Specifications / details
Poseidon was the most advanced Starfleet vessel before the construction of the Daedalus-class, combining the latest improvements in weapons, armor and propulsion made by the contributions of predecessors like Enterprise and Columbia. Poseidon housed pulsed phase cannon technology, an upgrade of Enterprise's phase cannons, which were first tested on Columbia.
It also had photonic torpedo launchers including the dorsal and ventral launchers that were also first implemented on Columbia. Due to improvements on the polarization system made during the war, Poseidon had a 20% increase in hull polarization strength compared to Columbia, giving it an overall 34.4% increase compared to the system that Enterprise first launched with. Poseidon was the first of a new line of NX class vessels featuring a new warp plasma system which increased warp efficiency, as well as increasing the ship's maximum warp factor to 5.5, making it the fastest ship in the fleet.
Launched in 2157 with the registry NX-07 under the command of Captain Kyle Weymark, Poseidon was one of three new-style NX classes commissioned to meet the demand of the Earth-Romulan War. Serving in many notable battles under Captain Weymark, Poseidon served with special distinction at Galorndan Core, Sector 2148 and Cheron.
In 2162, Poseidon was relaunched under the registry NCC-07 as the flagship of the Coalition of Planets. Shortly after launch, Poseidon was involved in a conspiracy with the human supremacist organization Terra Prime at the forefront of its cause. During the course of this mission, Peters lost two executive officers: Cam Barnes, who was killed by Terra Prime, and Korvid, who was killed during a battle on the bridge.
Captain Peters and his MACO contingent exposed the perpetrators of Terra Prime. Not long after, Peters promoted temporary MACO CO Chris Clow to commander and appointed him as the ship's new executive officer. Unbeknownst to the crew, the Temporal Cold War was still being waged and had suddenly become a "hot war." A species known as The Eye was doing mass amounts of damage to the timeline, which delayed the formation of the United Federation of Planets. Coming to aid Poseidon was the crew of an alternate starship Enterprise-D, that had been fighting with the species throughout the damaged time continuum.
Eventually, at the cost of their ship, the crew defeated the Eye and had realigned the timeline, allowing the Federation's founding in 2161. After the ship was destroyed, the crew went their separate ways until being called back to a new starship Poseidon a year later.
