HMS Penelope (BC-585) is a Nike-class Battlecruiser within First Fleet. Commanded by CAPTSG John Rebori, Penelope claims New York, NY as her charter city.
In September of 2014 Penelope commissioned in First Fleet out of Fishkill, NY under the command of Captain of the List Michael Spath. This was a downsizing from HMS Chimera due to officer requirements; said LAC Carrier was subsequently assigned to the Active Reserve. HMS Penelope operated indepenedently for just over a year, when in October of 2015, she was incorporated into the newly-established Battle Cruiser Division 112 (BatCruDiv 112), a subunit of Battlecruiser Squadron 11; her operating partner, HMS Rigel took Flag position, while the pair of battlecruisers were screened by HMS Snow Leopard.
In July 2016, command shifted to then-Bosun John Rebori, who was breveted to Captain, Junior Grade. Penelope has remained so since, making her one of the longest contiguously-serving vessels in the fleet at, as of this writing, nearly a decade. HMS Penelope holds monthly-to-bimonthly virtual meetings, wherein the crew meets up to discuss a variety of topics.
