Decatur-class variant

The Golden Gate at Epsilon Theta.

Epsilon Theta was a star with an associated star system located in the galaxy's Beta Quadrant. This system included seven planets. (ST video game: Legacy)


In May 2159, during the Earth-Romulan War, all seven planets in the Epsilon Theta system were infected by a metagenic virus planted by the Romulans. However, they were provided with an anti-toxin by a trio of Earth Starfleet Daedalus-class medical ships. An attempt by the Romulan Imperial Fleet to stop the medical ships was thwarted by a task force of Starfleet vessels led by the NX-class cruiser Enterprise NX-01, which destroyed the Silvak Outpost that the Romulans had established in the system.

At one point in its service history, the Decatur-class USS Golden Gate spent a day in close orbit of Epsilon Theta's moon. One of the ship's physicists, Lieutenant Emery, painted a picture of the Golden Gate from a vantage point on the tiny moon. (SOTL calendar: Ships of the Line 2014 June image: "Smile")
