Illuminae[edit | edit source]
Battle of Kerenza IV[edit | edit source]
The Hypatia was one of three vessels, alongside the Copernicus and Alexander, to ferry refugees off Kerenza IV. Later, after the Copernicus is destroyed and the Alexander overcome with the Phobos Virus, it serves as the only refugee ship in the fleet.
Obsidio[edit | edit source]
After the Hypatia's fuel tank reaches a critical point, they abandon ship, leaving it floating in space. Instead, they take the BeiTech ship Mao for their further journey back to Kerenza IV.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- 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.
