|Affiliation||Protectorate of Grayson|
|In Service||19th and 20th Century PD|
In 1903 PD, the Covington was part of the Grayson-Manticoran Combined Fleet under the command of Commodore Wesley Matthews. The ship was damaged in the opening shots of the First Battle of Yeltsin's Star. In the second salvo, the Covington was further damaged.
After both High Admiral Bernard Yanakov and Admiral Raoul Courvosier were killed, Commodore Matthews became the commander of the GMCF. Commander Jason Alvarez relayed information about the Navy of Masada Fleet to Covington and led HMS Madrigal to face the rest of the Masadan Fleet so that Covington and the destroyer Saul could escape.
Battle of Blackbird Edit
Commanded by Commodore Wesley Matthews, Covington went into the Battle of Blackbird with five missile tubes short, but the energy weapons and the sidewall generator had been repaired. During the beginning of the battle, the ship flew in a wedge formation with Saul and Glory occupying the edges, while the Royal Manticoran Navy vessels formed the center of the formation. After witnessing the efficiency of the RMN units, Covington's crew cheered. A pair of Masadan LACs went after the ship, but Covington destroyed them easily.
The Covington was decommissioned when the alliance with Manticore gave the Protectorate access to more modern ship designs. It became a museum ship in orbit over Grayson. (Companion)
