The Homage was a Giant-class cargo ship.
The ship carried minerals from the Confederate fringe world of Pridewater to Tarsonis. The foremen of Pridewater were allies of the Umojan Protectorate and the Sons of Korhal, and agreed to replace the regular crew with an equal number of Sons of Korhal soldiers as part of an anti-Confederate operaton.
Brock stole the Homage and used it to escape from Tarsonis with Sarah Kerrigan and a ghost prisoner following their disastrous operation against Tarsonis' Ghost Academy. It was picked up by the rebel ship Hyperion.
