The USS Raven (NAR-32450) was a small five-deck Federation-registered Raven-type ship that rogue civilian scientists Magnus and Erin Hansen used in their voyages.


During the 2350s, the Hansens took the Raven on a field mission to locate and study a rumored race of cybernetic beings from beyond the Romulan Neutral Zone known to the peoples of the Beta Quadrant as the Borg.

In the course of their mission, they stopped at the Drexler outpost in the Omega sector, as recorded in the logs of Deep Space 4. After leaving the station, they deviated from their flight plan, disobeyed a direct order to return and crossed into the Neutral Zone as part of their study into the Borg.

After tracking stray readings and sensor echoes for eight months, the Hansens were able to locate a Borg cube. The ship was pulled into a transwarp conduit while trailing the cube and was transported to the Delta Quadrant.

[1][2]The Raven assimilatedThe Raven continued its exploration of the Borg for three years until 2356, when an ion storm damaged the vessel's multi-adaptive shielding. The shields went off-line for 13.2 seconds, and the Borg detected and pursued the Hansens. The Hansens and their daughter, Annika, were assimilated and the ship was also partially assimilated, crashed onto a moon in B'omar space. (VOY: "The Gift", "The Raven", "Dark Frontier")

The vessel's Borg components continued to emit a resonance frequency despite its damage. This resonance frequency drew Seven of Nine, who had once been Annika Hansen, to the vessel in 2374. Shortly afterward, the vessel was destroyed by B'omar forces. (VOY: "The Raven")
