USNS Solace (T-AH-21) is a Mercy-class hospital ship of the United States Navy. To escape the Red Flu virus, the Solace sailed offshore with a skeleton crew and 15 scientists as well as equipment for a bio-lab to produce the cure.
On S2E4, an immune team lead by Ned Ramsey boarded the Solace looking for the cure. The mercenaries killed some of the crew, destroyed the lab, and tried to blow up the ship. The rest of the crew and the ship was saved by the crew of the USS Nathan James. The Immunes however managed to get away with some of the Solace's documents that would later help them to locate and destroy the cure labs.
After the battle the James crew manage to get the Solace and its crew underway back to Norfolk, however, one of Solace's scientists had chosen to stay aboard the James.
