UEES Olympus was a carrier class vessel of UEE Navy made famous during the year 2571 when it's commanding officer, a rather ambitious and certainly arrogant Rear Admiral, pursued a band of criminals near the planet of Ashana in the Nul system. The carrier was pulled to the surface by the strong gravity of the planet, crashing and killing nearly everyone on board. Her fighter squadrons, no longer having the protection of their home base, continued fighting until they were eventually destroyed. The crash quickly attracted scavengers, who began to pick the ship clean, until they realized that it was a more pleasant environment than the windswept caves they had previously called home. When the Navy did not dispatch another force to eliminate the wreckage, squatters moved in and turned the Olympus into a town of the same name.
