The Pegasus was originally developed as a ship to defend the Warlocks, but was retrofitted to serve another purpose in Operation Phoenix. The Pegasus replaced the Olympus as a small, easily produced yet effective battleship.

The Pegasus, despite her small size, is very effective in battle. With two GED cannons, she can output enough energy to destroy any attacker with one shot, although it does take longer to recharge than those on the Gemini class Strike Dreadnought.

The Pegasus uses missiles, like the Warlock, to attack her targets. These missiles are launched from Gravimetric Mag Tubes, missile tubes outfitted with electromagnetic coils. These electromagnetic coils pull the missile forward at up to 228,570,277,040,000 m/s2. The Millipede Manoeuvring Grid is used to speed the missile up to 175,000,000 m/s, as well as aim the missile in any vector from the ship.

The Pegasus carries two types of missiles, Tactical Attack Missiles which are dumbfire and have a fission warhead with a 200 megatonne yield. The second type of missile is the Low Yield Missile a dumbfire missile with a 5 megatonne yield fission warhead. The missile launching superstructure also houses the particle drive for the gravimetric/particle hybrid engine system.

The Pegasus also employs a new weapon, the Tactical Penetrator. The Tactical Penetrator is a dumbfire weapon fired from the Tactical Missile Gravimetric Mag Tubes, it is the same size as a Tactical Missile but caries no warhead. Instead it has a sharp, square based piece of armour, through which a current is passed into a resistor. The edge is superheated and, when it comes into contact with an enemy's hull, melts and punctures a hole in their armour. The decks are then exposed to space, sucking the atmosphere out of the ship and killing all people on board.

The Pegasus is based on the prototype designed by Colonel Havco. Pictured is the EAS Callisto, the first Pegasus put into service. The Calisto is outfitted with Vindicator class Railguns and Tactical Missiles.
