Construction and Civilian Service

The first sections of the Brave New World were laid down at the Sheffield shipyards upon Mars in January 2469, the thirteenth Phoenix to be created at those yards. It took a further seven months for the initial frame to be pieced together, and another six months onto that to finish the superstructure. That allowed eight months to be spent upon furbishing the interior and finally, three months to ensure the vessel was spaceworthy before giving the engineering teams permission to send it upon it's maiden voyage to Earth.

It was at Earth that the Brave New World was officially accepted into the service of the United Nations Space Command, although running under a mixture of a civilian crew with UNSC supervisors to ensure that if anything did do wrong, they could handle it. The 'overseer' crew consisted of a mere handful of UNSCDF personnel, ranging from Fred Ambrose, the ships executive officer, to Major Briars who was the head of the small marine complement deployed with the colonist's to aid in securing the colony against any possible threats which might be found.
