Background information Edit

The authors of the Star Trek Encyclopedia (4th ed., vol. 2, p. 92) expressed their hope that the NX-class starships would continue a tradition of being named after the space shuttle orbiters. Going by this logic, the NX-03 would have been named "Challenger".

Apocrypha Edit

The Star Trek: Enterprise novels Kobayashi Maru and Beneath the Raptor's Wing depict the manufacture of this ship which is given the name Challenger. She launches in August, 2155, alongside Discovery NX-04, and is destroyed the next year when Captain Roy Dunsel (β) activates the ship's self destruct, the first one installed aboard a United Earth starship, to destroy a Romulan Warbird before it can attack Andoria.

In Star Trek Online, when purchasing an NX-class replica, the template gives it the name NX-03 Challenger.

According to Star Trek: Federation - The First 150 Years this ship was the Excalibur, commanded by Bran Stiles.
