The USS Quirinal (NCC-82610) was a Federation Vesta-class starship, in Starfleet service in the late 24th century. (VOY novel: Children of the Storm)

History[edit | edit source]

In the year 2381, the Quirinal was fitted with a quantum slipstream drive and assigned to Project Full Circle, under the command of Captain Regina Farkas, as part of the fleet tasked with exploration of the Delta Quadrant. The crew complement at the time was 681. (VOY novels: Full Circle, Children of the Storm)

The Quirinal, along with the USS Planck and USS Demeter were a part of a fleet to make contact with the Children of the Storm. During the battle that ensued, Quirinal attempted a slipstream jump to escape, resulting in a crash landing on another planet. The 618 survivors were located by the USS Voyager nearly two weeks later. The USS Achilles was sent to repair Quirinal while the USS Galen took on the survivors of the crew. The Quirinal was able to capture 10 of the Children in a cargo bay before they escaped the battle; they were enclosed in an undamaged cargo bay and given the highest priority for power reserves by the surviving crew, as their detonation would have destroyed the shipwreck and killed the crew.

B'Elanna Torres indicated that the Achilles had the capabilities to produce the parts and manpower to repair and relaunch the ship, but she doubted that they would be successful in restoring the ship to flight, let alone restoring it to slipstream capability. Despite her objections, Fleet Commander Afsarah Eden instructed Torres that the ship would be repaired no matter the cost. The Quirinal was successfully repaired and relaunched after an aggressive and highly coordinated repair effort by B'Elanna Torres and the crew of the Achilles. (VOY novel: Children of the Storm)

Destiny timeline[edit | edit source]

In September 2381, the Quirinal, along with the USS Curie, USS Esquiline and USS Hawking, became partially embedded in a fragment of the Omega Continuum. The crew on the normal-space side of the fracture were beamed to safety aboard the Achilles and returned to the Alpha Quadrant. Those crew on the Omega Continuum side of the vessel, under the command of Ensign Sadie Johns, destroyed the ship and themselves in the hopes of restoring space to its normal state. (VOY novel: The Eternal Tide)

Following the Undine attack on the Sol system in 2410, the Quirinal was docked inside Earth Spacedock. It later left, and its docking slot was taken up by the USS Tempest. (ST video game: Star Trek Online [Season 9])

In Star Trek Online the Quirinal was present at Earth Spacedock from the Season 9 launch date, 22 April 2014, until the release of the Tempest-class Patrol Escort Refit on 8 May, whereupon the USS Tempest replaced it in ESD to advertise the new ship. The Quirinal's name and registry number were not present on its model, but were provided by a graphic in Fleet Admiral Jorel Quinn's office, which was likewise updated.
