Covers the USS Swiftfire-A and how the reboot will impact it. It was posted on the 21st of April 2016.

In the post it states that the crew will be returning with the "same names, ranks and positions", however that has been proven incorrect since this was posted. "Frank Cole" has been renamed to "Frank Edwin", which suggests while the characters might return their names, ranks and positions could be different.
