The USS Akagi (NCC-62158) was a 24th century Federation starship, a Rigel-class heavy scout in Starfleet service in the 2360s decade. Akagi was named in honor of the Japanese aircraft carrier Akagi. (TNG episode: "Redemption", ST reference: The Star Trek Encyclopedia)

Service history and disposition[edit | edit source]

In the year 2367, Engineer Nagurski transferred from the Akagi to the USS Enterprise-D. (TNG comic: "Wet Behind the Ears")

In 2368, the Akagi 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 Romulan's involvement in the Klingon Civil War. During this event, the Akagi worked in conjunction with the USS Hornet to create a hole in the network thus allowing an opportunity to entrap Romulan vessels making use of the gap.

In 2373, Crewman 1st Class Joseph Kirby was assigned to the Akagi. (TNG video game: Starship Creator)
