The Temeraire is the second Destroyer in the 14th Battlegroup. As other Titan class vessels in the Blue Planet continuity, she is intended as a replacement for the older Hecate class vessels. Her intended role is to act primarily as a strategic deterrent through her fighter wing. Should the need arise, she is more than capable of acting as a shock-jump vessel, ending fights quickly and decisively through her heavy forward armament.
The Temeraire is named in honour of the British Navy vessels of the same name. The second HMS Temeraire fought at the Battle of Trafalgar alongside Lord Nelson's HMS Victory.
