History[edit]

The Honey Bee was an Leopard-class DropShip operated by the mercenary unit known as the Killer Bees during the Andurien Secession. In August 3034 the Killer Bees withdrew from their cadre training contract to the Magistracy of Canopus, citing the clause that allowed them to refuse orders that would see the Killer Bees receiving unnecessary damage - the orders in question being to try and fight off the Fifth McCarron's Armored Cavalry, who had landed to recover Andarmax for the Capellan Confederation. Elements of the Killer Bees withdrew from Andarmax aboard the Honey Bee.[1]

The Honey Bee wasn't listed as an active part of the Killer Bees' command by 3067; two Leopard-class DropShips were a part of the Killer Bees at that point in time, the Gall Wasp and the Hornet's Nest, and it may be that the Honey Bee was renamed at some point.[2]
