U.S.S. Eagle NCC-956
Construction on the Federation Starship Eagle, a Constitution class cruiser, was authorized by the Starfleet Appropriation of Stardate 3220. The Eagle was constructed to the Bonhomme Richard subclass specifications, and commissioned on Reference Stardate 2/0405 (May 2247). Prior to 2263, Commander James T. Kirk served as first officer aboard the Eagle under Captain Botwin.
Although largely crewed by Humans at first, the Eagle would later host an all-Andorian crew under Captain Igrilan Kor, and the Eagle was the most decorated Starfleet vessel of its time. In 2275, the Eagle made first contact with the enigmatic Breen. Captain Kor beamed over to the Breen ship and, although language barriers impeded productive diplomatic negotiations, reported that the Breen were a peaceful, if somewhat withdrawn, species. This contributed a great deal to future confusion over the Breen's attitude when they, apparently inexplicably, became hostile.
The Eagle was upgraded to Mark II refit specifications on Reference Stardate 2/2108 (August 2284), then to Mark III on Reference Stardate 2/2411 (November 2287), and to Mark IV on Reference Stardate 2/3303 (March 2296). In 2293, the Eagle, while on a colony resupply mission, was included in plans for Operation Retrieve, a proposed rescue operation of Captain Kirk and Dr. McCoy from Klingon hands. The Eagle was destroyed on Reference Stardate 2/4707 (July 2310).
Construction on the Federation Starship Eagle, a Constitution class cruiser, was authorized by the Starfleet Appropriation of Stardate 3220. The Eagle was constructed to Mark III specifications on Reference Stardate 2/0405 (May 2204). The Eagle was scrapped on Reference Stardate 2/2006 (June 2220).

Notes and References
- The "Star Fleet Technical Manual" lists the Eagle's registry number as NCC-1719, while the "Federation Ship Recognition Manual" and "Star Trek: The Next Generation Officer's Manual" list the Eagle's registry number as NCC-1738. Further, Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country lists the Eagle's registry as NCC-956. The registries that contradict the film, as well as contradictory data on the ship's disposition, must be ignored in favor of later information. Accordingly, the information for the U.S.S. Eagle NCC-1738 and the U.S.S. Eagle II NCC-1738 from the FASA supplements has been merged into a single entry.
