U.S.S. Cheiron (Centaur class)
In 2380, the Centaur class Starship Cheiron was assigned to the independent world of Carrea at the request of the Carreon Science Institute, to investigate solar flares from the system's sun. Federation President Nanietta Bacco later used the Cheiron's presence at Carrea to threaten war with that world, following long and fruitless negotiations for a Carreon water reclamation system for Delta IV. The following year, the Cheiron was sent to Cestus III to assist with refugees following an apocalyptic Borg assault on the Federation.
