HMS Rigel (BC-591)

Jump to navigation Jump to search

HMS Rigel (BC-591) is a Nike-class Battlecruiser within First Fleet. Commanded by CAPTJG Christopher Vicchitto, Rigel claims Alexandria, VA as her charter city.


Commissioned in 2014 under Captain Eric Schulman[1], Rigel is the newest hull for a crew with a lineage dating back to HMS Artegal. In 2015, command shifted to Captain Ed Wandall[2], then to Captain Alice Fawcett later that year[3], where it remained until mid 2021, when it changed over to her present command team[4]. While under the command of Captain Fawcett, Rigel was assigned to BatCruRon 11, within BatCruDiv 112, where it has remained until this day.[5]

At present, Rigel has declared her home con to be BetaCon in northeastern Pennsylvania, though the crew are actively seeking additional cons to give their patronage. The crew has a strong history of gaming, at present manifesting as monthly gaming nights and D&D at Captain Vicchitto's home. To augment this, they hold monthly virtual ships meetings, of wide and varied topics.
