The Brünhild (Japanese: ブリュンヒルト) was the flagship of Reinhard von Lohengramm.


Service history

The Brünhild was first observed as the supreme flagship of the Imperial Navy's expeditionary fleet at the Battle of Astarte in 796 UC (487 IC / 3596 CE). Commanding a fleet of 20,000 ships, the Brünhild led the destruction of the Free Planets Alliance's 4th Fleet and 6th Fleet before being forced into a stalemate with the 2nd Fleet under the temporary command of Commodore Yang Wen-li. (DNT: 'In the Eternal Night', 'The Battle of Astarte')

The Brünhild's next sortie was as the command ship of the Imperial counterattack against the Alliance's invasion of Imperial space later in 796 UC (487 IC / 3596 CE). (DNT: 'The Verge of Death (Part One)', 'The Verge of Death (Part Two)')


The Brünhild's design is unique amongst all observed Imperial ships. With a gleaming white hull, virtually the entire dorsal hull leading toward the ship's propulsion systems is a single large transparency, under which various parts of the ship's structure can be observed. It is also unique amongst Imperial ships in that there are no obvious energy weapon emplacements visible on its hull. Rather, all of its observed energy weapons systems are observed to fire from beneath (and through) the transparency on the dorsal side. (DNT: 'In the Eternal Night')
