The USS Hades is one of several Prometheus Class starships currently serving in Starfleet. A core ship of the 52nd Fleet during the Federation Civil War the hades found itself performing complex and hazardous missions that ultimately assisted in the successful restoration of the United Federation of Planets.
The crew of the Hades are diverse and battle-tested. They have often found themselves forced to deal with intense situations that require the firepower and instincts of a combat-ready crew. The Vessel, although still a Tactical heavy Cruiser, has also begun undertaking scientific and navigational surveys in a fleet returning to their pre-war status.
The ship has been responsible on many occasions for heroic acts, incredible discoveries and unveiling dangerous intrigues. Her dedication and commitment to the fleet and to the Federation are legendary, and her dogged determination and tenacity have won the day on many occasions where failure was not an option.
After concluding their shore leave, the crew of the USS Hades were once again dispatched to active duty. The ship, assigned to conduct a series of surveys for navigational and scientific studies, quickly fell into the routine hum-drum of the monotony that always accompanied such missions.
The monotony was broken, however with the reassignment of the Hades to the planet Lertain IV, where a cultural scientific study was underway. The survey team, lost one of their scientists and out of necessity and fear of breaking the Prime Directive, requested assistance. Starfleet Command, then assigned the USS hades, the closest ship to the task.
The Lertainians were in a state of technological development similar to that of Medieval Earth circa 1300 AD, complete with a rampant pandemic that was beginning to affect the population. The Hades raced to the site of the incident and began making preparations to deploy away teams in the hopes of locating the missing scientist before any cultural contamination took place.
