The USS Cadecus, designed in a time of war to bring a measure of peace to those most in need.

 

She is a hospital cruiser and Diplomatic vessel capable of deploying in a moments notice. Her immediate mission is to bring medical specialists and supplies.  The USS Cadecus is capable of carrying medical supplies to distant colonies, running as a combat support hospital for Ships under fire, while at the same time running field triage units on the ground.

With the addition of the marine Pararescue team, The Cad is able to extract wounded personnel from the enemies grasp.
 

Among her other Duties the crew is also well versed on bringing humanitarian aid and support to either a ship in distress or an entire planet in need.  With a full compliment of Medical crew with multiple specialties as well as a diplomatic envoy, The Cadecus can also assist in First Contact situations.

 

 

And while the Cadecus is a medical ship  she is fitted with a variety of weapons that allow her to defend herself againt the enemy should the need arise. 

The first USS Cadecus was a protoype vessel, designed to separate into sections for various functions. However, it soon became apparent that this made the ship too vulnerable and the ship was redesigned.  A new and modern vessel had been designed to allow a smaller Medical ship to separate from the Main Hull to provide a complete medical facility without losing valuable time in construction of triage and treatment areas in medical emergencies.

 

Her Crew is skilled in helping in all aspects of humaintarian aid,  from simple sulpplies  to a complex repairs of a planets infrasturcture. Science and engineering teams are as important as the Medical Crews.

 

USS Cadecus HISTORY:

 

The USS Cadecus was Launched on stardate 43327.2 from the Garinol V Shipyards after being refitted, redesigned and repurposed  under the command of Captain Alistair Barnett.

Her first Mission brought her to Selik III to quell the invasion of the neighboring Cardassians and care for the wounded both Allies and Enemies. A secondary mission to gain information from the Cardassian plans was also initiated, but the Attack on the Hosiptal Domes brought that to an end as the Cadecus realized they would soon be seriously out gunned, they Evacuated the Settlement and left the system, taking 3 Cardassian prisoners with them for further Questioning  by Starfleet's Intelligence Division.
