The Eagle class frigate was a precursor to the quick moving, hard hitting Kennedy class missile cruisers. Many of the design features that made the Kennedy's such good ships were tested on the Eagles in the 2280's. Highly advanced when it was designed, the Eagle is still among the most advanced frigates in the human arsenal. Two of these frigates, the USS Spitfire and the USS Temptress, saw extensive action throughout the Kafer invasion, serving to round out the American squadron at Eta Bootis. These ships are named for fighters throughout the history of the United States, including the Eagle, Falcon, Hellcat, Mustang, and Raptor.
