The UNSS Asteria is a 12800s-era UNAC deep space exploration and scientific research vessel based out of LUNA-F1 in the Sol system. The Asteria primarily operates on or just past the edge of known space, though the crew often also run missions well within the frontier's boundaries.

See, that's a common misconception: engines aren't "controlled" explosions. They're contained explosions.

Vector ControlIntrepid-class standard RCS
Next time why don't you try turning the ship's vector 90 degrees while moving at 175 times the speed of light?
Communication Tools & Systems
Long-rangeUSSC Series 284 universal photonic ansible
Short-rangeIntrepid-class standard short-range electromagnetic communications array
Stabby somehow knocked out the ansible again while in the vents, so we're down to radio.

But that's a heck of a mouthful, so just call me Chuck!
Hangars & docked vessels

Sure the shuttles are pieces of shit, but they are functional pieces of shit, no matter how much they clank and wheeze.
