"The Dark Aster must not reach the ground!"
Irani Rael[src]

The Dark Aster was a three mile wide Accuser Warship that served as a flagship under Ronan the Accuser's command.

"Ronan's located the Power Stone. I'm dispatching you to his ship."
Thanos to Gamora and Nebula[src]

As an Accuser, Ronan was given an Accuser Warship for his personal use.[1] Upon rejecting the treaty between the Kree Empire and Nova Empire, Ronan embarked on a campaign to destroy Xandar, traveling the galaxy and butchering many Xandarians. Shortly after, Ronan struck a deal with the Mad Titan Thanos, who offered to destroy Xandar if Ronan located and retrieved an object known as the Orb.[2] Upon locating the Orb on Morag, Ronan informed Thanos, who in turn dispatched his daughters Gamora and Nebula on to the Dark Aster to provide Ronan assistance.[3]

"Ronan does not make the surface. Rocket will lead a team to blow a hole in the Dark Aster's starboard hull. Then, our craft and Yondu's will enter."

Ronan, in possession of the Power Stone, attacked Xandar in order to destroy the planet. In a fierce battle involving the Nova Corps and Yondu Ravager Clan, the ship was trapped by an energy field, which Ronan destroyed, and eventually brought down to the planet's surface, where it was destroyed.[2]
