USS Charybdis was a Federation starship, a Columbia-class vessel in service to the UESPA branch of Starfleet in the 2160s decade. With the USS Ares, Charybdis formed the third pair of starships built to Columbia-class specifications from scratch. (ENT - Rise of the Federation novel: Live by the Code)

History and specifications[]

Charybdis was constructed under the supervision of Admiral Alexis Osman of the Alpha Centauri Space Research Council, and Captain W. M. Jefferies of the Starfleet Corps of Engineers as part of a new wave of Columbia-class starships. Grennex Aerospace, a Rigelian shipbuilding firm, had been contracted to provide upgraded impulse engine assemblies and navigational deflector arrays for the new Columbia-class ships.

On July 8, 2165, Captain Marcus Williams conveyed Admiral Osman's progress report to UESPA chief of staff Admiral Jonathan Archer. The report indicated that Ares and Charybdis would be ready to launch in spring 2166. (ENT - Rise of the Federation novel: Live by the Code)
