USS Shadow History

USS Shadow III (SP-102)

USS Shadow III (SP-102) was an armed motorboat that served in the United States Navy as a patrol vessel from 1917 to 1919. Shadow III was built as a civilian motorboat in 1916 by the Purdy Boat Company, at Miami, Florida. The U.S. Navy purchased Shadow III from Purdy on 12 June 1917 for use as a patrol boat during World War I. She was Ship commissioning on 4 September 1917 as USS Shadow III (SP-102) with Ensign (rank) Charles D. Mack, USNRF, in command.

Shadow III patrolled the Florida coast off Miami during World War I. After the war, she acted as an aircraft crash boat for Naval Air Station Miami, Florida.

Shadow III was Ship decommissioning at Miami on 25 January 1919. The Navy delivered her to the Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island at Parris Island, South Carolina, South Carolina, on 1 August 1919 for further non-commissiomned service. In December 1919, Shadow III was taken to the Charleston Navy Yard at Charleston, South Carolina, for survey. She was sold on 5 August 1921 to Mike Letiff of Charleston.

Previous Ship's Named USS Shadow

The construction of the USS Shadow, began in the mid-late 24th Century. Originally planned to be an Akira class cruiser, this ship was then made a Sovereign. The reason for this was that with the Dominion War finally being over, Federation resources started to replenish. Also, originally to be named the USS Fortitude, the ship became instead the USS Shadow after Captain Perrusio took command.

Shortly after, the USS Shadow NCC-51585-A, in her actual incarnation as an Intrepid class ship was commissioned, after the premature destruction of the original one. The USS Shadow was then transferred to the 4th Fleet and assigned to Task Force 38. It was there that Perrusio received his promotion to Commodore and would take position as Task Group Commanding Officer for Task Group Alpha.

After Commodore Perrusio retired, taking his place was R'alka Grenn, who served at the time as ship's Executive Officer. Grenn would bring a great deal of prosperity to the Shadow, and held the position for some time. Due to outside circumstances, however, Commodore Grenn was also forced into retirement.

The next Commanding Officer of the Shadow would come after Lieutenant Commander Jonathan Sumpter, long-time member and Grenn's Executive Officer, he took command for the late Commodore. Under his command the Shadow saw a rise in the ranks under the now promoted Commodore Sumpter to Task Force Second Executive Flagship.


Commodore Jonathan Sumpter is finally re-united with the USS Shadow and his crew after some time away on a short classified Intelligence operation. During his absence the Shadow's crew was temporarily assigned to the USS Maelstrom and ordered to deliver a Dominion Founder that was held as a prisoner of war back to Dominion space. Upon arrival and rendezvous with two Dominion warships the Founder was found dead. Commander Sorenson was taken prisoner due to the murder occurring under her command. Upon re-uniting with Commodore Sumpter the crew returns to the new Kelvin-refit Shadow. Intent on rescuing his first officer, the ship jumps to the Gamma Quadrant and moves forward in an unauthorized,half-baked rescue mission.

Commodore Jonathan Sumpter goes into a blackout radio silence and defies orders and goes on that rescue mission but in the mean time he was selected to become the new Chief of Staff of Task Force 38. Seeing that most of the Task Force was in the Alpha and Beta Quadrant the new exploration program was off to a slow start and the three key personal are no where to be found in the Delta Quadrant but that does not stop Starfleet from assigning new ships to the Delta Quadrant.


For the third month in a row there was no word from the USS Shadow and Commodore Jonathan Sumpter. Last reports had the Shadow over in the Gamma Quadrant. But the reports are still unconfirmed at this time since know one is able to track the movements of the USS Shadow at this time.


USS Shadow under the command of Commodore Jonathan Sumpter reports in with Starfleet and sets course for the Raeyan Sector to assume his new role as Chief of Staff of Task Force 38.

In late 2383 the USS Shadow, along with the rest of Task Force 38 engaged the Borg in a devastating battle. The result was the loss of many Federation ships, including the Shadow (NCC-51585-B), as well as the collapse of the Omega field, and the Iconian Gateway. The next Shadow would come in the form of yet another Intrepid-class: the USS Shadow NCC-51585-C. In early 2384 the USS Shadow moved over to Task Force 72.

In February 2384 the Shadow was to become the flagship of Task Force 21 under the command of Rear Admiral Jonathan Sumpter. Late in 2384, Rear Admiral Sumpter was promoted and his first officer, then Commander Halaris Imorious was promoted to Commanding Officer. Shortly after she was to be promoted again to Captain and served a brief stint as a Task Group Commanding Officer until a quick reassignment to Task Force 58.

In 2385 Starfleet Command, would reassign the Shadow once more, this time to Task Force 86's Task Group Trident after being offered the position of Task Group Commanding Officer.

After a few years the Shadow was re-assigned back to the Task Force 58 where Captain Halaris Imorious stepped down from Command. Starfleet Command decided to re-commission the USS Shadow as NCC-76595. A new Commanding Officer was re-assigned to the Shadow: Lt. Commander Christopher Dennis. Once the Assistant Chief Medical Officer aboard the ship, he was happy to jump straight back on board and take command.

USS Shadow NCC-85731

On February 2390 the newest USS Shadow became commissioned with new upgrades including a Quantum Slipstream Drive and a complete refit. She is currently docked at Starbase 400 while they finish these upgrades. The USS Shadow has been assigned to a newly promoted Captain Yoshi Baldwin-Webb and she has been assigned to Task Force 94 with Admiral Mike K'Wor Bremer and Starbase 400 is the Flagbase for the Task Force. Her mission is to patrol and protect the area from enemies.

In early 2391, the USS Shadow was placed in command of newly promoted Captain Michael Hunt when Yoshi resigned to raise her and XO Commander David Webb's daughter on Earth. David acted as his wife's proxy and was temporarily promoted to Acting Captain for the Change of Command ceremony on the bridge. He took a desk job at Starfleet Command's Intelligence Department on Earth. Mike made Lt.Cmdr. Telios Wintersnow his XO and promoted her to Commander.
