The USS Agamemnon was an Odysseus-class Starfleet vessel under the command of Captain Esteban Rodriguez, and was one of a number of starships named for a hero of Greek literature. It was assigned to the Federation-Romulan Border in 2311. It was one of only two ships in its class remaining in service and there were rumors it was soon to be decommissioned.
The Agammemnon was destroyed in the Foxtrot sector with a loss of all hands when the artificial quantum singularity powering the Romulan flagship IRW Tomed's warp drive collapsed mid-warp, creating a subspace shock wave that tore apart the sector. Agamemnon fired on Tomed but was unable to stop the ship. (TLE novel: Serpents Among the Ruins; STA novel: Progenitor)
- In truth, though the Agamemnon was destroyed by the shock wave, and all crew members were reported as having been killed in action, there was no loss of life aboard the vessel; see Tomed Incident for details.
