- The Captain's Table
During the Dominion War, Starfleet was forced to set aside exploratory missions and vessels in favor of combat missions and warships. Starships left drydock with spaceframes outfitted solely as warships of the Federation, lacking scientific facilities and exploratory capacity. However, with the end of the war, Starfleet began to return to its exploratory roots; scientific facilities were installed aboard the surviving ships that lacked them, and new starships were designed and built for exploration first and foremost. Among these was the Luna-class starship; Titan is one of the first of these new exploratory vessels and placed under the command of Captain Riker, with the initial mission of dealing with unrest in and near the Romulan Star Empire.
- All Luna-class vessels are named after moons in the Sol system (Amalthea, Callisto, Charon, Europa, Galatea, Ganymede, Io, Luna, Oberon, Rhea, Titan, and Triton).
- USS Titan
- The USS Titan (NCC-80102) is a Luna-class starship. It has a crew of 350, and is approximately 450 meters long.
- The Titan is the most varied multispecies crew in Starfleet history; less than 15% of the crew is Human. The motto of the Titan according to this series of novels is "Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations" (IDIC), a maxim often associated with Vulcan philosophy.
