Star Trek Expanded Universe

The USS Manila was an Excelsior-class Federation starship in the late 24th century attached to Starbase 55. It was often used by both Admiral's Theseus and Cloud whenever they required space travel. The vessel was commanded by Captain Cid. (Star Trek: Phoenix-X)


The ship's function was mostly to run errands for the Federation when needed. From 2374 to 2376, the Manila was for the most part commanded by its First Officer, Commander Avery - due to Captain Cid working more closely with Admiral's Theseus and Cloud aboard Starbase 55. In 2376, Avery was lost to the Gordarions, and Cid realized his neglect for his ship. From then on, he took a more active role as commanding officer.

Due to Theseus' and Cid's direct involvement with the Phoenix-X, some of the crew of the Manila may have been aware of the Phoenix-X's collaboration with Section 31. ("Experimentalism")
