Service history

Flagship of the Reuenthal Fleet, the Tristan's first campaign was the counterattack against the Free Planets Alliance's invasion of Imperial space in 796 UC (487 IC / 3596 CE)—engaging the 5th Fleet. It would go on to participate in the Battle of Amritsar. (DNT: 'The Verge of Death (Part Two)', 'Amritsar')

Imperial Civil War

The Beowulf served in Reinhard von Lohengramm's campaign against the Lippstadt League in the Imperial Civil War in 797 UC (488 IC / 3597 CE), including being at the forefront of the effort to capture Rentenberg Fortress and fighting against the main rebel forces outside of Geiersburg Fortress. At the end of the war, it raced back to Odin to seize control of the capital in Reinhard's name. (DNT: 'Bloodshed in Space', 'Tragedy', 'Farewell to the Days of Old')


Resembling a standard Imperial battleship in layout, the Tristan shared some design similarities with the Beowulf, particularly the tapered shape of its forward hull. It featured a heavier forward armament than the Beowulf, mounting 48 cannons to the Beowulf's 30. Box-type missile launchers with multiple cells were mounted on the dorsal hull and could launch large volleys of missiles. Seven launch bays for Walküre fighters were arrayed on the ventral hull. (DNT: 'Tragedy')
