The Recon Cruiser Cortez (3) is a pre-First Bug War starship of the United Citizen Federation fleet. Considered very modern at the time, the Cortez was in service thirty years before the war.


After the discovery of the Arachnids on Klendathu, Cortez was sent to recon and study them. Probes were launched by the ship and a shuttle with Mobile Infantry squad landed on planet to investigate a crashed probe. They were immediately attacked by Warrior Bugs and were forced to evacuate and return to Cortez. With its shuttle reboarded with the surviving members, Cortez left the system to return to Earth.[Issue needed]
