The Andromeda Ascendant is the flag ship of the Commonwealth and is led by Dylan Hunt. When the second in charge betrayed Dylan, the ship entered the Event Horizon of a black hole. In stayed in statis until the ship was pulled free by the Eureka Maru who had wanted to loot the goods. Whilst the ship was in stasis, time passed very slowly on board the ship and nothing changed whilst everything out side did. The ship has three avatars of Rommie, an onscreen version, a holographic form and a robot form which was built by Seamus Harper. The name Andromeda comes from the constellation Andromeda which is also the name of a galaxy that is on a collision course with the milky way.
