Early Service Edit
Donaghey's first operation was the Battle of Baalkpan Bay. She was the only one of her class to survive without major damage (Kas-Ra-Ar was sunk, Tolson was badly damaged). Three weeks after the battle, at the beginning of Distant Thunders, she led the squadron of captured Grik vessels that intercepted the four ships of Commander Jenks of the Empire of New Britain.
