The USS Ajax (NCC-11574) was a Federation Apollo-class light cruiser in service to Starfleet in the early to late 24th century. The starship was named in honor of the Greek legendary hero Ajax. (ST reference: The Star Trek Encyclopedia; TNG episodes: "Where No One Has Gone Before", "Brothers"; ST video game: Legacy)

Service history[edit | edit source]

During the mid-2320s decade, the Ajax was commanded by Captain Narth, and in the year 2327, Ensign Cortin Zweller was assigned to the Ajax following his graduation from Starfleet Academy. (TNG episode: "Tapestry";TNG - Section 31 novel: Rogue)

In 2329, Cortin Zweller stopped a Tzenkethi saboteur on the Ajax. Afterwards, Zweller was approached by the Section 31 agency. (TNG - Section 31 novel: Rogue)

In 2333, Cortin Zweller was the second officer of the Ajax. (STA novel: Gauntlet)

In 2341, the Ajax, under the command of Captain Benoi, transported a group of Starfleet cadets to an archaeological dig on Arunu. (TNG novel: Deceptions)

In 2364, the Ajax was one of several Federation starships that were chosen to receive enhancements to their warp drives by engineering specialist Kosinski and his aide, the Traveler. After their tests were completed, the Ajax's chief engineer noted a rise in engine efficiency. It was later revealed that the effect was direcly related to the Traveler and had nothing to do with Kosinski's new warp equations. (TNG episode: "Where No One Has Gone Before")

In 2368, the Ajax was one of 23 starships that formed part of a tachyon detection grid, when Captain Jean-Luc Picard established the network along the Klingon-Romulan border in order to expose the Romulans' involvement in the Klingon Civil War. (TNG episode: "Redemption, Part II")

In 2369, the Ajax was performing a deep space exploration mission into Sector 21396. (ST video game: Star Trek: Captain's Chair)
