Name as the famous philosopher Rene Descartes, the USS Descartes is on an exploration mission in Sector 000A.
During the El' Dorain Combine Conflict of 2387, the USS Descartes saw service at the Battle of Excalibur, assigned as part of 'Epsilon' Squadron, which was heavily damaged, its 'partner' vessel the USS Kenya (NPC Ship) destroyed, with the Descartes herself badly damaged, the Port Nacelle being shorn from the ship's hull.
Repaired and refitted, she was put back out into space in the December of the same year, and began to patrol regions near the Emerald Expanse.
