History[edit]

The Triptych Soliloquy was a Mule-class DropShip. Attached to the Potemkin-class troop cruiser Hermes, it was among the ships that joined SLDF General Aleksandr Kerensky on his Operation Exodus. The ship's hold was converted into refugee housing, with prefab plastic sections fitted together into tiers with a central square that could hold several thousand people.

On 27 June 2785 the Hermes was scheduled to host an (inofficial) meeting to address civilian concerns about the fleet’s destination and schedule for arrival. The meeting in fact took place in the hold of the Triptych Soliloquy.

Andery Kerensky was duped into attending the meeting by "Jes Cole" (and implicitly his brother Nicholas Kerensky). Admiral Nicholls delivered a subtly critical speech and other speakers then made a political show of complaining about the particularly poor living conditions on the Triptych Soliloquy. Andery Kerensky was cornered into voicing his sympathies, his words being twisted into a statement of support by Admiral Nicholls.[1]

Andery Kerensky's presence would indeed turn out to have been engineered to orchestrate a rebellion. Some six weeks later the Hermes joined Admiral Votok of the Prinz Eugen in what would become known as the Prinz Eugen Mutiny.
