The C.R.S. Allecto (VSD-13) is a Venator-class Star Destroyer commanded by Captain Nerazachi, in active service since 04 BNE, making it amongst the first of its class to be commissioned at the shipyards of Cyroenia. The massive Star Destroyer was unveiled just in time for the outbreak of the Great Cyrannus War, where it often saw action in some of the largest conflicts in the Quadrant Galaxies. During the opening stages of the conflict, the Allecto was assigned to the borders of the U.R.C. for patrol missions before being recalled to the Rambo colony Javan, where it joined a joint-Cyrandia fleet under Captain Ramniels Ramcelsior of the U.S.S. Majestic.
During the Fourth Battle of Yudumarth, the Allecto fought tooth and nail with the Mortalitas Dreadnought Terror of Stars under the command of Captain Nirndal, though it was heavily damaged by a flanking attack by two Confederate Frigates. Though crippled, coverfire from the USS Majestic allowed the Allecto to escape to fight another day. After being repaired at a stardock over Javan, the Allecto was transferred to the taskfroce led by Ramcard, which included Thel'Vicliquam, where it fought in the Battle of Muunivelle. Though moderately damaged in the conflict, the ship survived to the end of the war.
After the rise of the Empire, the Allecto and its crew remained loyal to the Republic in Exile and later the New Cyrannian Republic. Serving throughout the New Cyrandia Wars and into the dark times of the Second Great Cyrannus War, the crew of the Allecto remained loyal to President Apollo after the Fall of the Twelve Worlds, becoming a key asset to the burgeoning New Republic Remnant.
Launched in 04 BNE, the Republic Star Destroyer Allecto was the fourteenth vessel of its class to be unveiled at the famed shipyards of Cyroenia, and a member of the first batch to be sold to the Navy of the United Republic of Cyrannus. Almost a year after being launched, the Allecto was placed under the command of the young Trucinex captain Nerazachi, who was assigned to defend the Republic's newly established colonies in the Quadrant Galaxies. Under Nerazachi's command, the Allecto proved instrumental in several of the most important battles of the Quadrantian front of the Great Cyrannus War, including the Third and Fourth Battles of Yudumarth.
With the rise of the Galactic Empire of Cyrannus, the crew of the Allecto remained loyal to the ideals of democracy by pledging their loyalty to the so-called Republic in Exile, where Nerazachi found himself under the command of Admiral Laege Shavalera. When the Republic-in-Exile joined the New Cyrannian Republic in 03 NE, the Allecto was rechristened with the C.R.S. registry, and refitted to serve in the newly formed Republic Starfleet. During the subsequent New Cyrandia Wars, the Allecto was dispatched to the distant Borealis Galaxy on a top-secret joint mission between Republic Strategic Intelligence and the Polar Crystal Alliance to destabilise the Empire's hold on the Heleanorian people.
After the end of the conflict, and in the midst of the Cyrannian Cold War, the Allecto was briefly assigned to Fleet Admiral Aver Kuestantine's fleet, and battled the Loron invasion at the Battle of Bragolben Field. The Allecto was damaged during the battle, and was forced to retreat to the nearest Republic starbase for repairs.
During the Second Great Cyrannus War almost a decade later, the Allecto was assigned to Fleet Admiral Willelmus Cretacea's Grand Republic Fleet, though was occasionally deployed independently from Cretacea's task force, such as during the Battle of Achiliquin, when it proved instrumental in the destruction of the Dark Hand—the flagship of the dreaded Phaedric Lord Maethoruin. Several weeks later, having joined Cretacea's fleet, the Allecto fought to defend the Twelve Worlds against an unexpected Imperial invasion which resulted in the fall of Capricaerón and the subsequent collapse of the New Republic.
Refusing to give up the fight against the Empire, Nerazachi rallied his crew and joined Cretacea and Apollo in the formation of the New Republic Remnant, with the Allecto being but one of fourteen vessels which refused to surrender. Fleeing to the Cognalorilos system, Allecto later saw battle against the Great Star Dominion, and remained loyal to the Remnant despite the mass defection which occurred after the death of Admiral Cretacea and the destruction of the flagship Republica.
Nerazachi is a male Trucinex who serves as the commanding officer of the Allecto—a position he's held since the Great Cyrannus War. Nerazachi is a master tactician and a cunning master of war, who serves the New Republic with a zeal rivalled by few in the Starfleet. Loyal to President Apollo, Nerazachi is willing to follow the President to the Chaos Realm and back, should he ask. Nerazachi is often chosen for assignments of great geopolitical importance such as the Battle of Muunivelle and the Borealis Rebellion, which he tends to excel well in, having a healthy interest in politics and the interactions between superpowers.
Selanius is a Libertus who was liberated from a life as a Caprigrox during the Dark Times after being transformed by the Neraida during their invasions of the Confederacy of Allied Systems during the Great Cyrannus War. The former first officer of the Republcia, Selanius was granted the position of first officer by Helo Roslia himself, though is widely suspected to be a candidate for captaincy once the Remnant's fleet grows.
Species: N/A (Artificial Intelligence)
Aible is the personification of the Allecto's artificial intelligence assemblage, taking the form of a young female Ausare. Possessed of the entire sum of galactic knowledge, Aible is a great asset to the crew of the Allecto, and though she would never admit it, cares deeply about each and every member of the crew. Aible's sense of humour is the source of both entertainment and annoyance by the crew, though even those who dislike her would be hard pressed to deny her importance to the running of the ship.
“Man, I hate spaceship fighting. If I could go up to that guy and smash his face, it'd be so much simpler.”
- The Allecto was first mentioned by Dinoman82 as the ship commanded by the "Unidentified Trucinex Captain" in 2011, before being assigned a larger role in future fiction.
