“With a fork drive Nature out, She will ever yet return; Hedge the flower bed all about, Pull or stab or cut or burn, She will ever yet return.”

Robert Graves

The USS Marigold is an NPC Intrepid class Starfleet vessel commanded by Captain Koth Th’shrysrir. Its primary mission is science and exploration, with its theatre of operation being the surrounding areas of Starbase 173, near the Romulan Neutral Zone.

Historically, there have been a number of ships bearing the name Marigold, with the prefixes HMS and USS.

As well as this, famous explorer Sir Francis Drake commanded an expedition around the world from 1577 to 1580. His fleet contained five ships: the Pelican (later renamed the Golden Hind), Elizabeth, Swan, Christopher, and the Marigold.

Doz Finch served on this vessel as a Master Chief Petty Officer for over a decade, before a disaster on-board precipitated her commission to the officer ranks; her graduation at the Officer Candidate School resulted in her first posting as an ensign aboard the USS Gorkon.
