The Naval Reserve lost two WarShips during the Burrock Absorption, including the former flagship, Carmine Justice.[1] In 3064 it lost the Blood Fury in the York system to a Clan Star Adder attack.

In 3067, the Naval Reserve sortied to escort the new Iota Galaxy on their raid of Tathis, managing to destroy one of Clan Star Adder's Vincent class WarShips in the process. In 3071, the Rocinante was crippled, likely beyond repair, by Clan Ghost Bear over Arcadia.

In 3082, the Naval Reserve lost the Exsanguine in the Colleen system to Clan Coyote, and in 3084 the last of the Naval Reserve comprising the Karianna Schmitt and the Stooping Kite was destroyed by Clan Star Adder in the final defense of the Colleen system.
