The Xerxes-class battleship is a class of United Nations Navy (UNN) capital ship. It is considered to be a third-generation battleship, as it represents the third redesign since the buildup of the first conflict between Earth and Mars. Similar to the MCRN's Donnager-class, the Xerxes-class warship is capable of carrying multiple shuttles and corvettes within its hangars.

One of the most significant offensives of the war was the Battle of Thermopylae, where Spartan king Leonidas I and his three hundred soldiers held off the assaults of the Persian army in a valiant last stand.
