This page details USS Aeolus in the primary universe; for the USS Aeolus in the Kelvin timeline created by Nero's temporal incursion see USS Aeolus (Kelvin timeline).

The USS Aeolus (NCC-588) was a 23rd century Federation starship, authorized on stardate 0965 by Starfleet for construction as a Mk VII Hermes-class class I scout. (TOS reference: Star Fleet Technical Manual)

Service history and disposition[]

In the late 2250s, Lt. Commander James T. Kirk served aboard the Aeolus as second officer. The Aeolus had been pursuing Aldebaran pirates. A guest aboard the vessel, Cecilia Simons, became his lover, precipitating a romantic meal which caused Kirk to become violently ill. With the second officer incapacitated, the Aeolus night shift bridge crew botched the ongoing tracking of the pirates. Years later, Kirk still held onto the belief that Simons had a hand in the pirates being able to escape the Aeolus. (TOS novel: Enemy Unseen)

In the Kelvin timeline, a version of the Aelous was active in the 23rd century. (TOS video game: Rivals) (See USS Aeolus (Kelvin Timeline).)
