The USS Franklin (NCC-246) was a United Earth starship, a Strider-class scout in Earth Starfleet service in the 22nd century.

History and specificationsEdit

This ship was in active service around the year 2159. (ST video game: Legacy)

Warning: The following content contains spoilers for Star Trek Beyond.

This vessel was one of a number of vessels named Franklin, for Benjamin Franklin, a statesman of Earth history, and various other persons and places that shared that name. Prior to this ship, the warp 4 ship USS Franklin (NX-326) had borne the name, and that same predecessor vessel was eventually adopted into Federation Starfleet service, apparently as a successor to this Franklin. (TOS movie: Beyond)

BackgroundEdit

No specific history or definitive final fate was established for this vessel as its name was selected for a ship by the Legacy game developers, and is sometimes placed randomly when the ship appears.

Warning: The following content contains spoilers for Star Trek Beyond.

This Franklin existed in Earth service by the Earth-Romulan War era, but had apparently been preceded by the warp 4 ship Franklin depited in Star Trek Beyond, since the War era was well after subsequent warp 5 ships had been built during Star Trek: Enterprise. The Star Trek Beyond ship, in the course of the film, was revealed to have been adopted into Federation Starfleet service after this Strider-class Franklin, in the 2160s decade. It is possible the previous ship had been taken out of service and then recommissioned after this one's retirement, or the two vessels had been in service concurrently. A third possibility is that the changed premise between the sources means there are alternating realities at play. Since no source explains the mechanism for any possible timeline discontinuity, this wiki does not present any such speculation.
