Akira Class Retrospective

Via Junkball

The Akira-class was a type of heavy cruiser starship in service to the Federation Starfleet in the 24th century. Planned in the 2350s in response to rising hostilities with the Cardassian Union, the vessel was given an increased priority when the mid-2360s brought on the Federation’s awareness of the threat of Borg invasion. Akira class vessels entered service in the year 2368 as fast, maneuverable attack ships. (DS9 reference: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Technical Manual; ST reference: Starship Spotter; Last Unicorn RPG module: The Price of Freedom; Decipher RPG modules: Starfleet Operations Manual, Starships)

The Akira vessels were registered as class 3 heavy cruisers. (DS9 video game: Dominion Wars)
