During the mid-2360s this science vessel had a crew complement of thirty-five, among which included Captain Chantal Zaheva, her first officer Commander Brink, and Betazoid scientific advisor Andrus Hagan.
The ship was found to be trapped in a Tyken's Rift near an uncharted binary star system. An investigation discovered all but one of the ship's crew died under circumstances of violent suicides and homicides, determined to be caused by severe REM deprivation. When last seen, the Brattain was still trapped within the rift. (TNG: "Night Terrors")

Background information Edit
The Brattain was named after physicist Walter Houser Brattain, the inventor of the transistor.  The name was mistakenly spelled "Brittain" on the studio model. (Star Trek Encyclopedia 3rd ed., p. 54) The correct spelling, "Brattain", was legible on several display graphics seen in the episode. It was also the spelling used in the script.
