The MCRN Askia is a warship in the Martian Congressional Republic Navy Fleet.


During the Io Campaign the Askia was a part of a fleet assigned to reinforce the MCRN Hammurabi against the UNN Agatha King. Several months later during the Slow Zone incident the Askia's Captain Chandra Lucas was not onboard, but was on the Xuesen.


It is possible that the Askia is named after Askia Mohammad I emperor of the Songhai Empire in late 15th century North Africa.
