The USS Aquila, NCC-76853 is a Ross-class Explorer.


The Aquila was launched in 2395 from McKinley Station in Earth Orbit, one of the first "Flight III" models with refinements to several systems deemed lacking in the previous flights. Assigned to catalogue gaseous anomalies under the command of a relatively new Captain, the Aquila served faithfully if not with any distinction until late 2400. Lured into a nebula by a fraudulent distress call, the lack of tactically-minded officers in key senior positions led to the ship being ambushed and heavily damaged by a pack of Pakled Clumpships. The Bridge module was totally destroyed at the cost of most of the senior staff, and only the actions of a few heroic Ensigns managed to save the ship and the rest of the crew. Tragedy would strike again in 2401 during the events of Frontier Day; the heroic Ensigns who had saved the Aquila the year prior were subjected to assimilation by the rediscovered Borg Queen, turning against their superior officers, and leading to the ship engaging in combat against Sol Station. The Aquila was heavily damaged in the combat, and would require extensive repairs and re-crewing.

After nearly a year undergoing repairs at McKinley, the ship was relaunched in late 2402 under the command of Serran Zann with a different mission profile, better suited to her areas of expertise. Zan's command did not last long, as she was replaced by Captain Braggins prior to a mission through the Bajoran Wormhole to retrieve some Ferengi merchants who had gone missing. The mission tested the Aquila when it was faced with Dominion War-era craft controlled by Romulan telepresence devices, but ultimately proved successful; survivors of the Dominion War were located and the Ferengi were retrieved.

Following this mission, the Aquila passed to another Commanding Officer as Braggins was required elsewhere. Command of the Aquila passed between several different officers as more prestigious commands or Flag Officer positions became available; eventually being assigned to Captain Daniel Brooks in early 2404.


The USS Aquila was named for the Latin and Romance languages word for "eagle."
Specifically, it may refer to:
Aquila (constellation), the astronomical constellation, the Eagle
Aquila (bird), a genus of birds including some eagles

Ship's Manual

How Points Are Awarded

1.1 Monthly Points
1.1.1 Players are expected to post a minimum of twice weekly. Each post made by a player will count as 50 points towards their monthly total (up to a total of 400 points).
1.1.2 Qualifying posts must be written with full paragraphs and contain detail. Short posts of three or four lines will not be counted towards the monthly total.
1.1.3 Additional points of up to 100 will be awarded for quality of posting.

1.2 Department Head Points
1.2.1 Department Heads receive up to 100 positional points each month for performing the duties required of them in the Constitution. In order to earn those points, DHs must turn in points recommendations for their department along with an RPGer nomination by the end of the 18th each month, site time.
1.2.2 If a DH has not submitted points by that deadline, they will be docked 50 points. They then have until the end of the 21st, site time, to submit them or risk losing all positional points for the month.
1.2.3 DHs who fail to turn in the required points and RPGer nomination by the end of the 21st will receive no positional points for the month.
1.2.4 Site time refers to the time shown on the main board.

Leaves of Absence

2.1 If a player is to be away from the site for more than 7 days, they are required to announce a Leave of Absence, either by posting on the ship or by sending an email to their superior officer.
2.2 Players whose LOA causes disruption of the game will have their characters hijacked at the CO's discretion to help move along the plotline.
2.3 Players who request LOA will have the twice weekly posting quota waved, but they must make a minimum of 8 posts during the month to receive the full 400 points.
