Ship

The USS G. Washington is the third ship of the Zeus Class. The first ship of the class, the USS Zeus NX-85300 was intended to be a new class of Federation Science & Exploration vessel. Unfortunately, the USS Zeus was destroyed during her shakedown cruise, and the Federation halted the plans for the Zeus Class.  After a re-design, the second ship of the class, the USS Agamemnon NFC-7801-A was commissioned. The USS Agamemnon served the Federation for almost 14 years before she was destroyed during a Borg attack in the Vega system. The Agamemnon was serving as the Flagship for the Federation’s Vice President when she was destroyed. V. Flt Admiral Sexton requested the Federation Corps of Engineers commission a new Zeus Class ship.
