Service history

The flagship of the 7th Fleet, the Kukulkan participated in the Alliance invasion of Imperial territory. With Alliance supply lines cut off, the 7th Fleet was engaged by the Kircheis Fleet. The 7th fleet was comprehensively defeated, losing 90% of its ships, and the Kircheis Fleet departed the battle. Notwithstanding that, the Kukulkan survived. When the 13th Fleet arrived in the area and was also engaged by the Kircheis Fleet, Vice Admiral Hawood marshalled his remaining forces and launched a doomed charge into the Kircheis Fleet, allowing the 13th Fleet to withdraw. The Kukulkan's fate is unknown. (DNT: 'The Verge of Death (Part Two)')

Design

The Kukulkan, like most Alliance flagships, is a modified version of the Alliance's standard battleship design. As with the majority of Alliance flagships, a key distinguishing feature are the four antennae protruding from the dorsal, ventral, port and starboard side of the rear hull. Additional armament emplacements protrude from both the port and starboard side of the upper-half of the vessel's prow. The Kukulkan is visually identical to the 4th Fleet flagship, the Leonidas.
