Balance of Judgement

The "Balance of Judgement" was seen in the season one episode "Star-Crossed".

The "Judgement" had started the Restorian movement to bring order to the galaxy from chaos, believing that space travel spread anti-Commonwealth ideas and that only by ending space travel could peace be restored. While "Andromeda" kept it distracted, the "Judgement" was destroyed by 30 missiles launched by inertia from the "Eureka Maru", the missiles floating into the path of the "Judgement" and destroying it. Its avatar, "Gabriel", fell in love with Rommie, but she was forced to kill him when it was discovered that the ship had transmitted itself to Gabriel's body before being destroyed and that it would soon overwhelm him.

Wrath of Achilles

The "Wrath of Achilles" was seen in the season two episode "Knight, Death, and the Devil". The "Achilles" served as the leader of the ships and their AIs in the Tartarus system.

With no raw materials to salvage, the ships were unable to produce the capabilities to defend themselves or leave the system. However, the Nietzscheans would not destroy their "prizes" and instead researched a way to permanently delete an AI from the ship so that they could not reassert themselves. The "Achilles" was wiped clean when the Nietzscheans succeeded in developing and deploying their technology, and was taken over by "The Clarion's Call" avatar, Ryan, who was subsequently appointed the ship's new captain by Dylan.cite episode| episodelink=List of Andromeda episodes|Knight, Death, and the Devil| title=Knight, Death, and the Devil| series=Andromeda] .

Resolution of Hector

The "Resolution of Hector" was seen in the season three episode "Day of Judgement, Day of Wrath". The ship was commandeered by the last remnants of Gabriel which had survived in Rommie and imprisoned her digitally.

The "Hector's" avatar was designed from the same template of the "Wrath of Achilles" and was portrayed by the same actor, Christopher Judge. Christopher's co-star, Michael Shanks, on the television show Stargate SG-1 also reprised his role as Gabriel.
