The USS Drake (NCC-20381) was a Federation Wambundu-class light cruiser in service to Starfleet in the 24th century. Like many large Starfleet vessels of the time, it was equipped with a holodeck and tractor beam. (ST reference: The Star Trek Encyclopedia; CCG set: All Good Things)
History and specifications
In the year 2364, Commander William T. Riker was offered command of the Drake, but he turned the offer down, instead becoming first officer aboard the USS Enterprise-D. Instead of Riker, command was assigned to Captain Paul Rice.
A few months later, the Drake was assigned to a routine exploratory mission in and around the Lorenze Cluster. The Drake entered orbit of the planet Minos, and was subsequently destroyed by the automated weapons system known as the Echo Papa 607. (TNG episode: "The Arsenal of Freedom")
On stardate 41798.2, the Enterprise visited Minos while searching for the Drake. During this mission, the Enterprise crew uncovered the answers regarding the Drake's disappearance. (Last Unicorn RPG module: Planetary Adventures)
