“The quest for truth is a noble one.”

Captain Nemo

The Atlantis takes its name from a mythological island on Earth that spawned an incredibly advanced culture in primitive times. The mythology states that the island was lost to the sea in a great cataclysm, and people for millennia after attempted to prove this island and culture even existed. Mostly, Atlantis represented what things could be like, and caused other cultures to strive for greatness too.

One of Starfleet's most advanced designs to date, the Intrepid-class light explorer comes equipped with a host of technology designed to help it perform its mission, and to give it the effectiveness of ships much larger and less maneuverable than it. These include multi-spectral shields, bio-neural gel packs and circuitry and a variable geometry warp propulsion system.

The Intrepid can attain extremely high speeds not only because of its advanced warp core, but due to its variable geometry warp nacelles, which allow the ship to adjust its warp field for maximum efficiency. The vessel's streamlined shape also allows it to project an unusually efficient warp field. Since the class' primary mission profiles involve exploration and scientific experimentation, it possesses an extensive complement of laboratories and scientific facilities.

The captain's yacht attached to the Intrepid is a special ship known as an "Aeroshuttle." Patterned in part after the Danube-class runabout, it is much larger and more maneuverable than a typical yacht. It also can host a wide ranch of mission platforms itself.

Although not intended as a front-line combat vessel, the Intrepid has powerful tactical systems. These include multiple Type X phaser arrays and four high-yield torpedo launchers.

Most intriguingly of all, the Intrepid has atmospheric and planet fall capability - making it the largest Starfleet vessel with those abilities. When it lands, four large articulated "legs" emerge from the ventral side of the engineering hull to support it.

The Atlantis is assigned to Task Force 124 as the groups Flag Ship. Task Force 124 and the USS Atlantis are tasked with exploration of the Par'tha Expanse. The Atlantis is headquartered out of Deep Space 26.
