The splinter OPA faction uses it to blockade colony ships from entering the gate system. It's captained by Michio Pa and her XO, Evans Garner-Choi. The Connaught, while nowhere near as deadly as the Donnager-class ships, is more than capable of deterring and scaring the defenseless colony vessels.The main crew is part of a marriage group referred to as a "ketubah". The Connaught ketubah has seven members. The ship is their home.
The Connaught is also supplied with a complimentary boarding/assault team that is charged with raiding and subduing the colony ships that surrender.
The Connaught was destroyed by the Free Navy in the battle over Titan.
