"This is USM Shuttle Intrepid hailing the freelancers in control of the USG Ishimura, stand by for boarding."
—Captain Amise

The USM Intrepid was an Earth Defense Force shuttle captained by Captain Amise, sent after the Second Aegis VII Incident to recover Marker 3A aboard the USG Ishimura.[1]

Service Record[]

After Julia Copland of the Magpies arrived at the USM Victory, Defense Secretary David Chang ordered a small ship to the origin vector of her ship in the asteroid belt, hoping to find the USG Ishimura. The Intrepid was sent with a small security team consisting of several Marines and Captain Amise. Meanwhile, the Oracles discovered the exact coordinates of the Ishimura thanks to Julia, and arrived on the Planet Cracker before the Intrepid, landing undetected.

After finding the Ishimura, the Intrepid was hailed by Stefan Schneider, who made the crew believe he had the Marker and wanted to make a deal. He convinced them to land in Cargo Bay 4 on Level 5 (4-L5), while in reality he was on the ship's bridge, as he could see from the cameras that the cargo bay was infested with Necromorphs. The Oracles discovered this trap immediately. One intended to warn the Intrepid, but the other opposed, saying that the Marines' deaths would buy them time to reach the bridge before Schneider could leave.

The USM Intrepid landed and the troops and Amise got off the shuttle, finding the cargo bay apparently deserted, but when they dispersed, they were attacked by the Necromorphs. The Necromorphs slaughtered the Marines, and only Amise managed to get back to the shuttle. He ordered the pilot to take off but found him killed by a Slasher, who then killed the Captain immediately.[1] The Intrepid was left in the cargo bay presumably until the Ishimura was fully cleared of Necromorphs and brought to Titan Station.
