Prime Timeline
(The root of all realities)

The Federation Starship Essex, a Daedalus class vessel commanded by Captain Bryce Shumar and first officer Commander Steven Mullen, was under the sector command of Admiral Uttan Narsu of Starbase 12. In 2167, the Essex was reported lost. The Essex was caught in an electromagnetic storm in the atmosphere of a Class M moon of planet Mab-Bu IV. The storm was caused by noncorporeal criminal life forms from the Ux-Mal system who had hoped to escape aboard the Essex, but the ship was destroyed and all 229 crew members were killed. In 2368, the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D encountered beings who claimed to be members of the Essex crew, marooned and rendered noncorporeal since 2167. These beings were, in fact, the Ux-Mal criminals, who sought to escape by commandeering the Enterprise.[1]
