Vessel Profile
Previous names Electa
Type WarShip
Class Cameron


The SLS Electa was a Cameron-class battlecruiser in service with the Star League Defense Force and which survived the Amaris Civil War. At some point after General Aleksandr Kerensky led the bulk of the surviving SLDF on the Exodus the Electra fell into the hands of ComStar.

Precentor Alain Beresick indicated in conversation with Marshal Morgan Hasek-Davion during Task Force Serpent that the ComStar Explorer Corps had discovered the Electa and a sister ship, the SLS Lady Shandra, mothballed in a Deep Periphery system early in an early expedition, that ComStar believed both ships to have been abandoned by the SLDF during the Exodus, and that ComStar had restored the Electa to service and renamed her the StarSword.[1]

While initially restored to operation, as only one of the two rare Cameron-class vessels controlled by the Order, issues with maintenance and parts in the wake of the Battle of Tukayyid forced ComStar to sacrifice the StarSword to maintain the CSV Invisible Truth. In 3053 Precentor Alain Beresick was transferred to the secret Luyten 68-28 fleet base, bringing his customary efficiency to the cannibalization of the StarSword, eventually receiving command of the Invisible Truth by 3058. [2]


Details of the discovery of the Electa and the Lady Shandra were met with skepticism by Marshal Hasek-Davion;[1] later canon sources establishing the existence of secret former SLDF naval facilities and WarShips controlled by ComStar would seem to cast doubt on Beresick's claims, but no other detail on the discovery of the StarSword is currently available.
