The Galedon Explorer was one of the first three Kyushu-class frigates to enter service with the Draconis Combine, as the DCS Galedon Explorer and an active part of the Combine black water navy by late 3058 alongside the DCS Dieron Star and DCS Pride of New Samarkand.
By 3067 a number of Kyushu-class WarShips had been lost in action, but the Galedon Explorer continued to serve the Draconis Combine Admiralty. The Galedon Explorer was destroyed in the Galedon system in the opening stages of the Jihad by Clan Snow Raven when a Snow Raven naval star struck at the world in 3068.
