The USS Protostar (NX-76884) was a 24th century Federation starship, an experimental starship in Starfleet service years before 2383. In the 2380s decade, the derelict ship was salvaged by a group of teenagers from Tars Lamora. (PRD episode: "Lost and Found")
The Protostar was given an NX registry number and equipped with the emergency training hologram (ETH), modelled after Captain Kathryn Janeway. Hologram Janeway remained within the ship's databank when it disappeared in the Delta Quadrant.
A Vau N'Akat individual known as the Diviner searched for the Protostar. It was found by two children trying to escape from the Diviner's prison colony on Tars Lamora in 2383. Dal R'El and Rok-Tahk found the ship lying in the Northwest Crevasse of the colony. During their attempt to launch it, the ship initially slipped away and fell down the crevasse.
