Battle of Kerenza IVEdit
After the Hypatia's fuel tank reached a critical point, they abandoned the ship, leaving it floating in space. Instead, they took the Mao for their further journey.
- Like all the other WUC ships, the Hypatia is named after a famous astronomer: Hypatia of Alexandria. She was the head of the Neoplatonic school in Alexandria, where she taught philosophy and astronomy. She was also a mathematician and inventor.
