The USS Protostar (NX-76884) was a 24th century Federation starship, an experimental starship in Starfleet service years before 2383. In the 2380s decade, the derelict ship was salvaged by a group of teenagers from Tars Lamora. (PRD episode: "Lost and Found")

Service history[]

Early service and loss[]


Captain Chakotay

The Protostar was given an NX registry number and equipped with the emergency training hologram (ETH), modelled after Captain Kathryn Janeway. Hologram Janeway remained within the ship's databank when it disappeared in the Delta Quadrant. (PRD episode: "Lost and Found")

The ship's first crew was led by Captain Chakotay. The vessel encountered an anomaly and was boarded. Captain Chakotay issued a distress call. (PRD episode: "Kobayashi")

Drednok, future henchman of the Diviner, gained access to the bridge during the boarding action. (PRD episode: "First Con-tact")

The Protostar travelled into the past and arrived in the year 2366. The Diviner, operating from Tars Lamora, cloned himself to continue the search for the Protostar. His offspring became Gwyndala. (PRD episode: "Kobayashi")

Recovery and further service[]

The Vau N'Akat individual known as the Diviner searched for the Protostar. It was found by two children trying to escape from the Diviner's prison colony on Tars Lamora in 2383. Dal R'El and Rok-Tahk found the ship lying in the Northwest Crevasse of the colony. During their attempt to launch it, the ship initially slipped away and fell down the crevasse.

Together with their prisoner, the Diviner's daughter Gwyn, Dal, Rok-Tahk and other prisoners escaped with the Protostar from Tars Lamora. While celebrating their escape, they accidentally reactivated the Janeway hologram (PRD episode: "Lost and Found")

Identified as Starfleet Academy cadets by Hologram Janeway, the crew was directed by the ETH to explore a class M planet in the Hirogen system. (PRD episode: "Dream Catcher")

They escaped being caught by the Diviner and his ship, the REV-12, when Gwyn formally switched sides and activated the protostar engine. (PRD episode: "Terror Firma")

With this engine, the Protostar traversed 4000 lightyears towards the Gamma Quadrant. They encountered DaiMon Nandi of the Damsel, who conned the crew and alerted the Diviner to their new location. (PRD episode: "First Con-tact")

Soon after, the Protostar became trapped in a tachyon storm, which caused time to flow at different speeds for the crew. The designated security officer Rok-Tahk spent a long time living alone on the ship, and studied the relevant science that helped pull the Protostar out of danger. Meanwhile, the Diviner had a copy of Drednok, Dred 2, assemble himself in the ship's vehicle replicator. (PRD episode: "Time Amok")

On stardate 61174.9, Dal and Gwyn encountered Drednok 2 on Orisi. After he beamed away, the Protostar set course for Mirios. (PRD video game: Supernova)
