Exodus was one of four state-of-the-art cruisers purchased by the Navy of the Iron Throne for the Eighth Fleet with funds garnered through Operation Tempest Bravo. The cruiser was named in honor of the pivotal events of the Exodus which led to the Brotherhood's modern era. With construction begining in 20 ABY, Exodus and her sister ships were completed two years later at the Kuat Drive Yards facility at Xa Fel in the Kanchen Sector.
Exodus operated under Task Force 62's Dark Star Strike Group as a cruiser capable of securing and denying large sectors of space while planetary assault was underway.
