These are the missions of the Constitution Class USS Yamato (NCC-1715) on a Five-Year Mission to explore strange new worlds, seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no one has gone before. This is the third Five Year Mission for the USS Yamato, and the previous missions have failed to last the full term. Each of the previous two ended disastrously, with catastrophic loss of crew and a complete turnover of command staff each time.
Laboring under a cursed reputation, the USS Yamato has been assigned a completely new crew with the hope that the third time's the charm for her to complete her Five Year Mission. These records of the Yamato's new mission are presented primarily through the eyes of a team of mostly new officers, fresh out of Starfleet Academy, working on the ship's Delta Shift.
