History[]

Meltoria-class battle cruiser in service of the Imperial Guard

Compared to the other types of cruisers, Meltoria is much less frequently seen in front line service. One such ship was under the command of Lieutenant Commander Fommt Berger in a battle against a Gatlantis fleet ("A World I Once Saw"). Another Meltoria-class vessel, EX-178, was caught in a subspace void after a brief failure in its warp core ("Graveyard of the Universe"). Lieutenant General Erich Domel's Domelaze III super dreadnought was routinely escorted by four Meltoria belonging to the 6th Armored Space Division) ("The Wolf from Another Dimension", "Point of No Return"). An Imperial Guard Meltoria were deployed by Hydom Gimleh along with other vessels to intercept the Earth battleship Yamato on its course toward the royal palace on Garmillas ("One Man's War").

  2. Although never mentioned or seen in the show or on mecha sheets, these tubes are clearly visible on all depictions of the vessel
