Originally designated as the USS Eclipse, a Sovereign class, the name was changed after the Federation council went on a spree to retrofit all the aging Sovereign class ships. This version was designed to be a larger compliment to the USS Prometheus. It was upgraded from 2 to 4 nacelles and equipped with the latest stealth technologies, including masked warp signatures, a lowered sensor detection area, covert impulse drives and weapons. In comparison to the original Sovereign, she was faster, more manuverable, and was able to separate into 3 separate ships all capable of warp. Due to the enormous price tag for the stealth technologies, she was unable to have her armor or shields upgraded, and this would lead to her destruction just a year after her retrofit. She was discovered beforming a black ops mission deep inside Romulan territory and was engaged by 5 warbirds. With only covert versions of conventional weapons and no ablative armor, CAPT Douglas was forced to MVAM separate the ship. The 2 stardrive sections were confirmed destroyed but the bridge section mysteriously "dissappeared." They have not been seen since and were assumed destroyed also??
