The ship:

*U.S.S. Atlantis*, Intrepid Class (just like *Voyager*) extra systems
Phasing Cloaking Device (like what was used on *U.S.S. Pegasus*
Geordi and Ro)
Matter Stream Modifier – Modifies people being transported to
like others. Illegal in Federation, dangerous.
Self – Contained Controlled Chroniton Particle Timedrive –
(Abbrev. “SCCCPTD”) Time Warp Drive used to time travel the ship.
Holo-emitter system – disguises the ship outside (and inside, if
need be).
Mission communicators – nondescript, send video as well as audio
back to bridge, typically used with aural implants so bridge can secretly
advise away team during missions.

The crew:

Commodore Andreyevich, Russian. First name changed from Ivan to
Dimitri, possibly as a side effect of changing history during
*Challenger* mission. No accent, excellent language
skills, claims to speak 22 fluently. Can speak many Federation languages
and non-Federation ones, including Orion. He can also read Old Vulcan.

expert, First Contact Expert. Nicknamed Hot Cheeks. Serves as First

mission specialist for first mission, operates temporal plotter station
on bridge.

There is an unknown mole in the crew from DTI (Department of
