The SDV Blue Steel (SC1-03) is a Shepherd-class cutter based in the Arc System.


The SDV Blue Steel (SC1-03) was laid down in orbit over Sanctuary, in 2208 CE, as part of an effort to create a number of smaller vessels dedicated to system patrolling. The Blue Steel would launch in 2209 CE, to be assigned to the Hermes Penal Outpost, on the edge of the Arc System, where has been formally staged since 2210 CE. The Blue Steel has had little activity to it's name, primarily focused with assisting civilian vessels.
