|The ExoCarrier Resolute|
The Resolute in orbit around Io
|Known Captains||Matthew Marcus|
The Resolute was the largest, most powerful ExoCarrier in the ExoFleet during the first few years of the Second Neosapien War and served as Admiral Winfield's personal flagship. Unfortunately, she was also commanded by Matthew Marcus, an incompetent captain who ultimately led the ship to destruction.
She fought with distinction in every campaign against the Pirate Clans and the Neosapiens until Captain Marcus mutinied against Admiral Winfield and led the Exo-Fleet into battle against a Neo-Sapien fleet twice its size. The engagement fared poorly for the Exo-Fleet from the start. Faced with imminent defeat, Marcus chose to stay with the ship while the crew evacuated in lifeboats. Arming all remaining warheads, he steered the grievously wounded flagship toward the Neo-Sapien battle lines, its destruction generating an enormous shockwave that obliterated several enemy ships.
In spite of her destruction, she is present at the opening scene of Episode 49. That means she was probably rebuilt, but she was no longer Exo-Fleet flagship.
Equipped with a plethora of E-frame hangars, laser batteries, and fusion torpedo launchers, the Resolute could deliver a staggering amount of firepower to multiple targets. As the personal command ship for Admiral Winfield, the Resolute also served as the tactical nerve center for the entire fleet. It was roughly 830 meters long.

Resolute I History
The Resolute Was Already on Active duty and serving a deployment in 2119 when the Home World Congress Declared War on The Pirate Clans of Saturn. The Pirate Clan War was in response to Jonas Simbacca’s Pirate Clan pillaging a civilian ore freighter , the Danube which resulted in the death of one of its two crew members. The Resolute responded to the distress call from the Danube and launched a boarding party to investigate its wreckage. In addition to the death of the Danube crew member an entire Exo-Fleet Work Crew was killed when a booby trap left by the Pirates was accidentally triggered. The Resolute under the command of Matthew Marcus , served in all engagements in the Pirate Clan War including the the Battle Of The Asteroid Belt And The Battle Of Enceladus. In The First Engagement of The Brief Conflict , The Exo-Fleet was ambushed by the entire Pirate Fleet using their Cloaking Devices to give them an advantage over the more powerful yet slow maneuvering Exo-Fleet. Although their surprise was absolute , The Exo-Fleet was able to fight off hordes of Pirate Fighters and Battle their way out of the Ambush.
The Prate Clan War abruptly Ended When The Neo-Sapien Commonwealth Attacked and Conquered The Home Worlds , violating their Disarmament treaty they signed after the Neo-Sapien Revolt of 2069 A.D. In Response The Exo-Fleet turned its full attention to freeing the Home Worlds from Neo-Sapien Oppression. The Resolute , though the strongest ship of the Exo-Fleet, didn’t serve very long in the Neo-Sapien War. It Fought In The Second Battle Of Earth , The Second Battle Of Venus and The Third Battle Of Earth. The Resolute received notoriety from 2119-2120 for the mutiny against Admiral Winfield and In Incompetence Of Its Captain , Matthew Marcus. Captain Marcus , like the other Captains Of The Heavy Exo-Carriers were over confident in their ships Abilities. Captain Marcus was often reluctant to use the Resolute’s Compliment of E-Frames In Combat as well as Never seeing their Tactical Advantage. Their approach led him to believe that if he could take over the Exo-Fleet , He would no doubt Liberate The Home Worlds. This Thinking Would Ultimately lead to the Destruction of The Resolute in The Third Battle Of Earth.
