Battle at Io Edit
The destroyer survives the battle between the groups nearly undamaged. Under orders from Captain Richard Tseng, it resupplies the Rocinante with torpedoes and PDC ammunition right after the battle. Also, provides 2000 explosive rounds for Gunny Bobbie Draper's power armor as requested by Captain James Holden.
Crewmember Lieutenant Graves is mentioned by name, having a distinctively girlish young voice on the radio.
The Sally Ride also appeared in “Cibola Burn ”.
The Sally Ride is named after the first female US Astronaut.
It seems notable that a Martian warship is named after a civilian pre-colonisation astronaut from Earth.
