Lantean military general who was honored by his people, who named an Ancient warship after him. The vessel was likely damaged in a battle with the Wraith. It was stored on Taranis for thousands of years and was eventually renamed Orion by John Sheppard, who thought the name "Hippaforalkus" too ridiculous.
