The NTF Boadicea was originally an asteroid in the Deneb system. During a depot raid, a wing from the 53rd Hammerheads picked up an unusual signal and moved to investigate. Their signal turned out to be this half-breed of a shipyard and a really big rock. Shortly afterwards, the asteroid splintered, revealing it's deadly cargo: the NTF Iceni, a unique vessel constructed to the plans of the traitorous Admiral Bosch within the asteroid. Shortly thereafter, the Iceni jumped out and was able to escape the Deneb, easily escaping an unusually poor attempt at blockade.

It's possible to use the Boadicea as a regular asteroid base (ie, to prevent it from breaking up to reveal the Iceni). Using every-time or subsys-guardian-threshold SEXPs, keep its Asteroid01 subsystem from being destroyed, and the Iceni tucked inside will never be revealed. If destroyed-before-mission, this unit also makes great space debris, although remember that debris self-destruct after a few minutes.

Name origin

The Boadicea is named after the queen of an English tribe from an area in modern-day Norfolk called the Iceni. She led a enormous army (estimated at 230,000 warriors), and was beaten by a much smaller Roman force after burning London and two other major settlements to the ground; and annihilating one of their legions in battle.

It's an Iceni with destroyable rocks all over it, not much more to say... has a good amount of Terran Turrets I suppose.


Very, very ugly.


Ugly maybe, but deadly if you set the turrets right. I've seen this thing own some destroyers easily... And it has a lot of missile turrets i think.


Useless piece of crud... except for that destroyer level corvette embedded in it


It looks like a city that a giant crapped on and threw into space.
