Technology & Combat Characteristics[]


Regent Invasion[]

USS John Paul Jones was one of the three ships, along with USS Sampson and JDS Myoko, sent to investigate the regent landing. After the aliens used their Pulse Cannon, the destroyer was tasked to fire the warning shot. After firing, the regents retaliated, firing their guns at John Paul Jones. While the Phalanx CIWS defended the ship, it missed one missile, exploding at the right bridge wing of the ship, killing the Commanding and Executive Officers as well as damaging the ship. After Sampson was destroyed, under the command of Hopper, the ship tries to retaliate, but was forced to rescue the sailors of Myoko, after it was sunk. Eventually, the John Paul Jones was destroyed by shredders, but the crew survived, and went on to reactivate the USS Missouri.
