USS Golden Gate NCC-2562

San Francisco Task Force

The Athabaska Exploratory Cruiser, USS Golden Gate NCC-2562, is a highly versatile starship that can perform multiple tasks simultaneously. Its capabilities range from conducting exploratory missions to carrying out First Contact operations and maintaining peacekeeping efforts. The vessel is also well-suited for scientific research, border patrol, and defense operations.

Despite its classification as an Explorer, the USS Golden Gate has the capacity to undertake extended long-range missions. Its defenses are robust, as the unpredictability of space exploration and diplomacy may require immediate responses to unexpected situations.
