The last of its kind, the creature could project the image of anyone or anything it wished into the minds of those around it, making it appear to change shape, sometimes assuming the form of its victims—as it did with Nancy Crater and Crewman Green.[1]

Latia was a lovely female who flirted with “Trip” Tucker and Malcolm Reed during their shore leave on Risa in 2151. Latia and “her” companion, Dee’Ahn, turned out to be male alien thieves in disguise—they robbed Trip and Reed, leaving the officers tied up in the basement of a Risan night club.[1]

U.S.S. Kelvin NCC-0514

U.S.S. Kelvin NCC-0514 (ST-11)
U.S.S. Kelvin NCC-0514 (ST-11)

Commanded by Captain Richard Robau in 2233, the Starship Kelvin was assigned to patrol near the Klingon border. Also serving aboard the Kelvin were first officer Commander George Samuel Kirk, Sr., his wife Lieutenant Winona Kirk, and helmsman Lieutenant Pitts.[1, 2]

ST11 Timeline

On Stardate 2233.04, the Kelvin detected an anomaly near the Klingon border that resembled a “lightning storm in space.” Upon investigation, an enormous Romulan ship, the Narada, emerged, having traveled back in time from the year 2384. The Narada immediately attacked, crippling the Kelvin. Captain Robau boarded the Narada, but was killed when the Romulans realized what had happened to them. Commander Kirk, now in command, followed Captain Robau’s final instructionsto him, ordering an evacuation of the ship in order to implement General Order 13 — attempting a last-ditch effort to destroy the Narada by ramming it with the Kelvin. Kirk was forced to sacrifice himself in order to pilot the ship, but he saved more than 800 lives in the process.[1]

Battle of Vulcan

On Stardate 2258.42, Vulcan was attacked by the Narada, a Romulan ship from the future. Six Starfleet ships were destroyed by the Narada:[1] the U.S.S. Truman,[1] the U.S.S. Farragut NCC-1647,[1] the U.S.S. Mayflower NCC-1621,[1] the U.S.S. Excelsior NCC-1718,[2] the U.S.S. Armstrong NCC-1784,[2] and the U.S.S. Defiant NCC-1764.[2] The U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 survived only because its departure from Earth was delayed, allowing Cadet James T. Kirk to warn Captain Christopher Pike of the danger that the ship faced.[1] Unfortunately, none were able to stand up to the power of the Narada‘s future weaponry, and Vulcan was destroyed by an artificial quantum singularity, killing billions of Vulcans in a matter of minutes.[1]

U.S.S. Truman

ST11 Timeline

The Starship Truman was part of a Starfleet task force destroyed by the Narada in the Battle of Vulcan on Stardate 2258.42. Prior to arriving on the scene, Captain Christopher Pike of the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 ordered Lieutenant Hannity to contact the Truman, but there was no response.[1]

U.S.S. Mayflower NCC-1621

U.S.S. Mayflower NCC-1621 (ST-11)

ST11 Timeline

The Starship Mayflower was part of a Starfleet task force destroyed by the Narada in the Battle of Vulcan on Stardate 2258.42. When the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 arrived on the scene, it nearly collided with the remains of the Mayflower‘s saucer section.[1]

The special features on the DVD/BluRay release revealed that the ship pictured was the Mayflower. Additionally, although the novelization stated that the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 narrowly avoided colliding with the wreckage of the U.S.S. Defiant NCC-1764‘s saucer as it came out of warp, on-screen evidence shows that the saucer, in fact, belonged to the Mayflower, which was of the same class.[1, 2]

Starbase 9

Starbase 9 (TOS DC v2 73)

Primarily a resupply post[3] near Pyris VII,[2] Starbase 9, commanded in the 2260s by Commodore Lee Block,[3] hosted a larger-than-usual science complement, which studied incoming transmissions from unmanned monitoring stations left behind by Starfleet explorers. When something strange happened in deep space, the officers of Starbase 9 were usually among the first to hear about it.[3] In 2266, the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 was en route to Starbase 9 for resupply when a near-collision with an uncharted black star propelled the ship back in time.[1] Several months later, it was the closest base when the Enterprise visited Pyris VII.[2]

Watchtower-class starbase (TOS-53)
Watchtower-class starbase (TOS-53)

The Federation asserted its sovereignty in space space through a series of starbases, which could be located on a planet’s surface or on a space station, or a combination of both. This network of starbases provided a wide range of services; starbases could act as supply posts, recreation facilities, scientific outposts, trade hubs, and administrative centers. While all starbases provided each of these services, many were noted for their superiority in one or two specific areas.[1]
