The USS Abraham Dannon is named for the Federation Statesman Abraham Dannon. For over 100 years no ship was named Dannon because of his controversial stand on the Romulan War. Old political foes and hawkish officers in Starfleet blocked any attempt to name a ship for him. For a while after they had died off inertia held sway.
Finally with the introduction of the Ambassador class there was planned a ship for each of the six founders. Falan declined the honor as she didn't feel it appropriate to name a ship for a living person, and one "so little involved" as she put it. However the other five revered Founders each got a namesake vessel, Abraham Dannon for the first time.
USS Abraham Dannon NCC-11000Edit
USS Abraham Dannon was an Ambassador class vessel that had been long in service. Due to the hull's relative good condition she was selected as the third and last of the Ambassador class ships to get a "Kongo" refit. The refit was done at the El Nanth Starbase and she was given to the command of Captain Liira Mary O'Keefe.
During her service in the far sector the Dannon was damaged during a rescue effort. The decision was made to replace her with a Dolphin class vessel of the same name.
The current Dannon continues to serve as the flagship of the Far sector under Rear Admiral Li'ira O'Keef and Captain Cinilan.
Dolphin class (blue Dolphin) GXC heavy cruiser. The latest and greatest of the late 24th century. The Dolphin is the first class of diSodium heavy cruisers. The Dolphins are 36 decks deep with a hull as wide as it is long. The Dannon is one of three blue Dolphins in fleet service. the others being the USS Kongo NCC-101710 and the USS Urafiki NCC-118554
The Dolphins are built with the latest advances in technology and comfort. They can carry 1000 beings in comfort to the most dangerous places in the Galaxy and bring them back. This class is considered a general replacement for the Planet class cruisers. A good idea that was simply too expensive. Also unlike the Manta class the Dolphin has the bridge on deck one. A design concession to Admiral Hailey. However the bridge module is built flush with the hull. The Dolphin is build with two major power systems. It can be built with either the DiSodium HE warp drive (Blue Dolphin), which is preferred by the Horned Fleet, or in a standard disodium system (Fleet Dolphin) favored by Starfleet. Performance curves are similar for both systems.
Shuttles: Runabout 1 "Bemus". Runabout 2 "Canace". Captain’s Yacht "Acantha" (A. Dannon's Cats at the time of the Five Powers Alliance Talks.)
