USS Endeavour

Registry No. NCC-71805

Type: Nebula Class


The USS Endeavour NCC-71805 has a long and honourable history.  In 2367, under the command of Captain Amasov, the Endeavour was the only ship to survive the battle of Wolf 359 intact.  A year later, the ship was involved in the Tachyon detection grid, designed to prevent Romulan ships infiltrating Klingon space during the Klingon civil war.

Shortly afterwards, Captain Amasov was promoted to the admiralty and his then first officer, Commander James Mackenzie was promoted to captain and given command of the ship.

During the Dominion war, Endeavour served with distinction, having been given orders to get out there and cause as much trouble for the Dominion as it could.  In February 2375 the Endeavour answered a distress call from the Orinoco, a freighter under attack by several  Jem'Hadar ships.  The distress call was also answered by a Klingon bird of Prey, the IKS Hegh'Ta.

The two ships teamed up together for the remainder of the war, sharing crew and resources.  Hegh'Ta's science officer was offered a field promotion to commander and temporarily transferred to the position of First Officer on the Endeavour, a promotion that was later endorsed by the Klingon High Council and Starfleet Command.

After the war, due to the success of the cooperation between the two ships, Endeavour was assigned to serve with the Tenth Klingon Fleet, an assignment that led to the formation of the Federation/Klingon Rapid Response Fleet.

The ship is currently under the command of its former first officer, Kehlan sutai Inigan, who now holds the rank of Rear Admiral.

Commanding Officer:

General Kehlan

Species:

Klingon/Human

Biography:

Kehlan was born in October 2345.  Orphaned at the age of three, her family were never traced and she grew up in House Gensa, a notorious orphanage on the outskirts of First city, Qo'noS

Shortly after her 15th birthday she won a prestigious science competition and was awarded a place at a top university, a prize which included a year of study on Earth and a further year at the Vulcan Science Academy.

She represented the Klingon Empire at several important science conferences and eventually joined the Klingon Defence Force.  She was assigned to the IKS Death Hand under the command of captain Kay'Vin and served as junior science officer until the destruction of that vessel in battle.

When Kay'vin was given command of the new, experimental Hunter class vessel, IKS Hegh'Ta, Kehlan transferred with the rest of Death Hand's surviving crew and was promoted to Senior Science Officer.

During the Dominion War, Hegh'Ta served side by side with the USS Endeavour and due to crew shortages, she was transferred on a temporary basis to the Endeavour to serve as First Officer.  The transfer was made permanent after her marriage to the ship's captain, the Terran James Mackenzie.

It should be noted that as well as being a science expert, Kehlan is also an excellent pilot and is qualified to fly experimental vessels.

She is now Rear Admiral of the Federation/Klingon Rapid Response Fleet based at Starbase 24

Service:

Kehlan was a science specialist who represented the Klingon Empire at several major conferences. She joined the Defence force and served as Science Officer on the IKC Hegh’Ta. She transferred to the Endeavour as First Officer during the Dominion War. Her posting was made permanent by Starfleet Command and she was promoted to captain in 2378.

Kehlan's career:

2360:  Attended First City University, majoring in biological science

2363:  Post graduate study at London University, Earth

2364:  Post graduate study at Vulcan Science Academy

2368:  Joined Klingon Defence Force, assigned IKC Death Hand

2374:  Transferred to IKC Hegh'Ta, senior science officer

2375:  Assigned as 1st officer of the USS Endeavour, field promotion to commander.

2378:  Promotion to Captain, assigned USS Endeavour

2382:  Her role as Fleet Captain is made official.

2385:  Promotion to Rear Admiral with responsibility for the Rapid Response Fleet.

Additional:

Kehlan is a member of the old and respected Klingon House of Inigan, thanks to her friendship with Christa Martinez and her marriage to James Mackenzie.


During the Dominion war she met her father and finally learned the identity of her parents although she never tried to trace the remainder of her terran family.


In 2381, Kehlan came face to face with the identical twin sister she never knew she had.  She learned that her mother, a terran woman named Marilyn Bradfield had taken her to Qo'noS to find the children's father, leaving the other twin, sick with chicken pox, at home with her grandparents.  After Marilyn's murder, the ship on which they should have returned to Earth had crashed with no survivors and believing Kehlan dead, her family had never searched for her.


Psych evaluations have revealed that Kehlan has a very unKlingon sense of mischief, although she does struggle to understand Terran humour.  It has also been noticed that she has an unreasonable fear of spiders dating back to an incident in her early childhood.


Kehlan's interests are diverse and she has a wide range of hobbies, including dancing, weapons training, mok'bara as well as less physical activities such as reading and cooking.  One of her favourite foods is Vegetarian lasagne... she claims that at least vegetables are meant to be cooked.  Inexplicably she is also addicted to pepperoni Pizza.
