the ship - past

The first ship to bear the name Providence was a Nova-class science vessel. While giving the crew a good scientific platform, it just couldn't stand up to heavy opposition and was shot down over an alien world, crashing into the ocean below.

The second ship, a modified Excelsior-class, served as the loyal home to the Providence crew for five years. It had the perfect balance of defensive ability and scientific capability. Even so, the ship itself couldn't ignore the laws of physics and, after suffering major hull damage from the impact of enemy vessels, it was destroyed.
