"The Valiant was the culmination of years of planning and engineering work by some of the best scientists on the planet Gronnd. It was as far beyond the other ships that patrolled the frontier as a robot was beyond an ant."

The Valiant was a ship commissioned to patrol deep space.


The Valiant was built on the planet Gronnd on the outer rim of the galaxy, in order to patrol deep space, which had few Heroes. The builders, the Galactic Conspiracy were distrustful of the Heroes. Aquax was given command of the ship, with Xera as a scientist and Kirch as the head guard. It was built by the planetary governments to hide the fact they were creating Project Sunstorm.

When Xera detected a Brain swarm in space, he left the Valiant to obtain a specimen that turned out to be the swarm leader. It infected Kirch, who became a host for the leader. Brains then took control of all crew members, including Xera, who was to be an ambassador in order to introduce the Brains' social order. The Valiant was then set on a collision course directly with Hero Factory in Makuhero City.

Soon after, Natalie Breez and Daniel Rocka boarded the Valiant in response. Kirch set to capture Rocka, and Breez was almost infected after being led astray by Xera. With Kirch gone, Aquax allowed Preston Stormer on board in order to infect him, however, Aquax was defeated by Xera, as the captain was disobeying Kirch's orders.

Meanwhile, Drop Ships led by Nathan Evo approached the Valiant and began using their tractor beams, stopping the ship. Using the Valiant's firepower, Kirch managed to destroy several Drop Ships before Dunkan Bulk and William Furno boarded the ship, and Stormer set it to head right into the sun of the Makuhero system. Kirch made the trajectory permanent and tried to flee, but was incinerated by the sheer heat outside the Valiant. Stormer then un-infected Aquax, who afterwards helped Bulk stop the Valiant's engines. As a result, the ship's explosive cargo was lung in front of the ship, propelling it backwards away from the star. After the Valiant was saved, the Heroes estimated the repairs would take 18 months before the ship was space-worthy.


The Valiant had full detachments of shuttlecraft and many airlocks. It also featured a bridge and an auxiliary control center, as well as an engineering section. The ship's radar could penetrate almost the whole ship save for the ventilation system. The Valiant also had a self-repairing hull, fixing any breaches after they occurred. It was powered by a tri-nuclear fusion engine, armed with mass drivers and high intensity lasers.


"Rocka had been on spaceships before, though never one quite this big. He didn't like them, and he especially didn't like the Valiant. It was too large, too new, too antiseptic. Its halls felt like they had never heard the sound of a robot's voice. Yes, he was something of a wizard with high tech, but Rocka had a sense of history too. He respected the inventors who had come before, the ones who had made the great breakthroughs with far less to work with than he had. Maybe that was part of the reason a brand-new vessel like this one rubbed him the wrong way: It had no history."
