The USS Newton isn't your typical Olympic Class Vessel. She's a Curie Refit: meaning that she's been refit to adopt a mainly scientific community working within her decks. She is a gleaming creature of smooth silvered panels and white hexes leading to black screens: all cool and sterile with a slight edge of danger
Missions on the Newton run from testing strange technology discovered by other ships, to researching newly discovered races, to trying out Starfleet's newest personal shields to bioengineering antiviruses in the field. The Newton is also home to a lounge named The Quark.
