HMS Penthesilea was a Homer-class battlecruiser of the Royal Manticoran Navy.

In a battle with a Silesian pirate, the ship received as freak hit that caused a cascading overload in the forward fusion plant; the shockwave from the explosion knocked out the regulators on another plant, eventually causing the ship to be destroyed with all hands.

Following this incident, the entire class was sidelined for two years. Experts from the Bureau of Ships tried to ascertain the cause, but could only come to the conclusion that it was a "one in a million hit". (JIR1)
