Commissioned by James Ardin, he was also its first Captain, to be followed by Kyle Marion for a short time and Banner Ton. It has many small modifications including quad laser cannons arranged along the bridge and shield towers, two small gravity well generators, and a specialized bridge that can be ejected from the vessel, which would allow the ship to be controlled fully from engineering.
The very presence of the ship once assured a victory for the Empire, but with its defeat at the hands of the Xen'Chi at Ord Mantell that is no longer the case. The ship was presumed destroyed.
But it was not.
Defying the laws of physics the ship managed to jump to hyperspace while in a gravity well and escape. It floated in dead space, possessed by Damascus and his minions who eventually took control of the vessel. His ownership, however, was short lived. It was quickly taken over by GAIT who has redesigned it, and improved it with her ultra advanced technology.
