It does not matter how slowly you go so long as you do not stop.
The Hiei is without a doubt one of the oldest ships in service of the fourteenth fleet. Like several of her siblings, she saw
some of the most intense battle action during the Dominion war. Almost retired several times but uncannily managed to evade
de-commissioning. The year is 2392 and this ageing frigate has just experienced a re-fit, overhauled with more current
technology and ready to emulate, if not conquer the achievements of the other more superior ships.
The Hiei was named after the 20th century Japanese (Earth) naval battleship, also named after Mount Hiei, Japan, Earth.
