The battleship Ulysses (796 UC (487 IC / 3596 CE))
|Affiliation:||Free Planets Alliance|
The Ulysses (Japanese: ユリシーズ) was an Alliance battleship.
The Ulysses was part of the newly formed Iserlohn Garrison Fleet under Admiral Yang Wen-li in 796 UC (487 IC / 3596 CE). It escorted an Imperial vessel to Iserlohn Fortress carrying a special envoy to propose a prisoner exchange. (DNT: 'Before the Storm')
The Ulysses, whilst a battleship, bears little resemblance to the standard battleships of the Alliance fleet. It features a blue color scheme and a hull layout which distributes its forward cannon armament between both the dorsal and ventral side of the bow. A semi-circular ring structure also houses six of its twelve engines.
