The USS Lancelot,[1] NCC-74670, was a chat-based Star Trek role-play that served in the Star Trek Sims club. The role-play was active from 1994 to 2001.

Ship description

The USS Lancelot was a Lancelot Class Federation Starship. The ship was constructed around the frame of an Intrepid-class starship and modified to accommodate a third warp nacelle and a phaser cannon. Designed with combat in mind and classified as a heavy destroyer, the Lancelot nevertheless carried out an array of scientific and humanitarian missions during its career.

The ship's motto was a quote from Ovid, "Fortune and love befriend the bold."

Role-play history

The Lancelot was developed by Beaufort N'fo. The ship made its first appearance in 1993 during a weekly fleet action role-play run by Warin Trekker. In December, Trekker gave N'fo permission to spin the Lancelot off as a separate role-play. The Lancelot held its first formal role-play in January 1994.

A chat role-play, the Lancelot met every Wednesday night from 8 to 9pm eastern in the America Online private room "Wolf359."
