Orion (Individual Monarch-class DropShip)
The Orion was a Monarch-class passenger DropShip. From 10 August through 30 September 3057 Grayson Carlyle and his senior officers traveled aboard the Orion from Glengarry to Tharkad. Enroute, while docked to the JumpShip Stardancer which was recharging the jump drive in the Thuban system for the final jump to Tharkad, they received a newscast announcing the formation of the Lyran Alliance.
