TCS Kirsk
Type Concordia-Class Fleet Carrier
Primary user Terran Confederation

The TCS Kirsk was a Concordia-Class Fleet Carrier that served the Terran Confederation during the Terran-Kilrathi War until its near-destruction in 2663.

The TCS Kirsk was active in the Vega Sector in 2663, by which time the Kilrathi had re-established a presence there. During that year, the Kirsk ventured to Hell's Kitchen, where it was to destroy a Kilrathi starbase.

During that mission, the Kirsk was attempting to covertly slip past Kilrathi patrols in the system, hoping to strike the starbase head-on without resistance. However, the Kilrathi were using a new secret code, which Communications Officer Edmond had attempted to decode. She failed to decipher it correctly, however, and had not realised the Kilrathi were already aware of the presence of the Kirsk. The Kilrathi launched a massive assault on the Kirsk causing massive damage to the carrier. The attack left 2,000 Terran crew members dead and only a handful of survivors.
