USS Avenger, CA-1500 (previously, BC-1500, formerly NCC-1500) was the first of the Fearless class heavy cruisers refit into an Avenger class battle cruiser during the Borg invasion of 2402. Her original commissioning date was Star Date 240208.25. First of three, the Avenger was followed by the USS Gettysburg, BC-1863 and the USS Dauntless, BC-1553. Following the Borg invasion there were no more battle cruisers commissioned by Star Fleet.

During the shoreleave from Star Date 241303.25 through 241304.13 the USS Avenger was re-classed as the Avenger Class Heavy Cruiser from "Battle Cruiser" as part of Star Fleet's CA consolidation project. The only change to the BC classed vessels was re-designation as CA- registry numbers.

The USS Avenger, CA-1500 is part of the 4th Fleet.

Federation Space Main Timeline

In our main timeline, the NCC designation was never used, and CA-1500 was refitted into BC-1500. This was later changed back to CA-1500 as part of the heavy cruise consolidation project.

The USS Avenger was destroyed during the Borg invasion while defending Sector 001 and Star Base One. Although no battle cruiser was built to replace it, a new Fearless class cruiser was later built to replace it. This cruiser was also named Avenger, and given the registry CA-1500. This vessel was lost during the Krynar invasion.

Alternate timeline for NCC-1500

USS Avenger was one of the pivotal ships in defending the Federation against the Borg, and went on for nearly a decade of further notable service, going through several Commanding Officers (listed below) before Captain Derrick Grant was assigned as her Commanding Officer in 2408.

The USS Avenger, CA-1500 (NCC-1500) is the fourth Star Fleet vessel to bear the name Avenger.

  • indicates that this person is from the ALT universe from which the Avenger originally came.


Stardate 241204.10 A routine mission on the USS James Madison had the crew going to investigate sensor readings of a vessel that read as the USS Chin'toka's yacht that had been lost when the ship was hijaked. The yacht had been used as an escape vessel. The away team boarded the ship and disarmed several booby traps and collected valuable information. During their investigations a space-time anomaly opened and a large ship came through. Under the command of Captain Derrick Grant the Avenger was trying to confront Krynar forces around Betazed. However they encountered the RIS Shadowhawk instead, after the Shadowhawk was destroyed several shard ships showed up. In the efforts to end the Shadowhawk the Avenger ejected it's warp core and set it to detonate. Due to this detonation a black hole was formed. Sensor readings showed that the USS Copernicus, a ship that had been destroyed years earlier, was in range. The Avenger was pulled into the rift and found themselves in empty space and then pulled again by another rift to find themselves into the current universe where the USS James Madison was in the area. The Avenger was reset to ten years prior it's current age and it was basically a brand new ship. Only in a new and different universe. The ship worked together with the crew of the Madison to two the Chin'toka's yacht home to it's starbase.

Stardate 241210.01 The Avenger was escorted to the Wadi homeworld by Dominion forces. A delegation beamed down to the planet for discussions only it was later discovered that the planet and in orbit had already been taken over by the Krynar. A strange disease took over some of the crew members and replicator malfuntions occurred as well. Nothing bad enough to stop the team from getting back to the ship, though they were unable to make a deal with the Dominion. Meanwhile on the USS James Madison was on a mission headed towards the KW facility. Also experiencing replicator malfunctions and acid showers, as well as an odd virus that is zombie like in nature. The facility was found to have been taken over by Ferengi Scavengers. After a rough encounter the Madison escaped through a wormhole and reunited with the Avenger. After a quick pause at Earth for supplies and extra crew members, they headed off to the Gamma Quadrant wormhole near the former location of Bajor. The Madison took the place of the Captain's Yacht on the Avenger and both headed off to their next job. The Avenger to negoiate a treaty for Ketracel White and aid them, while the Madison was to take Ketracel White if the diplomatic part of the mission did not pan out. The meeting did not go as planned, the entire area was Krynar Enlightened and sure enough during the meeting a Krynar came into the room to take over. A fire fight ensued, lives were lost, and the Avenger left shortly after.

Stardate 241304.05 The Avenger is tasked with patroling the Tholian border, a heavily disputed but remote area. While there an old distress call was received from a Federation probe. The Avenger dispatched the Madison to check it out and retrieve the Probe. The Madison headed to Halless I to retrieve the probe however during their attempt to land the Madisons power failed and they were marooned on the planet until the Avenger could come and retrieve them. While there, they encountered heinous alien life forms, lack of power, and the destruction of their ship. Survival was not easy while they waited for the Avenger. The Avenger having lost contact with the James Madison destroyed a modified Tholian vessel and were able to locate their crew and rescue them off the planet.

Stardate 241312.01 Right after their foray with the Tholian border, the Avenger was being repaired when they responded to a priority one message from Sector 001. A Krynar Dreadnaught appeared around Earth. While the Dreadnaught retreated the Avenger joined forces to get Tellar back. The Avenger was accompanied by the Pegasus and the Aries. The Avenger suffered through a nearly forced Enlightenment and the Aries itself was destroyed. The quick thinking of the crew allowed for them to remain themselves and they were able to continue to battle even getting crew members on the ground of Tellar to fight. Winning the battle at a great loss.

Stardate 241402.15 After a brief stint on Earth, the Avenger was part of a battle force ready to end the Krynar occupation. Other ships included the Intrepid, Ticonderoga, and the Gettysburg. The ships were tasked with firing an anti-graviton at the Krynar facilities in the hopes of destroying them. After entering the system, the Avenger attempted to get itself into proper position for firing only to have the Ticonderoga fire on the ship unexpectedly damaging one of the nacelles. Captain Archer of the Intrepid acted quickly and was able to difuse the situation. Allowing the attack to continue. However, with the use of the anti-graviton weapons had the side effect of destabilizing and destroying the entire Krynar system also forcing the Federation officers to flee for their lives. During this the Ticonderoga was completely destroyed and the Avenger assisted in rescuing what crew members were left.

Stardate 241406.01 While enroute to pick up some Scientists on a mission the Commanding Officer Crawford was the victim of a vicious attack. The replicator in her Ready Room exploded and took with it the life of her unborn child and she was barely saved herself from the massive attack. The Captain was evacuated to Star Base Delta for medical treatment. During that time, the ship received a a distress signal from a planet that was thought to be uninhabited, Aoin. The crew decide to go investigate. On the planet they find a largely abandoned planet and a large city that is filled with the dead and decaying bodies that once inhabited the place. A large hospital was their first choice, because scans show that a microbe is in the area and had caused the issues. Some of the crew begin to grow effected as well, however, they cannot find much information on the planet despite their best efforts. Once the away team boarded the Voltaire again, they found themselves face to face with a being that called himself the Wanderer and would only talk through telepaths. Using the resident empath, Zephyr Praise to talk to the crew for the time being. The Wanderer went through the Avenger and did whatever he wanted, causing the crew to run around trying to stop him and getting information. They come to the realization that the Wanderer is the one that killed the entire race of people on Aoin. The Engineers worked hard to find a way to distort the quantum tunnels that made up the creature and ran it off.

Stardate 241504.15 During their much needed shore leave the Avenger was hijacked by a group of disgruntled original Avenger crew members. Using the Voltaire, the Avenger crew give chase after their ship. After a quick encounter with a young Q the Voltaire locates the Avenger hiding in a nebula attempting to remain hidden having turned off their beacon. The Voltaire crew were able to get on board the Avenger but not before the Gettysburg arrived with orders to destroy the Avenger. The Avenger and it's full escape pods were destroyed despite the Voltaire's best efforts to save her crew. The crew that captured the Avenger had gone to the Gettysburg and taken it over. The crew that was originally on the Gettysburg died and so the away team was in the Gettysburg and the others in the Voltaire. The Avenger was destroyed, and the crew was left in shock of what they had lost.
