The New Dawn was the naval vessel of the Rogue Trader Elucia Vhane and her Elucidian Starstriders.

Gifted to the Vhane Dynasty for centuries, the New Dawn spearheaded the Starstriders mandate by Roboute Guilliman to tasked find new uncorrupted worlds for the Imperium to colonize. After asking how much she would be paid for her service, Vhane agreed and used her fleet of ships to begin searching for these new worlds. She eventually discovered the world of Arcadia Nihilus and brought forth the first wave of colonists to populate the world. However, while returning with more colonists, the Geller field of Vhane's flagship, the New Dawn, failed due to the sabotage of Sanistasia Minst and when her fleet emerged near Arcadia Nihilus, she discovered the taint of Nurgle had infected her ship. The New Dawn began to show signs of corruption, as parts of the ship turned into flesh, but worse still a large part of Vhane's crew on the New Dawn became corrupted Gellerpox Infected. These corrupted crew members then began attacking the New Dawn's few uncorrupted survivors and as her beloved ship fell to mayhem, Vhane led a small group of her followers in starting the New Dawn's self-destruction sequence. Once it began, Vhane and the few other survivors left, escaped to Arcadia Nihilus aboard Drop pods before the New Dawn exploded. [2]
