The Tobermoon was an Earthling Cruiser Captained by I. Burton. It was part of the research project in the Vela system. The Tobermoon attempted to return to Earth with news that the Precursor station there was not destroyed. Burton did not survive to give this information; she was killed in a battle with a Slylandro Probe on the way back. The ship itself, however, survived, and is the escort ship that accompanies the SIS to Earth.
