The USS Akira (NX-62497, later NCC-62497) was a 24th century Federation starship, an Akira-class heavy cruiser that entered Starfleet service in the 2360s decade. When she was commissioned in the year 2368, the Akira was the prototype for a new class of cruisers. (ST reference: Starship Spotter; Decipher RPG modules: Starfleet Operations Manual, Starships)
Service history and disposition
The hull configuration of this new breed of starship was based on the design as a homage to some of the earliest Starfleet exploratory vessels, such as the NX-class. The Akira was also designed to perform border defense duties, which many vessels did during the brief conflict between the Federation and the Klingon Empire. (CCG set: Second Edition)
The Akira took part in the Dominion War. During one engagement, the Akira fired its phasers on a Jem'Hadar dreadnought pursuing the USS Centaur. (SOTL - Ships of the Line calendar: 2021 October image: "The Dominion Conflict Goes Hot")
