"You’ll lack neither courage nor sense from this day on.” - Athena (in Homer’s The Odyssey)
In ancient Greek mythology Athena was the Olympian goddess of wisdom and good counsel, war, the defence of towns, heroic endeavour, weaving, pottery and various other crafts.
All of those things are to be expected in the stories we want to tell. (Including even the part about weaving and pottery, if you’re so inclined!)
WHO WE ARE: The USS Athena is the tip of the spear: one of Starfleet’s mighty Prometheus-class starships assigned to defend the borders and protect the innocent citizens of the Federation. We keep the peace, but stand ready for war. We stand for justice - and we have the teeth to administer it. Forming part of one of Obsidian Fleet’s finest task forces, we are steadfastly dedicated to safeguarding peace in the Alpha Quadrant.
|In the Family|
The USS Athena, complete with a fresh new command crew, has been dispatched to the remote Paratus system, escorting a Federation Ambassador to complete the final stages of the Paratans' membership in the Federation.
