The Crimson Sunrise was the first new High Guard Warship to be built after the First Systems Commonwealth Civil War. The Crimson Sunrise was supposed to be even more powerful than the Andromeda Ascendant. Captain Hunt wanted to arrive in the Andromeda Ascendant but Harper was making several adjustments to the ship when Dylan, Beka, and Tyr left and on the way there, Dylan quoted the Maru saying it was "a bag of bolts". The Crimson Sunrise was under the command of Captain Grissum. Each crew member underwent brain scans and DNA analysis for deception traits to ensure their loyalty. However because of the shortcuts taken in her construction she was destroyed by a rogue comet that struck her Antiproton tanks before she saw service. Adding to the crisis the ship's escape pods lacked the fullerine mesh coating causing them to vent oxygen nearly killing much of the crew that survived the ship's explosion. It was initially thought that a traitorous crew member from the Kenja Pride destroyed her, but this was proven false.
