History

The ship, originally the USS Newcastle, was stolen from a Federation Surplus Depot Z-twenty-one, a scrapyard for decommissioned ships. The ship has been completely "scrubbed" as much as possible of its previous registration details, which has made it difficult for anyone to identify the ship using sensor scans. There are no registration markings on the ship.

It's theft was eventually discovered by the USS Veritas using statistical probability to identify its warp core signature.

Lighting and Power Draw

Henley has all crew on permanent transporter lock, as an "insurance policy". To cater for this, extra power storage has been added to the ship, but even so non-primary systems such as lighting have been reduced to compensate. Henley considers this preferable, as he "prefers to work in the dark" and considers it to be "bad-ass" like the interior of a Klingon ship.

Early on in the ship's history, Marths tried to save as much power as he could. Initially, he assigned each crew member a replicator ration. However, this led to many violent and sometimes bloody confrontations between the crew. Marths then removed most of the installed replicators, and made one of the existing crew a cook. When the cook was seriously burned from a cooking oil fire, Marths replaced her with Jock Donovan, a fine cuisine chef that specialises in poultry.

Ship's Computer

The ship's computer has been renamed from "Computer" to "Baby". It can silently perform commands without any confirmation tone when addressed as "Oh Baby" by Marths.

Emergency Strategic Hologram

 
The ESH "Jezebelle"

An Emergency Strategic Hologram was installed by Marths in his ready room/personal quarters. It was re-programmed and renamed to "Jezebelle".

Decommissioning

After the Veritas apprehended Marths, the system's computer was reset back to Starfleet settings.
