The USS Raven (NAR-32450) was an Aerie-class Federation-registered starship, which was used by Magnus and Erin Hansen for their independent and unauthorized exploration of the Delta Quadrant.


Early in the year 2354, the Hansens left Heronius II aboard the Raven, along with their five-year-old daughter, Annika. (VOY short story: "A Ribbon for Rosie")

Eight months into their journey, they found a Borg cube, and the Raven was pulled into that ship's transwarp conduit into the Delta Quadrant. The Raven continued to study of the Borg until 2356, when an ion storm damaged the vessel's shields, and they were detected by the Borg. The Hansens were assimilated, and the Raven crashed on a moon in B'omar space in the Agrat-Mot Nebula.(ST reference: Star Charts)

In 2374, the Raven's wreckage was rediscovered by Seven of Nine, who was drawn to the vessel by its unique resonance frequency. Immediately thereafter, the wreckage was destroyed by the B'omar. (VOY episodes: "The Gift", "The Raven", "Dark Frontier")

Curiously, "A Ribbon for Rosie" states the Hansens' ship did not have a name, but only the numerical designation 32450 -- which was established at the same time as the name of the ship, in "The Raven".
