Construction of the prototype vessel, the ''USS Wright (NX-97283)'', was completed in early 2390 although without a majority of the creature comforts that would later be included.  A skeleton crew made up of members from the design team, yard engineers, and flight testing personnel was assigned to the ''Wright'' with orders to begin extensive space trials.  These trials consisted of a number of tests of her handling characteristics, interior/exterior sensor capabilities, and security/tactical systems.  Upon returning to Aldani, the ''Wright'' underwent phase one assessment as engineers worked to correct those issues that had arisen during initial space trials.

On the morning of [INSERT DAY HERE], seven yard personnel were killed and twelve others injured in an explosion which occurred near Main Engineering and severely damaged several surrounding sections aboard the ''USS Wright''.  The entire Aldani system was placed on high alert even as yard personnel worked to secure the ''Wright'' and rescue trapped survivors.  A subsequent investigation revealed that an agent of the [[Zutal Imperium]] may have boarded one of the [[Federation]] starships present at the [INSERT BATTLE NAME HERE] disguised as an engineering technician.  When the allied vessels returned to Aldani for repairs, the agent managed to slip aboard the ''Wright'' and plant an organic explosive device near the engineering section.  The attack forced the [[Horizon Fleet|Eighth "Horizon" Fleet]] to re-evaluate security throughout the Aldani system.  It also resulted in significant delays for the ''Wright''-class Starship Development Project as engineers worked to repair the damage inflicted upon the prototype vessel.

On the morning of 08 March 2390, seven yard personnel were killed and twelve others injured in an explosion which occurred near Main Engineering and severely damaged several surrounding sections aboard the ''USS Wright''.  The entire Aldani system was placed on high alert even as yard personnel worked to secure the ''Wright'' and rescue trapped survivors.  A subsequent investigation revealed that an agent of the [[Zutal Imperium]] may have boarded one of the [[Federation]] starships present at the [[Battle of Nashira]] disguised as an engineering technician.  When the allied vessels returned to Aldani for repairs, the agent managed to slip aboard the ''Wright'' and plant an organic explosive device near the engineering section.  The attack forced the [[Horizon Fleet|Eighth "Horizon" Fleet]] to re-evaluate security throughout the Aldani system.  It also resulted in significant delays for the ''Wright''-class Starship Development Project as engineers worked to repair the damage inflicted upon the prototype vessel.
  
 
Repairing the damage to the ''USS Wright'' took about a month as engineering teams worked diligently to restore the affected sections.  The [[Romulan]] [[Cloaking Device]], damaged by the attack and deemed unnecessary for the starship's mission profile, was removed to make room for a secondary computer core designed specifically to manage the ship's tactical systems.  Experimental holographic computer interface terminals which had already proven themselves aboard other vessels were replaced with standard LCARS in order to increase combat processing efficiency.  The remaining creature comforts such as crew accommodations, mess hall facilities, and sickbay were completed prior to another set of controlled field tests which began in mid-2390.

Both Lieutenant Commander Nelson and Vice Admiral Tharos were extremely satisfied with the results of controlled field testing.  They submitted a joint recommendation to the [[Horizon Fleet|Eighth "Horizon" Fleet]] admiralty that the ''USS Wright'' be approved for limited active duty.  After reviewing their findings, the admiralty appointed [[Christopher Townsend|Captain Christopher Townsend]] as the vessel's Commanding Officer with orders to deploy as part of [[Carrier Group Eleven]].

Armstrong was granted permission to select the members of his Command Staff including [[Thomas Gates|Ensign Thomas Gates]] as Strategic Operations Officer and [[Charles Young|Ensign Charles Young]] as Science Officer. He officially assumed command of the vessel on 24 July 2390 with orders to deploy as part of [[Carrier Group Eleven]].
