The Free Planets Alliance battleship Vivasvat (Japanese: ヴィヴァスヴァット) was flagship of the Free Planets Alliance 11th Fleet under the command of Vice Admiral John Drinker Cope. (SL: 'A Profile of Heroes')
The Vivasvat participated in the Second Battle of Tiamat. It survived the battle despite being in the thick of the fighting, especially in the first phase of the battle. In 751 UC (442 IC / 3551 CE), Cope commanded Alliance forces during the Battle of Palantia, but peformed poorly leading to a defeat, the destruction of the Vivasvat, and his own death.

The Vivasvat like other Alliance flagships of the era, had a single very large engine section. Its overall proportions and contours were somewhat similar to a smoother upscaled version of the contemporary Alliance standard cruiser. Compared to other flagships, its prow section was proportionally shorter compared to its engine section. Additional armor plating reinforced both sides of the ship.

The Hindu god of the sun as divinity, also regarded as the architect who built the cities of the gods. His consort is Saranya, and his children are Yama, Yami, Manu, and the Aswins.
A production sketch of the Vivasvat appears in the extra features of the DVD box set.
