  • The Nightingale is an alumna of joint Starfleet-Daystrom Institute experiments in applying the information recovered with the Kelvin survivors from their ship’s Narada readings. As part of the experiment, select classes-in-development (such as the Constitution and Pyotr Velikiy) donated designs and a single vessel’s registry to the Institute — the result was the Shrelev II, a warship whose configuration echoed the Pyotr Velikiy that preceded it but departed from and expanded on its sturdiness, warp capability, internal systems, and more. Similar reinterpretation can be found in the Enterprise regarding its immediate Constitution-class family.
  • Formerly the Shrelev II, this vessel was decommissioned and immediately recommissioned in Stardate 2260, during a widely broadcast ceremony that reaffirmed Starfleet’s primary role as humanitarians and scientists. Rumors persist that this, combiend with assigning the Enterprise to a five-year voyage, was a blatant political maneuver to appease the Klingon and Romulan Empires. While no evidence exists to corroborate these claims, the mental image — two warships, built in response to weaponry from the far future, gutted for science and sent to the far reaches of the quadrant — is striking.
  • Nightingale’s warp core remains the original Pyotr Velikiy-class standard, despite the tug variant’s transition to the smaller, more efficient warp design of the Constitution-class. Starfleet Command felt that recommissioning the Nightingale as a humanitarian vessel while simultaneously improving its speed, operational range, and power output — destructive or otherwise — would be construed as disingenuous.
  • Similarly, while the Shrelev II carried a full complement of 54 Mark III photon torpedoes, the Nightingale has traded in these destructive warheads. In their place, she carries a robust suite of sensory probes, including:

Class-2 medium-range stellar telemetry/imaging probes
Class-3 short-range terrestrial/jovian planetary telemetry probes
Class-4 long-range terrestrial/jovian/stellar telemetry probes (w/ micro-probe burst)
Class-6 warning buoys
Class-7 reconnaissance/sensor network probes
Class-9 log buoys

  • The Nightingale’s dedication is taken from 20th century poet Sarah William’s “The Old Astronomer:” Though my soul may set in darkness, it will rise in perfect light; I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night.
  • Cargo pods retrofitted as Relief Modules; configured for long-term conveyance, residence, and support of personnel, and long-term conveyance and support of resources, goods, or equipment.
