  • Fist of the Vicelord:
    The Dread Queen was born to be the inverse to its elder sister - the Fortressa. To this end, the warship features a monstrous assortment of weapons and countermeasures. In particular, the vessel's main armament - the Solar Pulse Cannon - is capable of bypassing conventional shields to deal grievous damage to capital and subcapital ships alike.

[*]Eyes of the Eagle:
  • Between her prow-mounted, Composite Beam Cannon and her dedicated, Long-Range Turbolaser Batteries, the Dread Queen is capable of combating targets well outside of typical range. In addition, as the Composite Beam Cannon was designed with engaging supercapital ships, it is capable of inflicting a significant sum of damage that is on par with a Proton Beam Cannon.

[*]Unbridled Terror:
  • Housed deep within the belly of the Dread Queen is one of the Vicelord's own Phobis Devices. Once activated by his command, this artifact is capable of spreading widespread hysteria over the localized battlefield.

[*]Command Vessel:
  • As a flagship, the Dread Queen is equipped with a wide variety of countermeasures and specialized systems. From exceptional, multi-layered shielding to a GAM for addressing gravitic warfare, she is thoroughly equipped to weather a number of battlefield threats.

  • Strength, At A Cost:
    Although a number of dedicated reactors have been assigned to the most notable onboard systems, the Dread Queen is a behemoth of power drain. In light of this reality, she can only fire her three most powerful weapons - Solar Ionization Cannons & Composite Beam Cannon - one at a time, lest she be rendered completely inert. Furthermore, there is a recharge time of several minutes between firing any of these three armaments.

[*]Mighty, Yet Slow:
  • The Dread Queen is furthest from the swiftest vessel in the Galaxy. Between her Hyperspace rating and sublight pace, she will easily be one of the slowest ships in any engagement.

[*]Friendly Fire:
  • The nature of her Solar Pulse Cannons and Phobis Device are such that impacting allied vessels is a very real possibility. Due to the indiscriminate nature of both weapons, employing either during any engagement presents a very real danger of adversely affecting allied ships.

[*]Empty Stomach:
  • The Dread Queen lacks a combat-related hangar and instead features a small landing bay for shuttles and the like. Therefore, she must totally rely upon the complements of adjacent capital craft for starfigher defense.

[*]Force Neutrality:
  • As is the case with any Force-centric offense, the Dread Queen's Phobis affect can be nullified by Ysalamir, Void Stone, and the like.

[*]From Above:
  • Much akin to its ancestor, the Malevolence, the Dread Queen's Pulse Cannons are especially susceptible to fire from above. This is further compounded by the sparse presence of anti-starfighter weaponry towards the dorsal part of the vessel.

"Where did the name come from? It's what everyone calls her when they think she's not paying attention. She can't stand it, ha!"
-Darth Metus, on the origin of the Dread Queen

As the Great Galactic War entered its final stages, the Confederacy doubled down on building its warmachine. With the future of the Galaxy uncertain, it made perfect sense for the southern nation to prepare as best it could for any storm. To this end, a monumental boon to the Confederacy's militant budget was passed - culminating with a new addition to the Confederate Armada. Dubbed - affectionately - as the Dread Queen, the Super Star Destroyer is a ferocious addition to the nation's armed forces.

In comparison to its existing kin, the Dread Queen is much more vicious than the Fortressa and shares the brutality of the Midnight Exigent. It has been armed to the teeth with a plethora of exotic armaments, with each poised to do as much damage as possible to enemy capital ships. Furthermore, it more than fulfills the role of Command Vessel, as it houses just as many specialized systems and countermeasures as it does weapons. Though it is hardly the quickest ship in the fleet and lacks a hangar, the Dread Queen is the Vicelord's personal choice in transportation.

Of course, this "bias" has absolutely nothing to do with the Caf Shop aboard. None whatsoever.

All in all, the Dread Queen is terrifying entry into the lineup of Confederate, Super Star Destroyers.

This looks pretty solid.

I think we need a bit more detail about this, because that looks like it could be interpreted as a superlaser, which in turn could potentially be considered a super weapon.

What I was looking to do was emulate the Midnight Exigent's primary weapon, so it would definitely not be used as a super laser/weapon.

Hits like a truck, definitely not a one shot. Stuck on mobile for a little bit, but what I can do is define it as such in the Eagle Eye strength. Something along the lines of:

"...Range. While more than capable of dealing grievous damage to a target, it is far from being the fabled Superlaser of the ancient Death Star."

Would that work for you?

[member="Darth Metus"], that and a brief description of the scale of damage that we're talking about. I might even specifically copy the description in the Midnight Exigent:

Dual-Emitter Composite Beam Laser: Designed as a frontline flagship who's primary purpose is to engage enemy supercapital ships, the Exigent is outfitted with an axial composite beam laser comprised of two emitters that produce a pair of orange beams for a period of 1.094 seconds, beams which connect to merge into one. This weapon system is roughly equal in strength with a proton beam cannon and can inflict significant damage to a target
