Banshee: It is believed the first banshee was the Irish battle goddess, Morrígan, Her role often involves premonitions of a particular warrior's violent death. In Traditional Irish folklore, is a fairy woman keening at the death of important personages, it was believed that the appearance of the banshee could foretell death.


The USS Akira and the Akira Class Starship entered service in 2363, and a rapid production run put nearly a hundred others into the fleet over the next twelve years. Most were assigned to units on the outer Federation territories, performing patrol and presence missions as well as the normal mapping and exploration duties which any Starfleet vessel is expected to handle.

More recently the escalation of tensions at the Federations core over the last few years has led to almost all of the Akiras being recalled to operate nearer to Earth; thirty five where assigned to the Typhon Sector Fleet in 2370, the remainder being assigned to the areas adjacent to the Cardassian, Klingon and Romulan borders. Akira class vessels featured prominently in the 2373 Borg attack on Earth2; the Typhon Fleet, together with several reinforcement squadrons, fought a running battle with the Borg vessel from the Typhon sector to Earth. Many of the ships were destroyed during this battle. A notable participant was the USS Thunderchild, NCC 63549, which participated in the final assault which destroyed the Borg cube.2

The Akiras had been due to cease production in 2373, but with the disastrous contact with the Dominion Starfleet decided to continue production at an increased rate. When the Dominion war began, production of the Akira was boosted to eighteen per year as the Federation converted its economy to a war footing. The Akiras have now become a common sight on the front lines, participating in most of the major battles.

Construction and Initial Assignment

USS Banshee was designed by the Advanced Starship Design Bureau and constructed at Cascadia Shipyards as a Deep Space Explorer/Carrier & Torpedo Cruiser, her first mission was to return to Unimatrix 01 Transwarp hub and determine if there is anythign left of the Borg collective, and if possible retrieve the Federation shuttle left behind by Captain Janeway.

The USS Banshee was Commissioned on Stardate 120229 under the command of Captain Madadh Magic and on Stardate 120501, After the ship collided with a Borg sphere on its first mission, Captain magic fled the ship taking here sister the chief of security Brandi Meredith from sickbay, During their escape Captain Magic disabled several of the ships key systems, and then detonated an EMP device on the flight deck damaging EPS systems across 4 decks. Leaving the ship vulnerable in a dangerous area of space. In the after math of her escape Captain Magic's former Executive Officer Commander Jamie Czavicevic took command of the Banshee, and began repairs, and brought the ship and crew home to the Pinastri Star System. USS Banshee had been given a complete refit and on Stardate 120703 returned to active service under command of Commander Jamie Czavicevic

Support Crafts

Flight bay :: The through-deck flight bay spans the entire length of the primary hull on Decks 11 & 12. The Flight bay module has replaced the shuttle bay module that is in previous Classes Star ships. This Flight bay contains support services for the latest in Starfleet shuttle and runabout designs. The Flight bay is controlled by a space/air-traffic control room, known as "Flight Operations". This is located against the Aft wall of the Flight bay, Between the Aft Fighter bay doors, which in turn is supervised by the TIO (Tactical Information Officer) on the bridge.

2387 ReFit Enhancements

  • Multi-Layered Shielding System (M.L.S.S.)
    • Added to the USS Prometheus and the Prometheus class, the M.L.S.S. itself consists of 3 Layers which absorb the impact from Phaser fire or Torpedoes, it works in conjunction with the Ablative Hull Armour and acts as the First line of defense for the ship when the Shields are either compromised or have failed due to excessive damage.
  • Regenerative Shields
    • An advanced shielding technology implemented on Starfleet starships in the late 24th Century. Regenerative shielding quickly analyses an attacking weapon's frequency and then modulate shield frequency to decrease damage without depleting shield energy.
  • Ablative Hull Armor (A.H.A.)
    • Ablative armour was developed during the Borg defensive weapons project along with pulse phaser cannons and Quantum Torpedo development. Ablative armour provided an extra layer of defence for the vessel against enemy fire if the shields failed. It worked by forming a protective layer over the hull surface capable of rapidly dissipating the energy impacts from directed energy weapon fire. It is standard fitting on Prometheus class starships and optionally added to other combat orientated starships such as the defiant class.
  • Bio-neural gel pack
    • The gel packs formed the basis of the bio-neural circuitry, which was essentially an organic computer system. The packs contained neural fibers surrounded in a blue gel with metallic interfaces on the top and bottom. They helped store more information and operated at faster speeds than isolinear circuitry. The fibers in an individual gel pack were capable of making billions of connections, thus generating an incredibly sophisticated and responsive computing architecture. This kind of organic circuitry allowed computers to "think" in very similar ways to living organisms; by using "fuzzy logic", they could effectively operate by making a "best guess" answer to complex questions rather than working through all possible calculations. This was due in part to the inherent ability of organic neural systems to correlate chaotic patterns that eluded the capacities of conventional hardware.
  • APD-01 Dilithium Swirl Chamber
    • Advanced Propulsion Drive (APD-01). This lighter, high-power core utilizes swirl technology instead of a reaction chamber. Additional improvements to Plasma Transfer Conduit technology makes the drive system energy efficient and allows for the variable warp geometry. Improved verterion coil manufacture allows for the production of superior warp fields. Vessels equipped with the APD-01 (M/ARA) Drive System no longer have the maximum cruising speed limit of Warp 5 imposed after the discovery of subspace damaged caused by high-warp speeds.
