The Galactic Terran Destroyer (GTD) Hades was a warship of the class of the same name during and after the Great War. The Hades was an effort by Galactic Terran Intelligence (GTI) to utilize stolen Shivan technology and combine it with Terran technology. Disagreement from the side of the Galactic Terran Alliance (GTA) led to the Hades Rebellion, during which the Hades was destroyed by two squadrons of GTA fighters and bombers and the GTC Orff.

FS1 Tech Room Description
Nothing much is known about the GTD Hades. It seems to be the GTI's top project. We believe the goal of the project is to recreate the SD Lucifer.
The GTD Hades should be considered a Class A threat.
FS2 Tech Room Description
The GTD Hades was a fusion of Terran and Shivan military technologies. It was constructed by Galactic Terran Intelligence (GTI), a rogue branch of the GTA. In 2335, GTI leaders sought to overthrow the provisional GTA government established in Delta Serpentis. After the defeat of the GTI and the destruction of the Hades, the GTA classified the details of this research at level Omega. There are rumors that the Alliance has attempted to reconstruct the Hades to learn more about the GTI's activities. These reports have yet to be confirmed by government sources.
In Greek mythology, Hades was the ruler of the Greek Underworld. Hades, along with his brothers Zeus and Poseidon defeated the Titans and claimed rulership over the universe, dividing the world among themselves. The Roman name for Hades is Pluto.
