UEES Tiburo (PCG-3855) is a first generation (Flight I) Aegis Hammerhead destroyed in 2782 in an accident. It was the second active duty Hammerhead loss. In 2782, a commercial hauler serving a combat group suffered a thruster malfunction and collided with the UEES Tiburo while undergoing refuel/rearm operations. Three were killed aboard the merchant transport and a board of inquiry ultimately placed blame on Tiburo’s commanding officer for failing to recognize a supposedly audible proximity warning. The incident generated long-term mistrust from some naval officers who believed the crew blameless and lead to the Navy’s request for major sensor changes in the Flight II model.[1]

Trivia

  • The UEE Military chose to name the initial wave (Flight I) of Hammerheads after sea life from around the Empire.
