The Lancers Hope is a Glorious Heritage Class Commonwealth vessel. She is mentioned by the Andromeda Ascendant.


In Season 4, the Lancer's Hope was shown as being destroyed by a Nietzchean fleet around Almagest. Its courier pilot managed to contact Andromeda and Dylan Hunt chose to investigate. When the Andromeda Ascendant arrived at the planet, there was no sign of the Lancer's Hope or any of her wreckage in orbit, and none of the wreckage was found on the planet's surface from the ship. It is unknown what happened to the ship in reality, if anything.


  • A lancer refers to a cavalry unit that used lances in combat.
