Featured Starship articles spotlight established starships that you can use as a ship for players for immediate play (such as for a demo or convention game), or as an NPC ship in your campaign. Some are a natural fit with characters from the Featured Crew articles. Only Core Rulebook rules will be used (with perhaps a few special exceptions, such as the spaceframes from the Command Division supplement).
The U.S.S. Hathaway was the stripped-down starship given to Riker to command during a battle simulation, in Operation Lovely Angel in 2365 (see the TNG episode, “Peak Performance“. This Constellation-class starship was launched in 2285 from the Copernicus Ship Yards on Luna.
By 2368, the Hathaway was restored to active duty, participating in Picard’s blockade at the Klingon-Romulan border (see the TNG episode, “Redemption II“). Although it wasn’t selected to be part of the tachyon network, it participate in a support role for the gathered fleet.
The Hathaway would be ideal for a small crew, either long-term or temporarily. To reinforce its stripped-down nature and use in a variety of activities, I gave it a Multipurpose Explorer mission profile, as well as Modular Laboratories. You can also draw upon Sirna Kolrami and the Braslota System if you would like to tie the Hathaway closely with the “Peak Performance” episode.
I include here a version created through the official Modiphius app (with a minor revision to the Tractor Beam strength).
