Golden Hind
Vessel Profile

The SLS Golden Hind served in the Star League Defense Force's Seventh Fleet in the twenty-eighth century.


The SLS Golden Hind was the winner of the Best WarShip category of the 2692 Martial Olympiad.[1]

In 2739, one of the aerospace fighter squadrons stationed aboard the Golden Hind was the 711th Fleet Interceptor Squadron, one of the units within the Seventh Fleet's aerospace forces, commanded by Vice Admiral Lucien Peterson. Peterson was aboard the Golden Hind when a shuttle pilot named Joan Brandt engaged in a reckless, unauthorized, and highly skilled mock combat exercise involving two fighters from the Free Worlds League. Peterson intervened in the disciplinary proceedings against Brandt, transferring Brandt to the 711th and beginning what would be a meteoric career for Brandt, culminating in her overall command of one of the three theaters of Operation CHIEFTAIN during the Hegemony Campaign.[2]

In 2765, the SLS Golden Hind was serving as the command vessel of the Seventh Fleet under the command of Admiral Salman Venizelos; the SLS Golden Hind was stationed in the Free Worlds League region of the Star League at this point, and would have deployed into the Magistracy of Canopus alongside the rest of the fleet when the Periphery Uprising began.[3]
