The U.S.S. Phoenix NCC-65420 is a 24th-century Nebula-class Starfleet vessel that was under the command of Captain Benjamin Maxwell. Under his control, Maxwell used the U.S.S. Phoenix to destroy seemingly harmless ships and claimed that his actions were to prevent Cardassians from preparing to revolt against the United Federation of Planets only after a year of peace has been settled with them. Captain Picard and Chief Miles O'Brien were able to convince Maxwell to stand down his ship and no further lives were lost. In the accompanying magazine, it features how Michael Okuda and Rick Sternbach made design upgrades to the "kitbashed" Nebula models that were originally built by Ed Miarecki, plus a look back at the making of Season Four of Star Trek: The Next Generation.
