The USS Tiger, NCC-52199-A, is the sixth Prometheus class vessel built in the Fleet, commissioned and built at Utopia Planitia. The Tiger-A was dispatched to the Ithassa Region to replace the loss of the USS Independence-A in the Mirror Universe. The Tiger-A launched under the command of Fleet Captain Sidney Riley.

Prometheus Class USS Tiger-A

Prometheus class heavy cruisers are an onset of combat support Fleet vessels, designed primarily in response to technologically advanced threats facing the Federation. Developed from a combination of technologies pioneered by the Defiant, Sovereign and Intrepid classes, the Prometheus utilizes the latest in ablative armour, warp field technology, and quantum weaponry. It is the only ship class which is capable of separating into three sections (upper engineering hull, lower engineering hull, and the saucer section) coordinated through its multi-vector assault mode.

Strikingly beautiful and incredibly serene, the Prometheus Class allows the capabilities of a scientific vessel in the midst of deep space, giving room for families and civilians. As such, the Tiger-A is equipped with the latest in Starfleet's recreational enhancements to enrich the lives of those serving and residing on board. Combining a state of the art outfit with the protection that the Prometheus Class starship provides, the crew of the Tiger-A may be safe in the knowledge that their loves ones are cared for. Using the USS Independence-A as an example, the USS Tiger-A has been a hotbed and a springboard for the research and development of several new technologies that can only benefit the fleet's position in the Ithassa Region in the long years to come. While the Tiger-A is designed as a tactical assault cruiser, it serves a much wider role, filling deep space exploration and diplomatic/military roles and utilizing the full advancements of science, medical, and engineering facilities to continue the exploration and defence of the Ithassa Region as Starfleet's Flagship vessel.

The USS Tiger-A is currently under command of Fleet Captain Sidney Riley
with the assistance of the most advanced crew Starfleet has to offer.

"Well, space is there, and we're going to climb it,
and the moon and the planets are there,
and new hopes for knowledge and peace are there.
And, therefore, as we set sail we ask God's blessing
on the most hazardous and dangerous and greatest adventure
on which man has ever embarked."

John F. Kennedy, 12th September 1962
