Operation History[]

The IB TXMP is well known around the Venipere System for its ability to scare off the Intergalactic Pirates in the region. Pirate ships tended to be too fast for the standard cannons, but the salvos travel through space fast enough to catch them, hence being able to destroy pirates easily.

849th Imperial Year[]

The IDOSS Disaster sets out on its first journey to seek out a pirate command ship. It hunts the command ship and finds itself in the enemy armada. The IB TXMP fired a few rounds and destroyed the command ship, while the remaining ships fled for their lives. However, on the return trip back home, the Disaster suffers a system malfunction and the fore blaster explodes. Later back home on Veniphon the ship is repaired. The blasters are then upgraded for safety precautions.
