The Newton (†) 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 Newton served in all engagements in the Pirate Clan War including the Battle of the Asteroid Belt and Battle of Enceladus.
The Pirate Clan 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 Newton served in the first two engagements in the Neosapien War including the Second Battle of Earth and the Second Battle of Venus. During the Second Battle of Venus, the Newton suffered severe damage by Neosapien E-frames and Fighters but was ultimately destroyed by the GRAF Shield. It is only one of two ships in the Exofleet to ever be destroyed by a GRAF Shield. The Newton was rebuilt after the war for the next war with the Drej.
