Full Moon

Full Moon
Vessel Profile
Type WarShip
Class Potemkin


Originally a WarShip of Clan Wolf operating in the Clan Homeworlds, the Potemkin-class cruiser Full Moon sided with Clan Wolf-in-Exile after the Refusal War against Clan Jade Falcon which took place in 3057.[1][2] It brought lower-caste Clan members from the Clan Homeworlds to join the Wolf-in-Exile forces after Khan Phelan Ward led his forces to Arc-Royal.[1][2]

It was subsequently assigned to the 13th Wolf Guards Cluster (The Wolf Spiders) in the Clan Wolf-in-Exile touman, as reported on 1 January 3058.[3]

The Full Moon had the distinction of being the only Wolf-in-Exile WarShip to survive the Jihad.[4] It remained in service through 3085.[5]

However, Clan Wolf-in-Exile found they lacked the industrial capacity to properly maintain the aging vessel, as no functional shipyards remained in the Lyran Commonwealth that could service WarShips. At some point between 3085 and 3145 the Full Moon was sold off to another Clan, and was subsequently broken down for parts.[6]
