The Sakura (†) 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 pirates 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 Sakura served in all engagements in the Pirate Clans 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 Sakura was destroyed in Exofleet’s first engagement of the Neosapien War, the Second Battle of Earth, in an attempt to liberate the Homeworlds. After the war, the Sakura was later rebuilt for the Second Drej War.
