Felicia III was a combination freighter and personnel transport, registered as an independent carrier out of Yarrow in the Grafton Sector, but in actuality owned by the Jessyk Combine of Mesa.

In 1919 PD, the ship, listed as carrying three thousand economy-rate passengers, was in orbit around Erewhon, while its crew spent four days on The Wages of Sin. It was later discovered that the Felicia III was actually a slaver, carrying eight thousand genetic slaves from Manpower Incorporated's breeding station on Jarrod bound for Verdant Vista. While at Erewhon, the ship was seized by Masadan terrorists led by Gideon Templeton. It was only a short while later that Victor Cachat ended the Masadans' control of the ship with the help of Erewhon and the Audubon Ballroom, and used it in the liberation of the Verdant Vista.

Later renamed the Hope by the freed slaves of Torch, she was loaned to the Maya Sector Detachment of the Solarian League Navy Frontier Fleet to transport all Mesan citizens that wanted to leave the planet. (CS1)
