The USS Thames (NCC-80629) is a 24th century Federation Norway-class starship operated by Starfleet. It is assigned to the Eleventh Fleet with a mission to protect Federation interests, to help those in need, and to deepen Starfleet's understanding of the region known as Galactic South. The Thames is currently under the command of Captain Cassius Whittemore.


Construction and Launch

The Thames was built at New Aberdeen Shipyards in the Aldebaran system as part of Starfleet's continued effort to update and diversify its resources. It was one of two Norway-class vessels being built at the time with construction overseen by Lieutenant Commander Nedria Prol. Continued advances in warp-field generation, power distribution efficiency, as well as other design elements from analysis of the USS Voyager's sojourn in the Delta Quadrant were incorporated into the development process.

In the year 2388, the Thames was launched from the New Aberdeen Shipyards. Final systems completion and shakedown was conducted before command of the ship was turned over to Captain Vandal sh'Raazni.

Commanding Officers

Commander Cassius Whittemore, Commanding Officer of the Thames
Captain Vandal sh'Raazni became the Thames' first Commanding Officer upon the vessel's completion. An accomplished strategist, sh'Raazni could quickly assess any situation and determine an appropriate course of action. She played an important role in leading her crew through the Sojourner Crisis as well as the non-combat operations that followed. This did not go unnoticed. After overseeing two tours of duty between 2388 and 2392, sh'Raazni was given command of the Prometheus-class USS Pallas.

Captain Cassius Whittemore is only the second individual to have served as Commanding Officer of the Thames. He was appointed as part of the transitional period following the reassignment of Captain sh'Raazni. Despite having been temporally displaced from the 23rd century, Starfleet felt Whittemore's dedication to communication and understanding before resorting to unnecessary force made him an ideal candidate for the position. He underwent a complete debriefing and re-acclimation program, was certified for active duty, and officially assumed command in late 2392.
