|Star Trek: Messenger|
Star Trek: Messenger is a fan fiction series in the Legendary Universe. The series began on an Intrepid-class vessel before the name was passed to a Steamrunner-class ship. The series is based mainly in the post-Dominion War period of the late 24th century. Initially intended to be the author's primary series, other ideas eventually relegated this crew to "guest star" status.
The first USS Messenger was in service between 2374 and 2378. The ship had to be scuttled after it was found to have been compromised by shiprot. The second Messenger entered service just two weeks later, on August 31, 2378.
