CSV Aegis

The GSV Aegis (GUARDIAN Space Vessel Aegis) is a G.U.A.R.D.I.A.N. Shield-class starship. A goliath dreadnought, her length stretches past an entire kilometre, hosting an impressive array of defenses and an armament that could rustle the feathers of almost any opposing tactician. However, it is not intended to function as a combat vessel.

Housing G.U.A.R.D.I.A.N. Commander-in-Chief and Commanding Officer August Emerson, the Aegis' role is to provide support to the CSV Gandiva, CSV Muramasa, CSV Libra and CSV Avalon. It functioned as the primary base of operations for all Union diplomatic affairs until the colony of Haven was set up in mid-2186. It now serves as the flagship of G.U.A.R.D.I.A.N.'s First Fleet.

Aftermath

August Emerson and the crew of the CSV Aegis have seen the rise of their own vessel into a cultural hub, almost doubling the vessel in size to a cross between colony ship and space station. A civilian marketplace, as well as the ‘Second Home’ of the Citadel Council is housed on the vessel, strengthening the bond between the organizations.
