Little is known of the history of the Oberon, but it is known that it fought in the Great War. It was later decommissioned and stripped of most of its useful components and met its fate in a combat evaluation exercise, near the GTD Aquitaine, shortly before a Shivan attack.

Name origin

Oberon was the king of the faeries in Renaissance legend. He has also shown up, in various roles, in various literary and theatrical works, most famously in Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream.
