The Erewhon Navy was the naval defense force of the Republic of Erewhon.

Erewhonese ships used the prefix ENS. (HH9)


The Erewhon Navy was possessed two major areas of responsibility: the defense of the Erewhon System, the Erewhon Wormhole Junction, and the security of the surrounding area and the security of the Hennesy Terminus of the Manticore Wormhole Junction during its membership in the Manticoran Alliance. In the latter years of the First Havenite-Manticoran War, the Erewhon Navy was almost entirely relegated to a system defense role in the Erewhon System however. (HHA4.6: TSotS,CS1,infodump)


Havenite-Manticoran Wars[]

Due to its possession of ships of the wall in the initial phase of the First Havenite-Manticoran War, the Erewhon Navy was the second strongest Allied navy at the time. However, the Erewhon Navy didn't posses significant numbers of those ships and was subsequently supplanted in that status within the Manticoran Alliance by the expanding Grayson Space Navy by 1911 PD, when the Allied Eighth Fleet was organized. (HH7)

In the early 1910s PD, the Erewhon Navy had a wall of twelve dreadnoughts, temporary detached to the Allied Eighth Fleet (HH7)

Post Havenite-Manticoran Wars Expansion[]

Around 1920 PD, in cooperation with the Maya Sector, the Erewhon Navy began a build up of pod-capable ships of the wall and the construction of lighter units directed by Admiral Alexander Chapman and Glenn Horton. (CS2)



  • an Admiral appeared during Congo affair, Admiral McAvoy was mentioned later as person in charge (CS1, CS2)
  • some officer candidates were students at the Royal Manticoran Naval Academy, when the Republic of Erewhon was member of the Manticoran Alliance (SI1)
  • some officers probably were detached to Royal Manticoran Navy as liaison officers[1]
  • some personnel was detached to the Manticoran Alliance operations, including (HH7 - HH9):

Technical Advancement[]


  • Erewhonese warships were never designed to handle the all-up MDM and didn't have the fusion-powered version of the new missiles. Because of those facts, Erewhonese MDMs were bigger and less capable than the current Manticoran version.

Interial Compensators[]

  • The EN didn't upgrade its compensators at the same frantic rate that star nations whose fleets were going to be engaged on frequent operations did. Erewhonese inertial compensators were at least three generations behind Alliance technology deployed around 1918 PD. As such, the best technology the Republic of Erewhon was able to deliver as working models with supporting tech manuals to the Republic of Haven was probably equivalent to the Alliance's technology around 1914 PD.
