“The dream of yesterday is the hope of today and the reality of tomorrow.”

The USS Apollo, NCC-71669, was an Achilles class starship under the command of Fleet Captain Andrus Jaxx, who was first given command of the Apollo on stardate 238902.03.

Leading her out on her maiden voyage, the Apollo would start her primary mission: deep space exploration. After a year in service, the kinks of the Apollo had been worked out. The ship was recalled for a slight refitting of the shuttle bay. The Apollo became the testing bed for the experimental Valkyrie Mark II Fighter.

While enacting the Omega Directive, the ship was lost in combat with two Borg Cubes on stardate 239104.15.

The Apollo Space Program was a vision come to life when the Apollo 11 crew landed on the surface of Earth’s moon. For decades, it stood alone as the single greatest achievement in deep space exploration. On the heels of the program, mankind was tested to push themselves harder, and further into space.

The Achilles class starship was designed to carry out the goal of defending the Federation. Now, it can explore deep where others have only dreamed of. With the tides of war behind the Federation, crews of ships tooled for battle would need to find new ways to push their vessel. Ships that had the ability to hold their own could be sent to explore far beyond the Federation’s borders, and still defend the Federation if needed. Completed at Utopia Planetia, the USS Apollo lacked the problematic THETIS AI system. The updated science section was installed during the original construction of the vessel, to retool it to serve a multi-mission purpose. The ship design was now able to modify its initial intent of defense, to exploration where back-up is far away.


"There can be no thought of finishing, for aiming at the stars,
both literally and figuratively, is the work of generations,
but no matter how much progress one makes
there is always the thrill of just beginning."
