The USS Crusader has served in the Federation for over 25 years. It's record is considered one of the best in a line of ships of Starfleet history. The Crusader appears in [[Star Trek Crusader]], and is under command of Captain [[Candela Greene]]. A [[Saber Class]] vessel, it was originally a scout ship. But after numerous conflicts, and refits, it has been reclassified as a Frigate Escort/Scoutship. Among it's additions include [[Quantum Torpedoes]], and [[Pulse Lasers]].

The ''Crusader'' was commissioned on September 17, [[2363]]. Captain Fred Braun Commanded her from [[2363]] to [[2369]], where she spent most of her time patrolling the [[Cardassian]] border. In [[2364]], a brief encounter with a Cardassian Cruiser in federation space was the only serious engagement she had faced in that area. She also did numerous escorts between [[Betazed]], and [[Trill]]. In [[2367]] she was to rendezvous with the {{uss|Endeavour|NCC-71805}}, and participate in the [[Battle of Wolf 359]], but due to an overload in it's phaser arrays she never made it. In 2369 Captain Braun was reassigned to the USS ''Davenport'', and Commander Jay Thomas assumed command. In [[2370]] she was stationed at Starbase 310 where she would patrol the Cardassian border. Soon after the increased activity of the Maquis would send the ''Crusader'' to patrolling all colonies for Maquis Activity. In [[2372]], the ''Crusader'' successfully captured 3 Maquis Raiders that had [[Biogenic weapon]]s that were to be used against the Cardassians.

With the Start of the [[Second Federation-Klingon War]], the ''Crusader'' would see lots of action. In early [[2373]], the ''Crusader'' was attacked by a [[Klingon Bird-of-Prey]], Commander Thomas would perish in the battle, as well as 15 other crew members. The ''Crusader'' was salvaged, and sent back to [[Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards]] for refit. Later that year, the ''Crusader'' would see more action under Command of [[Lieutenant Commander]] Karen Landry as they participated in the Defense of [[Earth]] from a [[Borg]] invasion. The ''Crusader'' was once again place in refit until [[2374]].

Landry was promoted to [[Captain]], and the ''Crusader'' was assigned to [[Starbase 375]] as the [[Dominion]] war was heating up. It took part in the [[Battle of Betazed]], and rescued 116 civilians from the planet. Later, they were also instrumental in the first battle of [[Chin'toka system]]. The ''Crusader'' would continue patrolling the [[Kalandra sector]]. The [[Breen]] would join the Cardassians, and Dominion, and retook [[Chin'toka system]]. The second battle was not as successful, and many ships were lost, the ''Crusader'' was lucky to escape, but she lost 33 crew members, as well as Captain Landry. The ''Crusader'' was repaired at [[Starbase 375]], and given to Captain Dianne Thatch. She would participate in the final battle at [[Cardassia]], and from there remain attached to [[Starbase 375]].

===Service under Captain Greene===
In 2379 the USS Crusader was damaged by a Temporal Anomaly, and was sent to Utopia Planatia for refit. In 2380 she returned to service escorting between Earth, and the [[Romulan Empire]]. In 2382 the Crusader participated in a cooperative raid on Eta Corvi where they found a Cache of [[Dominion]] weapons stocked piled by the [[Orion Syndicate]]. 2384 The Crusader was reassigned to Starbase 24 where she would patrol several sectors, as well as [[Khitomer]]. 2386 Captain Thatch is reassigned, and the Crusader is sent to Dry-dock at Utopia Planatia. Later that year, the 14th Fleet is given the USS Crusader, and assigned it to the [[Cestus System]] at [[Starbase 140]]. LtCdr [[Candela Greene]] is given command.

In late 2386 the ''Crusader'' diverted from it's assigned patrol to intercept a convoy out of Bellatrix. Using the knowledge that maybe a spy gave them their positioning, they were hoping for a Pirate attack. With [[Vanessa Lucifel|Admiral Lucifel]]s permission (Given in code), Captain Greene was ordered to bring back some evidence of Orion Syndicate involvement in these acts of piracy. It wasn't long before they were attacked by several Klingon Bird of Preys. But using their own weapons against them, they manage to capture one ship before it self destructed. Among the survivors was an [[Orion]] female named [[Nova]] that is a identical clone of Captain [[Candela Greene]]. Also they captured some of the crew, that seemed to self destruct. It was Doctor [[Elita Jurani]] that would discovered an encoded protein in their RNA that caused this.

== Under Command of Candela Greene ==
 
  +
In early [[2387]], at Starbase 140, an shockwave set off by the RNA protein that Doctor Elita Jurani discovered brought about a fleet of [[Zentradi]] ships to Starbase 140. The ''Crusader'' assisted in defending the Starbase. The ''Crusader'' would come in direct contact with no other then [[Juraan]] at the Ramun System. The ship is overwhelmed by the new Pirate cruisers that overpower the ''Crusader'', and plant a bomb on her. Luckily the bomb is dis armed as the {{uss|Federation|NCC-73838}} comes to the rescue. The ''Crusader'' is repaired, and thrown back into the fray as it heads for the [[Denias System]] in search of the lost USS ''Fuller''. There they find signs of battle and 2 more derelict ships, the IKV ''O'Klath'', and the USS ''Nepal'', as well as the ''Fuller''. Amazingly no one on any of the ships except 2 dead bodies on the ''Nepal''. That is when it is discovered that their reproductive organs were removed. After finding the fuller heavily damaged, they picked up the signatures of the 3 missing freighter around Denias VIII. Upon finding them, the ''Crusader'' was attacked with Plasma weapons. Captain Greene fearing this was all a trap, using the same temporal weapons they recovered earlier destroyed the three drones in one shot. Over 1,100 survivors were found on an orbital facility at Denias VIII, and apparently the attack brought time for the Zentradi, and pirates to escape.

The ''Crusader'' was assisting the {{uss|Avenger|NCC-75461}}, and the USS ''Drake'' in the [[Alpha Quadrant]], and turned into pawns in a mind game played out by the [[Talosian]]s. Juraan, and the Zentradi arranged for them to abduct the Captain, and [[Lieutenant]] [[D'Real]]. Under command of Commander [[Teshurr]] they would make it back to the [[Talos star group]] to rescue the Captain, and Lieutenant. The actions of the Commander, and fear that the Captain was compromised, [[Rear Admiral]] [[Maxwell Gunn]] stripped them of Command, not knowing in actuality that Captain Greene was replaced by her clone [[Nova]]. Lt Cmdr [[Juliet James]] would command the ''Crusader'' for 2 months before she was recalled for refit. Over that time, Captain Greene was rescued, as well as Commander Teshurr, and Lt [[Eric Kramer]] in a plot to leave them stranded on [[Ceti Alpha V]].

The USS Crusader has served in the Federation for over 25 years. It's record is considered one of the best in a line of ships of Starfleet history. The Crusader appears in Star Trek Crusader, and is under command of Captain Candela Greene. A Saber-class vessel, it was originally a scout ship. But after numerous conflicts, and refits, it has been reclassified as a Light Cruiser. Among it's additions include Quantum Torpedoes, and Pulse phaser canons.(Star Trek Crusader, Star Trek: Generation Fleet Forum)

History[edit | edit source]

The Crusader was commissioned on September 17, 2363. Captain Fred Braun Commanded her from 2363 to 2369, where she spent most of her time patrolling the Cardassian border. In 2364, a brief encounter with a Cardassian Cruiser in federation space was the only serious engagement she had faced in that area. She also did numerous escorts between Betazed, and Trill. In 2367 she was to rendezvous with the USS Endeavour, and participate in the Battle of Wolf 359, but due to an overload in it's phaser arrays she never made it. In 2369 Captain Braun was reassigned to the USS Davenport, and Commander Jay Thomas assumed command. In 2370 she was stationed at Starbase 310 where she would patrol the Cardassian border. Soon after the increased activity of the Maquis would send the Crusader to patrolling all colonies for Maquis Activity. In 2372, the Crusader successfully captured 3 Maquis Raiders that had Biogenic weapons that were to be used against the Cardassians.

With the Start of the Second Federation-Klingon War, the Crusader would see lots of action. In early 2373, the Crusader was attacked by a Klingon Bird-of-Prey, Commander Thomas would perish in the battle, as well as 15 other crew members. The Crusader was salvaged, and sent back to Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards for refit. Later that year, the Crusader would see more action under Command of Lieutenant Commander Karen Landry as they participated in the Defense of Earth from a Borg invasion. The Crusader was once again place in refit until 2374.

Landry was promoted to Captain, and the Crusader was assigned to Starbase 375 as the Dominion war was heating up. It took part in the Battle of Betazed, and rescued 116 civilians from the planet. Later, they were also instrumental in the first battle of Chin'toka system. The Crusader would continue patrolling the Kalandra sector. The Breen would join the Cardassians, and Dominion, and retook Chin'toka system. The second battle was not as successful, and many ships were lost, the Crusader was lucky to escape, but she lost 33 crew members, as well as Captain Landry. The Crusader was repaired at Starbase 375, and given to Captain Dianne Thatch. She would participate in the final battle at Cardassia, and from there remain attached to Starbase 375.

In 2379 the Crusader was damaged by a Temporal Anomaly, and was sent to Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards for refit. In 2380 she returned to service escorting between Earth, and the Romulan Empire. In 2382 the Crusader participated in a cooperative raid on Eta Corvi where they found a Cache of Dominion weapons stocked piled by the Orion Syndicate. 2384 The Crusader was reassigned to Starbase 24 where she would patrol several sectors, as well as Khitomer. 2386 Captain Thatch is reassigned, and the Crusader is sent to Dry-dock at Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards. Later that year, the 14th Fleet is given the Crusader, and assigned it to the Cestus system at Starbase 140. Lieutenant Commander Candela Greene is given command.

Service under Captain Greene[edit | edit source]

In late 2386 the Crusader diverted from it's assigned patrol to intercept a convoy out of Bellatrix. Using the knowledge that maybe a spy gave them their positioning, they were hoping for a Pirate attack. With Admiral Lucifels permission (Given in code), Captain Greene was ordered to bring back some evidence of Orion Syndicate involvement in these acts of piracy. It wasn't long before they were attacked by several Klingon Bird of Preys. But using their own weapons against them, they manage to capture one ship before it self destructed. Among the survivors was an Orion female named Nova that is a identical clone of Captain Candela Greene. Also they captured some of the crew, that seemed to self destruct. It was Doctor Elita Jurani that would discovered an encoded protein in their RNA that caused this.

Battle at Denias

In early 2387, at Starbase 140, an shockwave set off by the RNA protein that Doctor Elita Jurani discovered brought about a fleet of Zentradi ships to Starbase 140. The Crusader assisted in defending the Starbase. The Crusader would come in direct contact with no other then Juraan at the Ramun System. The ship is overwhelmed by the new Pirate cruisers that overpower the Crusader, and plant a bomb on her. Luckily the bomb is dis armed as the USS Federation comes to the rescue. The Crusader is repaired, and thrown back into the fray as it heads for the Denias System in search of the lost USS Fuller. There they find signs of battle and 2 more derelict ships, the IKV O'Klath, and the USS Nepal, as well as the Fuller. Amazingly no one on any of the ships except 2 dead bodies on the Nepal. That is when it is discovered that their reproductive organs were removed. After finding the fuller heavily damaged, they picked up the signatures of the 3 missing freighter around Denias VIII. Upon finding them, the Crusader was attacked with Plasma weapons. Captain Greene fearing this was all a trap, using the same temporal weapons they recovered earlier destroyed the three drones in one shot. Over 1,100 survivors were found on an orbital facility at Denias VIII, and apparently the attack brought time for the Zentradi, and pirates to escape.

Crusader undergoing refit

The Crusader was assisting the USS Avenger, and the USS Drake in the Alpha Quadrant, and turned into pawns in a mind game played out by the Talosians. Juraan, and the Zentradi arranged for them to abduct the Captain, and Lieutenant D'Real. Under command of Commander Teshurr they would make it back to the Talos star group to rescue the Captain, and Lieutenant. The actions of the Commander, and fear that the Captain was compromised, Rear Admiral Maxwell Gunn stripped them of Command, not knowing in actuality that Captain Greene was replaced by her clone Nova. Lt Cmdr Juliet James would command the Crusader for 2 months before she was recalled for refit. Over that time, Captain Greene was rescued, as well as Commander Teshurr, and Lt Eric Kramer in a plot to leave them stranded on Ceti Alpha V.
