Draconia is the flagship of the Draconian Empire in 2491 CE. The ship is one of many of King Draco's star fortresses.


History

While on a fake mission of peace to Earth, Princess Ardala and the ship's commander, Kane, use Draconia to launch Hatchet fighters to disrupt the Earth's food supply lines. This faux peace, along with the deployment of Hatchet fighters, is a prelude to invasion.

En route to Earth, Hatchet fighters intercept Ranger 3 and its preserved occupant, Captain William "Buck" Rogers, bringing the 500 year old relic to Draconia. After reviving and debriefing the occupant, as well as fitting the ship with a microtransmitter, Ranger 3 and Rogers depart from Draconia en route to Earth.

After arriving on Earth, Ardala offers Draconia to the Earth's people as a token of goodwill, claiming it to have the newest and greatest in technologies from the Draconian realm.

After taking advantage of Ardala's desires of power and conquest, Rogers is able to infiltrate the ship. He discovers that the ship is not unarmed as per the Draconian's agreement with the Earth Defense Directorate, carrying the very "pirate" fighters that have harassed the Earth's transport ways. Having a thirst for power, and humiliated by Rogers' clear deceit, Ardala orders Kane to ready Draconia for an all out attack against Earth.

After placing explosive munitions in the "tailpipes" of the Hatchet fighters, Rogers is able to incapacitate Draconia's fighter forces, thus permitting the Defense Directorate to take the offensive against Draconia.
