Esther Ross strained to hear as a man in Navy whites repeated once more the steps required to christen a battleship. He motioned toward two bottles, one filled with sparkling wine from Ohio, one with water from Roosevelt Lake in Arizona, and then toward the prow of the ship, a vessel soon to take its place at sea as the mightiest battleship in the world. The ship wore a red coat on this day, a temporary one of primer that would be covered soon with the flat gray of a battleship. Its hulk towered over the grandstand. The hull measured feet and the center beam was almost feet across.
His hair has a loose curl to it but kept short in accordance with Starfleet regulations. His presence is noticeable but not dominating or particularly forthright. His build is medium and physique fit but not overtly muscular; perhaps somewhat wiry. His distinguishing marks include standard purple-brown Trill spots; and a small tattoo of geometric design on his upper left shoulder-blade. However he occasionally struggles to disentangle the memories of previous hosts from those of the present; his recollections can therefore be surprising often anachronistic and sometimes discussed from the perspective of the opposite gender.

Named in honor of the 48th state's recent admission into the union and commissioned in , the ship remained stateside during World War I. Shortly after the end of the war, Arizona was one of a number of American ships that briefly escorted President Woodrow Wilson to the Paris Peace Conference. The ship was sent to Turkey in at the beginning of the Greco-Turkish War to represent American interests for several months. Several years later, she was transferred to the Pacific Fleet and remained there for the rest of her career.
That work included corrosion rack deployment, collecting surface oil samples, and project imaging and documentation - all in an effort to better understand the rate of corrosion of the USS Arizona and to learn more about the oil that is still leaking from the ship. The team also included Chris Reddy, senior scientist for the department of marine chemistry and geochemistry at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute, and metallurgist Don Johnson. Find out more about what they learned. Another story can be found here.
The assignments in the plot class and the character class were too confusing and structured, but the assignments in the craft of setting class were perfectly designed to help the student practice whatever was taught in the modules.
