The USS Phoenix (NCC-65420) was a 24th century Federation Nebula-class starship operated by Starfleet. This ship was constructed by the Yoyodyne Division at 40 Eridani A Starfleet Construction Yards and commissioned on stardate 40250.5 in 2363. In 2367, the Phoenix was under the command of Captain Benjamin Maxwell.
In 2367, Captain Maxwell turned vigilante with the Phoenix, destroying a Cardassian outpost and several ships in Sector 21505 seemingly without provocation. Captain Jean-Luc Picard was assigned to intercept and stop Maxwell. When the Enterprise finally caught up with the Phoenix, Picard ordered Maxwell back to Starbase 211, however, during their return, Maxwell veered from course and headed towards another supply ship. When the Enterprise arrived at their position, Maxwell demanded Picard search the vessel as proof that Maxwell's actions were justified. Picard refused and a stand-off ensued. Ultimately the stand-off ended successfully with no further loss of lives when Chief Miles O'Brien was able to beam over during a 1/50th of a second "window" in the Phoenix's shields caused by its high energy sweeps. Once on board he managed to convince Maxwell to stand down his ship.
The fully illustrated magazine includes details on the USS Phoenix’s design and specifications as well as an article on production design for season four of Star Trek: The Next Generation.
The collection features a full range of Federation and alien vessels including seven incarnations of the Enterprise; all the major Klingon vessels including the Bird-of-Prey; Dominion; Borg; and Romulan ships and is slated to include about 130 ships in total.
