Bio:

The Agora was among Starfleet’s best explorers when it launched, and was a prize assignment for its first decade or two of operations. As it aged and began to compete with newer, better designs, it was gradually pushed back into support roles, spending its last decade of service as little more than a cargo ship. It was finally decommissioned and put into inactive reserves in 2358. Its service up to this point was mostly considered commendable, but not especially remarkable for a major starship.

When the Dominion War began, Starfleet rushed its reserves back into service, until new vessel production could catch up, and the Agora was assigned to the 8th Fleet in early 2374, with crew drawn partly from the Correctional Service Amnesty program. They served reasonably well, until the ship was heavily damaged in battle over Darona, and the decision was made to retire it and scrap it for spares.

The ship’s mascot, since shortly after launch, was a Krognik demon, represented by a mural in the crew lounge.
