The Borealis (†) was a ship in the Exofleet of the Escort Exocarrier class.
The Borealis was called into active duty in 2119 A.D. when the Homeworld Congress declared war on the Pirate Clans of Saturn. The Pirate Clans War was in response to Jonas Simbacca's Pirate Clan pillaging a civilian ore freighter, the Danube, which resulted in the death of one of its two crew members. In addition to the death of the Danube's crew member, an entire ExoFleet work crew was killed when a booby trap left by the pirates was accidentally triggered. The Borealis served in all engagements in the Pirate Clans War including the Battle of the Asteroid Belt and Battle of Enceladus.
The Pirate Clans War abruptly ended when the Neosapien Commonwealth surprise attacked and conquered the Homeworlds, violating their disarmament treaty they signed after the Neosapien Revolt of 2069 A.D. and the First Drej War of 2106 AD. In response, the Exofleet turned its full attention to freeing the Homeworlds from Neosapien oppression. The Borealis was destroyed in Exofleet’s first engagement of the Neosapien War, the Second Battle of Earth. It sustained crippling damage early in the battle, losing its main guns. The Borealis was sustained for a period of time as other ships provided a close support field of fire. It was inevitably destroyed as the fighting was fierce and unrelenting. The Borealis was later rebuilt after the war for the Second Drej War.
