The Adept Chamber

The Adept Chamber​

Strengths:
  • The Adept Chamber provides this vessel with a unique and unparallelled potential to go undetected
  • Spacious, well provisioned and appointed hangars allow the ship to carry a wealth of fighters and other small craft
  • Fast straight line speed for such a large craft
Weaknesses:
  • Absolutely no offensive weaponry whatsoever
  • Slow to turn, especially at full speed
  • Vulnerable on the aft quarter where all the engines are located, lacking armor plating
Description: First laid down as a successor to the Dxun-class heavy cruiser, whose sleek lines can be seen in her unique hull design, the vessel that would come to be known as the Black Star, began its life as a destroyer, and became a carrier the likes the galaxy had never seen. Her sleek lines belie her devastating potential.

The powerful engines and advanced hyperdrive push the heavily armoured Black Star into danger. Well protected and shielded, her internal space is given over to the hangars, as well as support areas and maintenance bays for the plethora of fightercraft she is able to carry.

A notable design feature is her complete lack of offensive weaponry. This was due to the agreement which made the vessel's design purpose possible; between General Kaine and a group of Fallanasi adepts of the White Current. No aggressive features of any kind, and Kaine had to work hard enough just to get them to allow the vessel to be changed from a cruiser to a carrier, the armaments were a dealbreaker, so they had to go.

Indeed a pledge was extracted from Kaine that the Black Star only be deployed against the most heinous of enemies in the most dire of times of need. The adepts respected the Mandalorian Empire of Yasha Mantis, and their sworn duty not to harm non-combatants, and while they were in no way prepared to countenance offensive action, a small group of them agreed to facilitate the operation of this one vessel, on the proviso that the agreement was held to the letter. Should the vessel be misused, the adepts would withdraw their support, reducing the ship to merely another line vessel.

The vessel's interior, just aft of the main command bridge, houses a spacious room of floor to ceiling holoprojectors around a spherical wall and roof. In the centre is a neural interface link capable of joining the minds of up to a dozen beings simultaneously, allowing them to act in perfect concert. The adepts gather here when needed, to combine their skills and their talents, acting as one, while the leader unifies their effort into a singular will, able to affect the flow of the White current to a significant degree. To evil, to hatred, to murder, to the Darkness, the Black Star does not kneel.

Speed Rating: Very Fast
I realize this is kind of funny, but there actually isn't a "very fast" rating for sublight speed (even though there is one for the hyperdrive). I imagine that you mean "Very High" here per the template.

Electronic Warfare Suite

What does this suite all entail?

As I understand it then, the 'cloaking' feature of this ship is actually not a specific feature of the ship itself, but rather this is an ability of part of the ship's crew. The Factory doesn't really approve NPCs. Because of that, if I am understanding this correctly, I'd recommend submitting a NPC unit to the Codex for this effect.


Overall, this is one rating too high, not including the unusually fast hyperdrive. There should probably be another significant weaknesses added or an additional rating reduced to keep this fast hyperdrive.

SInce this looks like it's the significant weakness being added to compensate for its unusually fast hyperdrive, can you expand on what this means with specifics? Is this a lack of shielding, armor, etc?

[member="Kaine Australis"], if you'll remove "proper" from that section (so that it's unarmored), we should be good on that point.

Let me know when the Codex submission for these Fallanassi characters is approved so that we can link it here.

EDIT: Alternatively, what we could do to speed this up would be to remove the references to the abilities of the Fallanasi characters, but mention that this ship is specifically designed for their requirements.
