While being chased by Ogami, the Maru is saved by a large ship that is primarily a giant engine. They take the Maru on board and reveal the ship to be the Bellerophon, a long lost starship from Earth.
Did You Know?
Tony Todd, who plays the Captain of the Bellerophon, also played several characters in Gene Roddenberry's other major science fiction world: Star Trek. The Bellerophon itself is mentioned as having an almost identical mission to the original Enterprise (to go where no man has gone before, seek out new life, etc). Furthermore, the officers and crew aboard the Bellerophon wear uniforms highly reminiscent of those in the modern Star Trek realm, even including the colors of the various disciplines (Command, Security, Science, etc) See more

Any sign of the Maru?
A few hull fragments and missile vapour. Not enough to imply she was destroyed.
Okay, so the Maru arrived early, tangled with some unidentified bad guys, which begs the question...
Where's Dylan? Where's our crew?
