The U.S.S. Poseidon (NCC-42635) is a Miranda-class Destroyer residing within the command of Pegasus Fleet. Her primary objectives are the security of civilian and military convoys and freighters to outlaying Federation frontier worlds, and anti-piracy operations. Recently updated and overhauled with modern technology and systems, she represents the best Starfleet has to offer for missions involving escorts and member-system security.
The U.S.S. Poseidon is an excellent example of a ship in the middle ground of Starfleet perimeters. Here, new cadets can make a name for themselves generally away from most hostile situations. The tasks of convoy escorting and system security are considered to be easy-going, especially in the modern day and age of 2393. There is always the chance for excitement, however, and no cadet or senior member of Starfleet should exclude that possibility.
