|The GTF Apollo|
The GTF Apollo was the mainstay Terran fighter used during the Great War. It was the easiest fighter to use, so novice pilots found themselves first in the seat of the Apollo. After the development of the GTF Ulysses, the Apollo was destined to "collect dust" (FreeSpace Reference Bible).

Command Brief Animation
Son of Zeus and Leto, and twin brother to Artemis, the Greek deity Apollo is among the most relevant ones in Aegean and italic mythology. The character of Apollo is linked to various forms of art, such as poetry, dance and music, as well as particular skills such as healing and archery. He is mostly known, however, for its ties to the Sun and the use of a golden chariot drawn by swans. Late in Ancient Greek history, Apollo as a deity was merged with the character of Helios.
