DECOMMISSIONED NPC VESSEL
The USS Armstrong-A was a Constitution class Refit Class vessel. Her name pays tribute to the historical Armstrong Class of vessels that were early explorers. She was commissioned in 2288, twenty years after the destruction of the original USS Armstrong.
The Armstrong-A was well known for being a border patrol ship which fought against the Klingons in the historical battle of Kraxin IV, and later went on to forge peace with the Klingons 8 months after the Khitomer accords when they prevented a rogue Starfleet officer from stealing a Klingon cloaking device. She was decommissioned in 2340; but became the subject ship of a popular melodramatic holoprogram series entitled "Tales of the Borderzones" by Forsythe Historical Holonovel Productions
"Piracy on the High Stars" is the first chapter that loosely re-enacts the mission to prevent spies from stealing a Klingon cloaking device.
The USS Armstrong-A would be succeeded by the USS Armstrong-B, an Challenger class starship that was ambushed in the Federation-Klingon war of 2373 and sustained heavy damage.
