The SSV Halifax, named after Earth city Halifax, Nova Scotia, is a Nova Scotia-Class Cruiser in the Systems Alliance Fleet. The IOS, a division of N7, is stationed there. The Halifax began service in 2189 and was built in the Explorer station. The Halifax is a symbol of unity among species, much like the SSV Normandy SR-1†, however, between all council species. The ship is outfitted with a highly advanced FTL Drive and Thanix Cannons. As well as Silaris armor from the asari and experimental tech lab upgrades from the salarians.
