History[edit]

The Marksman was a Fortress-class DropShip owned and operated until at least 3067 by the mercenary unit known as The Medusans. The Marksman was the second ship within the First Division, serving alongside the Bellerophon, an Excalibur-class DropShip, under the overall command of Commodore Trevylyan Naper.[1]

When the Medusans attempted to defend New Syrtis from a Capellan strike force in 3069, the Marksman was one of the ships involved in launching a deep space ambush against the Capellans. While the Medusans managed to destroy a Leopard and a Triumph and damaged a number of other Capellan DropShips, the mercenaries took damage in turn from the Capellan forces led by the Impavido class WarShip CCS Zhejiang, which was escorting the strike force. Marksman avoided taking significant damage during the battle, and by the end of 3071 was one of only three Medusan ships to be fully battleworthy.[2]
