U.S.S. Challenger NCC-1714 (alternate reality)[edit | edit source]

U.S.S. Challenger from the Kelvin Timeline.

The U.S.S. Challenger, registry NCC-1714, was a Constitution-class starship (alternate reality) under command of Commodore Janok.

According to the Prime timeline, this vessel never existed. It was acquired from the Kelvin Timeline during the Temporal Cold War and heavily upgraded by an unknown belligerent. Commodore Janok was momentarily in command of this vessel until the conclusion of the Temporal Cold War, where he was returned to the Providence moments before its destruction over Earth.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Challenger canonically appeared in the Star Trek: Voyager episodes "Timeless" and "Endgame".
  • Although the typical colloquial designation for the Challenger's successor is "U.S.S. Challenger-A", informally the ship is given the Roman numeral "II" to distinguish it from its original counterpart. This is repeated with the Challenger III.
  • After the destruction of the Challenger II, Janok took command of the U.S.S. Providence, a Sovereign-class Fleet Assault Cruiser, as his flagship.
  • The Challenger III is the replacement for the U.S.S. Invicta Gerulus as Janok's primary teamhealer vessel.
