This is part of a series that will present the registry numbers and names (and ship pennants) of notable Starfleet Vessels throughout the Star Trek franchise, starting at the beginning.
In the universe of Star Trek, there is an parallel, yet alternate dimension where a powerful and ruthless Terran Empire rules over enslaved races such as Vulcans, Tellarites, and Andorians. The most notable ship in the Empire’s early days was the NX-01 I.S.S. Enterprise, under the command of Captain Maxwell Forrest with Commander Jonathan Archer as his First Officer. In addition, the ship’s Chief Medical Officer, Phlox, develops a new booth based torture device that adapts to a subject’s growing tolerance for pain.
