For other uses, see USS Athens.

The USS Athens was a Federation Starfleet starship in active service during the late 24th century. By 2381, the vessel was under the command of Captain T'Vala.

During the Borg invasion in 2381, the Athens was dispatched to the Azure Nebula to join the other allied reinforcements there to prevent further Borg incursions. While on station, the Athens was successful in determining the proper soliton wave frequency to open subspace tunnel aperture twenty-three alpha. However, before any vessel could pass through to scout, tunnel twenty-six opened to allow over seven thousand Borg cubes through, assaulting the awaiting fleet. (ST - Destiny novel: Mere Mortals)
