Ship History

To date, three Federation starships have borne the name Pavonis over a period of nearly 150 years. Named for the geological formation on the planet Mars, the most recent ship of the line is a Galaxy-class starship launched in 2377. It is currently under the command of Commander Kalena Stormcrow.

Pavonis Mons rests east of Olympus Mons and Amazonis Planitia in the southern hemisphere of Mars. With the human colonization of the planet, Pavonis Mons took on new importance after the discovery of dilthium crystals deep within the dormant volcano, and a mine was established in 2147. These crystals helped power some of the earliest of warp-capable starships and eventually the city of Pavonis was established at the base of the mountain.

The city of Pavonis quickly became one of the major population centers on the planet and still remains so even into the 24th Century. While the mines are now inactive with the discovery of dilthium crystal recrystallization, the city continues to prosper as a major industrial center and the mines have been preserved as a national park.

Launched on April 9, 2249 the Miranda-class U.S.S. Pavonis NCC-1723 left Starfleet's Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards bound for the Romulan Neutral Zone to enforce treaty stipulations. Serving in numerous confrontations with both the Klingons and Romulans, the ship eventually returned to Utopia Planitia in 2270 to undergo a major refit.

The Pavonis once again returned to patrol the Neutral Zone and later to render aide in the first Federation convoy to enter Klingon space after the Khitomer Conference of 2293. She was decommissioned in 2299 after sustaining significant damage while studying a still unknown stellar phenomena rumored to actually have been caused by a Romulan experiment of some sort.

The second Federation starship to bear the name Pavonis launched from the San Francisco Fleet Yards in orbit of Earth on October 2, 2331. At the time, the Pavonis joined the ranks of the largest starship class constructed, the Ambassador class, and remained an active member of the 5th Fleet until 2374.

While the rest of the fleet participated in a training maneuver, Dominion forces closed on planet Betazed with the intent of capturing it. The Pavonis fought valiantly, steering the attacking force away from several escaping civilian passenger ships before the nearby 5th Fleet could render aide. Lasting only a few minutes, the majority of the vessel drifted into the planet's atmosphere and crash landed in a remote mountain region, all hands lost.

With the end of the Dominion War, the area surrounding the crash site was turned into a memorial to commemorate all the lives that were lost in the defense of the planet, as well as during the dreadful occupation by enemy forces.
