser is drydocked at Star Fleet Division, San Francisco Yards, Earth for drastic refitting [SotF, HCE].

This first variation on the "Enterprise" class utilizes LN-60 warp engines and is capable of only warp 11, has a complement of only 435, and is armed with twelve phasers and two torpedo banks. Seven ships will form this scaled-down "Enterprise" class, all rebuilt from older heavy cruisers [SotF, HCE].

21 October
Construction begins on the second ship in the "Decatur" class, U.S.S. "Belknap" (NCC-2501), at Cosmadyne's Boston shipyards. Numerous improvements are to be incorporated into the design and the ships will eventually be redesignated "Belknap" class [SotF2, SsD].

Diplomatic contact is achieved between the Prit and Kes factions on the planet Kesprit III. It will be short-lived [TNG 260].

The construction of 43 "Tikopai" class ships is authorized [SotF].

January
The "Cheetah" (NCC-3900) class fast cruisers are authorized for construct- ion. This class was designed to meet Star Fleet's need for fast, general purpose cruisers, employing 4 warp engine nacelles which phase-shift through mixed sets to reduce the stress to any one engine enabling sustain- ed speeds for longer periods of time than most other vessels (having a warp 10 maximum speed). At least 10 of these proposed 42 ships (NCC-3900-NCC-3941) will be constructed. They each have a ship's complement of 346 and are armed with 12 phaser emplacements and 2 photon torpedo banks. This class is a forerunner of the "Constellation" class star cruiser. The earliest proposal of a ship with 4 nacelles has its roots in the "Crusaider" (NCC-2200) class battleship, authorized c. 2270 to fill the need for a heavy starship with long range weapons. The "Crusaider" class proposal was for 4 ships (NCC-2200-NCC-2204) of "Federation" class design, each armed with the heavier phasers used on starbases, and with 4 propul- sion units attached to the secondary hull in a radial "X" configuration. Utilizing PB circumferential engines, the "Crusaider" only had warp 10 capacity and the class' fate remains undocumented [JRM, JRM2, CBS].

[Y 167]

07 February
The U.S.S. "Belknap" (NCC-2501) strike cruiser is commissioned. Capable of warp 12, these cruisers which will total 28, combines many of the features of the heavy cruisers and dreadnoughts into a more warp dynamic design. Basically the "Belknap" class is an "Enterprise" class heavy cruiser with a smaller secondary hull--having increased maneuverability. They will be assigned patrol duties along the U.F.P./Klingon Neutral Zone, their maneuverability giving them the best battle advantage over the Klingon "K't'inga" class destroyers. In the 2280s they will be deployed in three ways: 1. As members of scientific/exploratory task forces formed around "Enterprise" and "Tikopai" class heavy cruisers, 2. As special units reserved for military or defense assignments, and 3. As guardians of and "on-call" respondents for out- post stations along the Romulan Neutral Zone. The U.S.S. "Belknap" will, on stardate 7893.07, verify the existence of the Klingon "K't'inga" class D-8 warship "Crenitas" ("Battlequeen," ChR 724) in Romulan service [SotF, FRS, DPS, SsD, LOR, SFD].

Saavik, ward of Sarek of Vulcan, enters Star Fleet Academy. Sarek's family prestige heads off a storm of controversy over the admission of a 'Romulan' to the Academy. Though only half-Romulan and raised as a Vulcan, many people see Saavik as an enemy alien. Nevertheless, Saavik is a valuable resource to Star Fleet, for whom she interprets intelligence data about the Romulans. Because of her help, many myths about the Romulans will be put to rest, and the U.F.P. develops a better understanding of Romulan psychology [FASA, TOS #49].
