History and specifications[edit | edit source]

In the 2250s decade, the secretive Federation intelligence branch Section 31 operated a fleet that included Nimrod-class motherships. They could deploy Section 31 drone ships in a swarm. One of the ships in service at the time was the NI-0064. (DSC Issue 28: "Section 31 Nimrod-class")

In the year 2257, the artificial intelligence Control assimilated Captain Leland and assumed command over the entire Section 31 fleet. At the Battle near Xahea, Control's fleet engaged the USS Discovery and USS Enterprise in combat in a bid to seize the Sphere data. (DSC episode: "Such Sweet Sorrow")

The NI-0064 in 2257.

The NI-0064 was one of the Nimrod-class mothership joining the battle with its swarm ships. (DSC Issue 28: "Section 31 Nimrod-class")

Control, in the body of Leland, was temporarily defeated and its fleet destroyed. The Discovery was guided by the Red Angel through a rift into the 32nd century. (DSC episode: "Such Sweet Sorrow, Part 2")

In 2410, the double agent Lieutenant Michelle Rautert secretly investigated Yard 39, and recovered a 23rd century Section 31 intel science destroyer, the USS Samedi. (STO - Rise of Discovery short story: "Triple Cross")

The recovery of Yard 39 in the TL-9139 system led to the revival of 2250s-era starship classes. (STO Issue 01: "U.S.S. Gagarin NCC-97930")

With the launch of the USS Nimrod in 2411, the Nimrod-class entered service as a publically known Starfleet command heavy battlecruiser. (STO website: Command the Section 31 Battlecruiser)
