USS Afton Promotional Poster, 2008

The primary goal of the United Federation of Planets has always been one of peaceful exploration of the galaxy, and The USS Afton is key instrument in achieving that goal. The Afton had originally undergone an internal reconfiguration to expand its medical facilities in order to better serve within Federation space during crisis situations, however many of those spaces have since been converted back to standard lab space or living quarters. The Afton's mandate is explore the vast regions of space that have yet to be charted, and to render aid to any Federation, neutral, or allied world when able. Secondary objectives are the defense of the Federation and its interests in Federation space and abroad, and to serve as a diplomatic symbol of the Federation at all times.

Mission Archives


Returning from the Cronus Cluster, the Afton put into dry dock for minor repairs and an internal refit. Rumors had been circulating of terrorists and extremists affiliating themselves with the League of Free Systems, a separatist group of Federation Colonists, were planning something big. Only a few days after pulling into port, terrorists struck the power distribution hub of Atlantis' drydock facilities causing massive power overloads aboard all ships docked there, including the Afton. The overload destroyed most of the EPS and ODN relays aboard the Afton leaving her essentially a furnished space frame with no way of operating any longer. The repair time was estimated at over a year, and so it was deemed necessary for the Afton's crew to be rotated to new commands in preparation for heightened operations against the League of Free Systems.
