History[edit]

The Swift Justice was an Aegis-class WarShip which in 3062 was a part of the Com Guard First Independent Squadron based in the Free Rasalhague Republic in support of the Twelfth Army.[1] The CSV Swift Justice remained in service with ComStar as at 3067,[2] but was subsequently deployed on the abortive Case White attack on Terra in March 3068[3] where it was observed by its sister vessel, the CSV Righteous Fury, to be firing on the Potemkin-class cruiser CSV Vision of Truth—the Vision of Truth already suffering internal damage from sabotage[4]—before being savaged by three internal explosions and appearing to be rendered nonfunctional.[5]

The Swift Justice wasn't salvaged by the Word of Blake[6] and wasn't reported to have survived in ComStar service[7] indicating that the Swift Justice was destroyed during Case White.

Notes[edit]

All ComStar WarShips that had participated in Case White, save for the Invisible Truth, were listed missing and presumed destroyed,[3] although the Word of Blake were later discovered to have salvaged and restored the Congress-class frigate Hollings York and the Righteous Fury to active service in their fleet by 3076[6] and a further three former ComStar WarShips - the Essex-class destroyer WoBS Deathblow, the Dante-class frigate WoBS Narbonne and the Suffren-class destroyer WoBS Manchester - were all undergoing repairs and operational enough to participate in the Blakist defense of Terra in 3078.[8]
