Nebulas Class Starship

The USS Copernicus (NCC-69897) was a Nebulas-class Explorer in service to Starfleet in the late 23rd century. The Copernicus was launched from the Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards in 2270 and was placed under the command of Captain Black.


The Copernicus had finished doing a survey of an uncharted sector of space with the USS Discovery in 2276. They returned to Federation space and docked at Space Station 4 for some supplies. Commodore Black and Commodore Mcbeath were going to beam over to the Space Station to have dinner together when the station’s power generators overloaded and exploded. The Copernicus was about to get out of the path of the shock-wave when the explosion hit the ship as well. The extreme explosion was so intense that the Copernicus broke up and exploded killing everyone onboard. The Discovery managed to get out of the full impact of the explosion area but was hit by the shock wave, which severely crippled the ship. The Discovery investigated what made the Space Station explode killing everyone on the Station and destroying the Copernicus. They found out that it was a Jeloran Computer Virus that made the Space Station’s generators overload but was in fact transmitted by the Folians to try and begin a full scale war between the Federation and the Jelorans.
