Source Discovered

Intent: The point is to provide Torjesgo with a unique vessel to be gained over the course of his exploring through the galaxy. It will begin as the second surviving vessel of the Garan species that will be in need of extensive repairs and refitting to be capable of doing much more than being a flying relic. Further development of the vessel will be done throughout the roleplaying span of the Torjesgo character. This will be the default information prior to it's rediscovery and any modifications being done to it. It will start as the stock and, pending the decision by the grader the best route to take, may be a fully new submission for the modified version or directly modified to this submission. Minor changes will likely occur at that time to begin it's transformation from an ancient sleeper ship to a more modern vessel capable of being used to traverse the galaxy.

Development Thread: To my understanding of the rules, it isn't necessary but let me know!

Description: There were three Garan Sleeper Ships created as the last hope of the Garani people to escape total destruction by the Infinite Empire. One of the three were destroyed in atmosphere by the Rakata, the second has been destroyed by the surviving son of the Garani people, Torjesgo, upon his awakening. The third drifts waiting to be discovered by no small feat of chance and destiny.
The vessel was designed to allow for colonists to hopefully escape the oppressive and genocidal regime of the Infinite Empire on their homeworld of Garan (Byss). It was designed with longevity and maximum storage capacity in mind with the limitations of the power output. To help it breech past the Infinite Empire vessels around their homeworld, the Sleeper Ships had heavy naval guns mounted to provide some level of defense against attack. The plans failed as the ships were unable to reach proper destinations with the only surviving vessel having become derelict and lost. The power capacity unable to maintain long enough to keep the sleeper pods going as well as the thrusters so the members on board slowly died out.

The interior of the vessel is broken down between the cockpit, the tiny living quarters, a medical bay, the engine/reactor compartment, cargo, weapon batteries, and then the large storage decks devoted to the sleep chambers and the machinery to keep the pods online and the occupants alive. It is a spartan styled ship as it wasn't designed for comfort but as a last ditch attempt to save a doomed species while packing in as many people as possible relative to the power provided.

The large panels at the aft of the ship are designed to provide auxiliary and emergency power in the case of system failures in some manner. The nuclear reactor has built in safety systems to shut it down should it become dangerous as the loss of the colony ship due to a reactor issue after escaping from the Infinite Empire would have been a great insult. The ship was made as flat as possible to keep a low profile moving through space and as small of a target from the side as possible. The disadvantage is that it's a rather wide ship, comparatively, to provide a larger target to vessels attacking from above or below. Garani engineering is quite dated and new compared to modern technology so their sublight engines are ancient and there is no hyperdrive built into the superstructure at all. Both things will need to be replaced or installed, respectively, to allow it to function effective in a modern scenario.
