Before its cross-over, it was mainly carrying passengers such as preachers, pastors, philosophers, poets, and civilians, including Annushka Volovodov and Hank Cortez. Also aboard was Tilly Fagan whose husband sponsored the "dog and pony show" cruise to the Ring.

Yeoman Jin Ichigawa provided Anna the tour when she initially boarded.
