The Antares (NCC-501) was a 23rd century Antares-type Federationstarship operated by Starfleet.
In 2266, the crew of the Antares transferred a young man, Charles Evans, who had been stranded on the planet Thasus for fourteen years, to the USS Enterprise, so he could be transported to Earth Colony Alpha V to be reunited with his closest living relatives.
On stardate 1535.8, the Antares was destroyed when young Charlie used his psychokinetic powers to make a baffle plate on the shield of the ship'senergy pile "go away." Charlie did not seem to understand the seriousness of his actions, saying simply that the baffle plate was warped, and that the Antares would have blown up anyway. As seen in the original series episode "Charlie X" (Remastered Edition)
The fully illustrated magazine includes details of the Antares' capabilities, design, and appearance in Star Trek. It also features an article on Star Trek: The Animated Series.
The collection features a full range of Federation and alien vessels including seven incarnations of the Enterprise; all the major Klingon vessels including the Bird-of-Prey; Dominion; Borg; and Romulan ships and is slated to include about 110 ships in total.
