Star Trek Expanded Universe

The USS Argus (NCC-75124) was a Sovereign-class Federation starship, in service during the late 24th century. The fifth starship to bear the name, the Argus was commissioned on stardate 50450.5 in 2373. (Star Trek: The Adventures of Argus)


Commissioned on stardate 50450.5 (2373), the USS Argus was the fourth ship of the Sovereign-class to be launched. It was constructed at the Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards in orbit of Mars.

The Argus's shakedown cruise overseen by Captain Robert Styles, who then assumed command following the commissioning. However, shortly after the launch, the ship suffered a complete systems failure and had to return to Utopia Planitia. Discovering several issues that had been ignored during the testing of the ship, Captain Styles was removed from command. ("Messages From Home")

Mission patch of the Argus.

Shortly before the ship was due to be re-launched in early 2374, the new Commanding officer, Captain sh’Shaen, was killed when the ship transporting him was destroyed in a Dominion ambush. In order to prevent further delay the Argus' first officer, Commander Jonozia Lex, was promoted to Captain and assumed command. The ship was then assigned to join the Seventh fleet in the Tyra system. Arriving to find the fleet decimated, the ship mounted a rescue operation to Tyra III where most of the survivors' escape pods had landed, preventing Dominion forces from gaining control of a Preserver outpost in the process. ("Trial By Fire")

On stardate 51459.4 (2374) the Argus completed an escort mission to Starbase Deep Space Six, where several of the ship's crew were temporarily assigned to the USS Defender. Before these crew members returned the Argus was sent to investigate a radio signal emanating from the Ganoris system, where the crew discovered the BRS Argus in orbit of Ganoris IV. Further investigation of the sleeper ship uncovered the Defender's temporary crew in Cryogenic stasis and the Argus was ordered by Temporal Investigations to hold position until a ship assigned to the Starfleet Corps of Engineers could arrive to tow the BRS Argus back to DS6. However, before the SCE ship could arrive, the sleeper ship was destroyed by an attacking Dominion force, the Argus being spared the fate by the timely arrival of the Defender.
