The USS Coral Sea (NCC-73528) is a Hastings-class starship commissioned on 25 April 2382 under the command of Captain Robert Lawrence. She is the fourth starship to bear the name, though the four ships were not named after each other, but rather the World War II battle of Earth's mid-twentieth century and as such do not share a registry number. The ship was the second of its class to be constructed and was assigned to the Eighth "Horizon" Fleet in 2389 at the request of Vice Admiral Iluvar, currently serving as the admiral's flagship.


Vessel History

Construction at Utopia Planetia Fleet Yards

Starfleet Command initially requisitioned eight Hastings-class starships to be constructed by three of the Federation's most prominent shipyard facilities: the Utopia Planetia Fleet Yards, the Beta Antares Fleet Yards, and the San Francisco Fleet Yards. Lieutenant Commander Jason Richardson, a skilled starship design engineer and son of noted Academy Instructor Commander Arthur Richardson, PhD, was chosen to oversee construction of the USS Coral Sea (NCC-73528) which began taking place at the Utopia Planetia Fleet Yards. The Coral Sea's hull was laid down on 21 July 2380 and the entire vessel was expected to take about eighteen months to build.

Richardson led his yard teams to incorporate new methods and advances learned from experiences during the building of the first Hastings-class starship as well as those engineers who served aboard similar vessels already in the field. By the following February, the USS Coral Sea successfully completed her first warp stress tests under computer control and escorted by the USS Orion. The results proved so successful they exceeded the expectations of yard supervisors and construction continued at a steady pace.

The later phases of construction proceeded without incident throughout the remainder of 2381 as yard crews continued working to prepare for space trials scheduled to take place in January 2382. Coral Sea's space trials began at oh-nine-hundred on 4 January 2382 at the Sector 001 Flight Test Range. These trials consisted of a number of tests of her handling characteristics, interior/exterior sensor capabilities, security/tactical systems, and embarked craft support systems. Upon returning to the Utopia Planetia Fleet Yards at about twenty-one-hundred hours, the surveyor officially declared the ship spaceworthy. It was around this time Starfleet Command officially tapped newly promoted Captain Robert Lawrence as the most likely candidate to receive command of the newest Hastings-class starship. Captain Lawrence began the process of reviewing potential candidates for senior staff positions while communicating with Lieutenant Commander Richardson regarding the Coral Sea's progress.

Starfleet officially commissioned the USS Coral Sea (NCC-73528) on 25 April 2382 whereupon she set out for the Bajor Sector near the Cardassian border. Her initial shakedown cruise followed a carefully planned route observed by the Starfleet Corps of Engineers so as to ascertain the vessel's performance under more realistic operating conditions. The Coral Sea arrived at Deep Space Nine on 2 June 2382 to take on final crew and supplies.
