The Inquisitor was an Achilles Class battleship in the United Space Command's First Fleet. First launched around the year 2589, the Inquisitor was no stranger to combat. In fact, it was very nearly destroyed on her maiden voyage traveling between Earth and Eurodance in the after fighting of the Second Nuclear War. Since then, the Inquisitor had been through almost 192 missions, most of which were resupply runs and escort missions in the Armstrong System. The Inquisitor's next biggest conflict came when it was dispatched to quell the civil uprising of the Jovian moons of Titan, Io, and Ganymede in 2687. Though the Inquisitor made through without extensive damage, her commander, General Kate Reynolds, was killed. The Inquisitor sat in Space dock for the next few years until she was reassigned a new commander, Admiral Gregory Armstrong, on March 2, 2715. Since then, the Inquisitor has done numerous Black OP missions for the Office of Space Intelligence. Most of which are still highly classified so I cannot go into them. However, in late 2720, the Inquisitor was tasked in delivering the first four 'prototype' H5 Interceptor Fighters from Paradise Ranch Air Force base (Area 51) to Harmony's Donald Trump Air Force/Marine Corps Joint Military Base. During the attack on Harmony by the Arabic Republic, the Inquisitor was the only USC starship that was not involved in the battle, nor was it damaged, despite having been in orbit at the time. There have been many theories about why this is. According to Admiral Armstrong's log of the date, the Inquisitor was called away on an important mission by former Fleet Admiral, Jude Miles, however, Admiral Miles commented that he knew of no such mission. If this true, than Admiral Armstrong acted without or against orders and then covered it up. Though, a formal investigation was issued to get to the bottom of this on May 27, 2721, Armstrong was left in command pending a full investigation. During this time, the Inquisitor returned to doing mundane supply runs to any colonized world under the UNF flag. It wasn't until the Spring of 2725, that the Inquisitor was given a high priority mission to investigate or assist in the evacuation of the Russian-controlled planet, Aurora by request of Russian President, Dimitri Sokolov.
Upon investigating the regional space around Aurora, Armstrong and his fleet discovered what looked like 'alien' spacecrafts in geostationary orbit around the planet; and even though Article 3, Section 5 of the 'First Contact' Act forbid any violent action against an alien species per starting an interstellar conflict, Armstrong disobeyed direct order to withdraw and opened fire on the unknown ships. In the minutes that followed, Admiral Armstrong and everyone on board the Inquisitor and 39 ships of First Fleet were all killed.
