The U.S.S. Baton Rouge (NCC-75000) is the main setting of Callin’ Baton Rouge, a fanfiction story written by Little_kingsfan2005.

History Edit

The Baton Rouge is a Federation Cheyenne-class light cruiser attached to Starfleet’s 1st Fleet, stationed at Federation Starbase Proxima in the Alpha Centauri sector. It has multiple responsibilities, including patrolling the Federation’s core boundaries, charting local spatial anomalies, ferrying ambassadors and dignitaries within its patrol route, and more.

The Baton Rouge saw combat during the Dominion War and was on standby during the Borg Invasion of 2381 equidistant between the Earth and Alpha Centauri sectors, should the Borg make it to either location.

The Baton Rouge was the first ship to respond when a warship from an alternate timeline, the E.F.S. Illustrious under the command of Princeps Senior Jean-Luc Picard, entered their area of operations. The Baton Rouge was no match for the Illustrious, and they were quickly disabled. Illustrious was ultimately driven back to their universe by most of the entire 1st Fleet, along with the Enterprise-E.

Although not as well-known by the general public as the U.S.S. Enterprise, the Hood, the Defiant, the Excalibur, or Voyager, the Baton Rouge is a popular posting within Starfleet, particularly with married crewmembers with families that don’t want to (or can’t for operational reasons) reside on a starship, due to it’s homebase and closeness to the five core Federation member worlds.

Crew manifest Edit

The Baton Rouge has a crew compliment of approximately 200 (a Cheyenne-class starship usually has a crew of 225, but due to personnel shortages throughout the entire Fleet, it is slightly understaffed), divided into multiple departments. Each department is headed by a senior officer holding at least the rank of Lieutenant, with a small number of officers supporting them. Each department also has either a Chief Petty Officer or Petty Officer 1st Class, who supervises the remainder of the department, consisting of enlisted personnel.

On the Baton Rouge, junior officers and enlisted personnel tend to serve six months to a year on board before transferring to another post; in contrast, many of the ship’s department heads and chiefs stay put for approximately three years.

Officers of the watch Edit

The senior staff cannot be on duty every minute of every day. They have meetings to attend, away missions to embark on, and at least an entire shift (more or less) for rest and relaxation – not to mention they might need to go to the head. Therefore, it falls to the officers of the watch to run the bridge while the senior staff is otherwise occupied.

The officer of the watch is always a commissioned officer (not even the COB, the ship’s senior-most enlisted crewman, is rated for watch duty), and is usually a junior officer who is looking for either command experience or cross-specialized training or both. On the Baton Rouge, many of the ship’s commissioned officers have taken at least one shift as a bridge officer of the watch. There is also an officer of the watch in Main Engineering when the Chief Engineer isn't available.

Flight control personnel Edit

The flight control personnel of the Baton Rouge are responsible not just for piloting the ship itself, but also maintaining the ship’s navigation logs, plotting courses, and mapping the terrain. In addition, they are responsible for the ship’s three shuttlecrafts as well as the escape pods.
