(Eridonian Loyalists) (Capital) Pathfinder
Legendary Battlecruiser under the command of former Terran War-hero, Captain Ronin Kociero. Pathfinder MKVI is based on an experimental advanced Endeavour-S5A design and is perhaps the most formidible warship in Aquarius.

||Exerpt from Old Federal Archives:
An ancient terran warship, mostly residing in legends and science-fiction in the 3rd millenium. The original Pathfinder-class Armoured Cruiser was developed by the now-defunct Terran Space Research Corporation of the Old Earth, in 2081 A.D, over 2000 cycles prior to currents events in Aquarius. Since that time, following the exploits of her undying Sempiternalis captain, the Pathfinder has been re-fitted and modernised at least six times, with the entire superstructure being replaced with the fifth iteration- instead being based on the Old Federation's highly capable Endeavour-S5A class Battlecruiser.
The Pathfinder is believed to have undergone at least on more major revision since then, but the details are largely unknown.

||Exerpt from Ronin's Kociero's log concerning the Pathfinder:
"A noble ship. Brave, honourable. Changed so many times I'd never have recongised her since the first time I sat in her command chair. But she's all the same inside, same spirit. Hard to describe an attachment to a huge bucket of Citradite and Tritanium alloys, but here I am.
Most captains grow attached to their ships. But Pathfinder, it's like she's grown attached to me. Without me, she's a warrior without eyes. Without her, I'm a warrior without a Sword. And she's one mean motherfucking sword. If I'm going to hell, she'll be my one-way ride."
||Exerpt from CoRE's analysis of the Pathfinder:
Designation: Pathfinder. Type: Battlecruiser. Class: A miss-matched rust-bucket of at least a dozen different designs all rolled into one. But apparently quite capable. This vessel is my home. Ronin has a strong connection with the ship's biomatrix: he's able to interact with the semi-organic neural links to a greater extent than any other biological entity so far. I have written, and re-written countless trillion sub-routines, tailored around this one vessel. I have become, if you like, one and the same with Pathfinder. So much so that a forced disconnection with the vessel would have dire consequencies to my Mind. This doesn't concern me."
