The Phlegethon was a cruiser which served as a picket in Task Force Piranha, and was the second vessel in Tarentum's service to bear the name. The ship was acquired by Clan Tarentum in 29 ABY when it reorganized its Navy by order of Quaestor Sith Bloodfyre-Tarentae. The reacquired ships were based on an earlier Task Force that served specific purposes for Tarentum, which the House returned to in 29 ABY. Phlegethon, along with her sister ships, rounds out the Task Force's assault capabilities, providing picket and chase against enemy cruisers.
