The TRGS Meridian was a Hippocrates class vessel used by the Tepoheh Raleigh Research Group (TRG) in the Tau Sigma system. The Meridian was engaged in mining research when it was attacked by GTVA forces who believed that the research station was a pirate base. After both sides suffered casualties, the GTVA forces recognized their mistake and allied to defeat a pirate attack a few minutes later. The 212th Silver Scythes escorted a convoy composed of Meridian and its companion TRG ship, the GTFR Haulian, to the Altair jump node so that both could return to their home office. The convoy fought off several waves of mercenaries (believed at the time to be pirates) and briefly sighted the Nyarlathotep in the Tau Sigma-Altair subspace corridor.
