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".
She was launched in August, 2155, alongside Discovery NX-04, and was destroyed the next year when Captain Roy Dunsel (β) activated the ship's self destruct, the first one installed aboard a United Earth starship, to destroy a Romulan Warbird before it could attack Andoria.
