The Scirocco was heavily damaged in orbit over Ganymede by United Nations Navy forces during the Ganymede Incident. Much of its crew, including its X.O. (Executive Officer) , Lieutenant Sutton, were killed.
Scirocco then moved to Earth where crew were transfered the the MCR embassy on the planet.
- The Syfy website describes the ship as a high speed troop carrier.
- It is unknown what forces initiated the battle in orbit over Ganymede.
- It is also possible that Chaplain Martens was visiting and not normal crew aboard Scirocco. The size of the ship and the ship's crew complement is undetermined.
- A scirocco is a hot wind, often dusty or rainy, blowing from North Africa across the Mediterranean to southern Europe.
- The ship's name is probably a reference to the Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam character Paptimus Scirocco, who commanded a vessel in orbit around Jupiter.
