The Destiny Ascension is an asari dreadnought and flagship of the Allied Fleet. It is a starship of stunning power; according to a volus visitor, it has almost as much firepower as the rest of the asari fleet combined, rivaling the Galactic Empire's Executor-class star dreadnought. The Ascension is currently commanded by the asari Matriarch Lidanya. The Ascension is four times the size of the largest human ship, and boasts a crew of nearly 10,000. It can be seen passing the windows on the Wards while people gather around to watch.
