The Akira Class

The Akira-class was a type of starship used by Starfleet in the late 24th century Built in response to the Borg threat and rising hostilities with the Cardassians, Akira class vessels are fast manuverable attack ships.


History

The Akira class was initially conceived during rising hostilities with the Cardassian Union, the project at first was just a test in starship design, however following Starfleet’s disastrous losses to the Borg in the Battle of Wolf 359 Starfleet began a major program of starship development and building to meet any future Borg threat.

The USS Akira was launched in 2368 and the Akira class went on become a major player in the fleet. The class performed admirably against the Borg on their return and was involved in numerous battles in the Cardassian Conflicts.

Features

The Akira class is heavily armed with an amazing fifteen photon torpedo launchers. However its defining feature is it's shuttle bay which exists through the length of the ship allowing the Akira class to act as a fighter carrier. Its compliment of forty fighters exit through the forward shuttle doors and return through one of two aft bays

Background information

According to the Star Trek Encyclopedia, the Akira-class was named after the anime film Akira.

A design sketch of the USS Akira shows the vessel bearing the registry NCC-2497. In an unpublished interview with author Larry Nemecek, designer Jaeger said he simply used the four-digit number of his then-phone extension for that registry; to conform to Starfleet practice, the number "6" was added by Mike Okuda and the film's art department to make "62497," a number then approved by producer Rick Berman. At the same time, Jaeger said, two other ship names and registries were approved as back-ups, if needed, to the USS Thunderchild actually seen on film as NCC-65549: the USS Rabin (named after former Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin) as NCC-63293, and the USS Spector (NCC-63549). The ship scale sheet showing the back-up names and registries can be found on John Eaves' blog.

Neither of the latter ships ever appeared on screen, although the CGI file used for the Akira-class seen in the Voyager episode "Message in a Bottle" was numbered NCC-63549, ostensibly the Spector, and was used by the Star Trek Fact Files. The ship allegedly appeared in one of the battle scenes from the sixth and seventh seasons of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, but this has not been verified.
