Jumpnow Banner - New beginnings

The Cortez is an Earthforce Explorer ship. Nearly as long as Babylon 5 itself, the Cortez is assigned to map the edges of known space. It has its own scout ships and can create its own jumpgate. The ship is powered by a fusion reactor. Under the command of Captain Jack Maynard, the Cortez recently returned from a mission that included Sector 857. Maynard and his navigation officer, Lt. Patrick, saw something big and black in space that quickly vanished.
