Service history

Flagship of the Mecklinger Fleet, the Gandharva's first campaign was the counterattack against the Free Planets Alliance's invasion of Imperial space in 796 UC (487 IC / 3596 CE) - engaging and defeating the 8th Fleet and and then rejoining with all of Fleet Admiral Lohengramm's forces in the Battle of Amritsar Starzone. It would also fight in the major battles outside Geiersburg Fortress in the Imperial Civil War in 797 UC (488 IC / 3597 CE). (DNT: 'The Verge of Death (Part Two)', 'Amritsar', 'Tragedy')

Design

Like most Imperial flagships, the Gandharva's design resembles a standard Imperial battleship in layout. The Gandharva's distinguishing features include its lightly colored hull and prominent raised weapons implacement on the prow, fitted with dorsal, port and starboard-facing weapon ports.
