"This is the greatest ship I've ever seen!"

The USS Vancouver (NCC-70492) was a Federation Parliament-class starship operated by Starfleet in the 24th century under the command of Captain Nguyen. It specialized in large complex engineering projects.

Among the important missions undertaken by the Vancouver crew were towing a space station, calibrating the Dyson sphere, and traveling back in time to kill a person worse than Adolf Hitler.

In 2380, the Vancouver, with assistance from the USS Cerritos, demolished the fifth moon of Mixtus III, which was threatening the inhabitants of that planet with extinction. (LD: "Cupid's Errant Arrow")

In 2381, the Cerritos was assigned to support the Vancouver during Captain Nguyen's postwar trade negotiations with the Karemma. At the last minute, the Vancouver was rerouted to the Hasparga system to evacuate a colony that was being threatened by a brown hole, forcing Cerritos Captain Carol Freeman to conduct the negotiations, without the benefit of the months of preparation time Nguyen had. (LD: "Hear All, Trust Nothing")

Later the same year, it was temporarily overtaken by Badgey after he connected his program to the Federation computer networks, and temporarily seized control of every starship, space station, and planetary system in the quadrant. (LD: "A Few Badgeys More") A short time later, the ship was tasked with retrieving the ex-Starfleet civilian Beverly Crusher. (LD: "The Inner Fight")
