The history of the Brightstar begins on Stardate 9809.14 (ED September 14, 1998) with its commissioning. When the Brightstar was first commissioned, Commander Debbie Henderson (now Captain) was asked to take command of the Brightstar with a crew of 8 people. In 2002 the current First Officer Captain James "T'sikes" Webb is temporarily transferred from the U.S.S. Defiant N.C.C. 1630 D (where he was the Chief Security Officer) to the Brightstar for temporary duty as Chief Medical Officer (CMO). Six months later, he was asked to stay on board on a permanent basis. With his transferred approved, The Captain was then moved from medical to command where upon he was promoted to the position of First Officer. In 2010 he would also take on the title of Chief Science Officer. In 2003 a former member of the Brightstar (who asked not to be named) won Third place Recruiter of the year. In 2008 , the Brightstar premiered the first edition of the StarLight newsletter. Later that same year at a impromptu Star Trek convention dubbed FreKon, the Brightstar won "Small Ship of the year" Third Place. In early 2009 the Brightstar unveiled its new ships logo (see above). In September 2010 at the annual anniversary cookout commemorating the Brightstar commissioning, four new members were added to the crew of the Brightstar. In August 2011, the StarLight newsletter recorded a milestone by completing a full volume year (a full year of the StarLight newsletter without interruption).
