Commander: Admiral Koth
Fate: Destroyed by GTVA Colossus

The NTD Repulse was the command vessel of Admiral Koth during his activities at Epsilon Pegasi.

At the end of the Battle for Epsilon Pegasi, the Repulse was ordered to defend two NTF cruisers which came under attack (Feint! Parry! Riposte!). The Admiral made the jump without hesitation and found himself confronted by the GTVA Colossus. The GTVA trap worked impeccably: The Repulse was unable to escape but the Admiral refused to surrender. He ordered his crew to approach the Colossus and impact it using kamikaze attack. Unfortunately for the admiral, the Colossus brought overwhelming firepower to bear and destroyed the Repulse. The death of Admiral Koth and the destruction of the Repulse marked the end of the Liberation of Epsilon Pegasi.


Trivia

According to The FreeSpace Reference Bible, the player's command ship was to be called the Repulse, but this was changed to Galatea during development.
