HMS L'Imperieuse was a destroyer of the Royal Manticoran Navy. She was called "old Imp" by her crew.

Service record Edit

She was sent to the Solarian League space before the First Havenite-Manticoran War. The ship was destroyed by the Havenite heavy cruiser PNS Rienzi in a treacherous surprise attack in the Air System. Two of the ships cutters with survivors and lifeboats were also destroyed by the Havenites.

The pinnace with thirty-seven saved crewmembers was taken to the planet Hope by the neutral merchant ship Jerobahm. They all volunteered to crew HMS Ajax (the lent Melungeon Navy vessel Colonel Arabi) under the command of Hakon Nessler, Earl of Greatgap. (HHA1.2: AGT)
