The Vigilant was a Dauntless Class Light Cruiser that fought in the Gothic War.[1a].

It was captured during the Walpurgis Attack by the Eldar Eclipse Class Cruiser Silent Warrior when its pirate crew boarded the Imperial warship. The Vigilant's new owners then forced its displaced captain to transmit an all-clear signal to a convoy of Penal Legion Imperial Transports en route to Lethe to reinforce the Imperial Guard forces fighting there. This allowed the Silent Warrior to use waves of Eagle Bombers to destroy the entire convoy with impunity as the transports left the planet's atmosphere.[1b]
