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 installation built into a large asteroid. After a short bombardment, the asteroid splintered to reveal the NTF Iceni flagship and its captain Admiral Bosch hidden within. The Iceni jumped out before the 53rd could engage and escaped to NTF space.

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 but more professional Roman force after annihilating one of their legions in battle and burning London and two other major settlements to the ground.

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


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


Interestingly, if you play the main campaign the normal way, you will not know the name of this installation unless you target a piece of broken installation or unlock all ships in the Tech Description.


Although destroying the Asteriod 1 subsystem reveals the Iceni inside it, all the other subsystems unquie to the asteriod part of itself DO NOT self-destruct with that subsystems destruction. It doing so in the second mission is all part of the game files. Otherwise, those parts remain there, with some of the asteriod turrets roughly floating away from the ship by several meters.
