Midian Breach is a Glorious Heritage Class vessel redone as a prison transport that was commandeered by the Collectors to test Dylan Hunt. ("Fear Burns Down to Ashes")


The Midian Breach was left adrift after the cataclysmic Battle of Enga's Redoubt, the Drago-Kazov homeworld, and was captured soon after. It was turned over to the rogue faction of Collectors, who removed the Slipstream Core and other key systems. The vessel would be used to test Captain Dylan Hunt to see if he could overcome his worst fears. The Midian Breach was cast adrift near the event horizon of a Black Hole, its Artificial Intelligence deleted and power generation systems crippled along with its Antiproton reactor which was drained of most of its power but captain Hunt tried a rather unorthodox procedure to boost the core's power. The procedure was to inject oxygen from the hangar decks and use the deep cold of space to start a power surge to start the engines but the end result was one engine destroyed and oxygen seeping through the hull which accelerated the decent into the black hole. The Midian Breach was eventually destroyed by the point singularity and the reactor core, but Captain Hunt escaped using a Slipfighter in its hanger decks.


  • Midian is a location used several times in religious stories.


Dylan: The Midian Breach? It's a prison ship. Heading into a black hole. Excellent. Midian Breach, this is Captain Dylan Hunt of the Andromeda Ascendant. Counter your drift into the black hole. Or don't. Shipwide. All decks, report. All decks, report. Is there anyone on this ship? Last egg in the crate. The story of my life.
