In 2368, the Akagi was assigned to Captain Jean-Luc Picard's task force that blockaded the Klingon-Romulan border during the Klingon Civil War. During the deployment of Picard's tachyon detection grid, the Akagi was linked with the USS Ajax and USS Hood.
During an attempt by Picard and Riker to lure the Romulans through the detection grid, Picard decided that the USS Excalibur should withdraw from the formation with feigned engine troubles, forcing the Akagi and Hornet to be repositioned. In doing so, this would open up a small gap in the detection net for the Romulans to attempt to pass through. The ploy, however, failed when the Romulans disrupted the network near the Hornet forcing it, and the rest of the fleet, to withdraw and regroup at Gamma Eridon. (TNG: "Redemption II")
In 2374, the Akagi was assigned to the Ninth Fleet, operating in the Bajor sector theater. A week after Operation Return, the ship visited Deep Space 9 along with the USS Exeter and the USS Sutherland to be resupplied. (DS9: "You Are Cordially Invited")

Background information Edit
Named for the Japanese carrier that served as the flagship of the Pearl Harbor strike force on December 7th, 1941. The Akagi holds the somewhat dubious distinction of being the only Starfleet vessel whose namesake was (indirectly) destroyed by an Enterprise, sunk by bombers from the first aircraft carrier at Midway six months later. The American carrier USS Hornet (CV-8) was also heavily engaged in that action. "Redemption II" writer Ronald D. Moore thought it fitting that in Star Trek's future, the USS Akagi would be serving alongside the USS Hornet. (Star Trek Encyclopedia 1st ed., p. 3)
The term "Akagi" translates from the original Japanese to "Red Castle," a mountain in Japan. In "You Are Cordially Invited", Kira incorrectly pronounces the ship as the "Agaki".
The Price of Freedom sourcebook describes the class of the USS Akagi, Rigel-class, as a heavy scout with a crew of 70. It had 6 decks and was 215 meters in length. The ship had a maximum speed of warp factor 9.2. The ship was armed with type VII phaser emitters, and two torpedo launchers with a normal loadout of 75 photon torpedoes.
