History

Launched in 2356 CE, the SFCV Nightfall (BB2-05) had a long career being rotated through the fleets. However, in the mid-2400s, after several failed pirate raids on the penal mines, the Interstellar Patrol petitioned Space Forces Command to establish a system patrol. The Nightfall is the most recent of the vessels chosen to serve as the flagship.
