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 (Federation or Klingon) rules will be used (with perhaps a few special exceptions, such as the spaceframes from the Command Division supplement).
The I.K.S. Maht-H’a (IKC-11574) was seen in the TNG episode “The Chase”. It was commanded in 2369 by Captain Nu’Daq, who destroyed the ecosystem of Indri VII during a race to decode a billion-years-old genetic code program by the ancient humanoids. He believed it to be a weapon. Due to the nature of the quest, I have given the ship advanced scientific and medical Talents.
