USS Tarawa (NCC-82143)
|Commanding Officer:||Captain Patrick R. Mathis|
|Division:||Corps of Engineers|
|Home Port:||Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards|
USS Tarawa NCC-82143 is a modified Sovereign-class heavy battlecruiser, refitted explicitly to serve as a Fleet Flagship. Deck Two was re-purposed to hold an office, personal quarters, briefing room and docking port expressly for the Flag Officer and his or her staff. In addition, Deck Twelve features a CIC (Command Information Center) which is designed to house and play host to Fleet Operations personnel as they carry out battle orders and assignments. From the CIC, whole fleet strategies and tactics can be played out over the consoles and are designated to communicate with each Task Force assigned to the fleet. As of Stardate 106927.73, the Tarawa has been the assigned flagship of the Starfleet Corps of Engineers and is currently under the command of Captain Patrick R. Mathis.
The Tarawa was launched from the Geordi La Forge Memorial Shipyards on Stardate 52190 (March 11, 2374). In addition to regular Fleet Operations service, the battlecruiser has served for more than 10 years (2386-2396, 2404-) as the flagship for Admiral Corion Rel.
