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[edit | edit source]

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)

This starship class was named after the anime film Akira, according to the Star Trek Encyclopedia.

This ship was in active service around the year 2379. (ST video game: Starfleet Command III)

No specific history or definitive final fate was established for this vessel in SFC3 as its name was selected for a ship by the game developers, and is placed randomly when the ship appears.
