USS Serenity NCC-72694
The Serenity was the fourth ship in the history of the Virtual Game. A Nova-class vessel, it was introduced to facilitate a wider variety of missions, and to handle more scientific and diplomatic missions, allowing its sister ship the USS Columbia to focus on more "action" heavy missions.
The Nova-class vessel was the first to bear the name Serenity and the direct inspiration for the subsequent ships in its line represented in the Elite Force maps Serenity-A and Serenity-B, the latter of which became the definitive roleplaying map for ERP and other groups for several years.

The Serenity was manned by a total of 80 personnel, including Starfleet crew and some civilian staff.
As part of the Virtual Game experience, participants could choose their character's skills, expanding and improving them with each completed mission. Skills typically aligned with the ship's departments, such as Command or Engineering. While these skills had little effect on the missions, it helped players define and build their character's personality and traits.
Over its life, the ship's crew changed slightly as people joined and departed. Represented below is the crew manifest during its last mission. Non-player characters (NPCs) are displayed in grey.
