Post an idea for your hero ships!

FORMAT:

Ship Name:
Captain Name:
Ship Model:

Loadout:
-(Secondary)
-(Modules)
-(Officer Briefings)

Short Story

*Note: For balance reasons, it is recommended that hero ships should have competitive but sub-optimal loadouts.

EXAMPLE

Ship Name: The Medusa
Captain Name: Rayla Starfury
Ship Model: Kreshnik (Heavy Corvette)

Loadout:
Secondary - Bolt Guns
Modules - Kinetic Armor Amplifier, Heavy Torpedoes, Disruptor Pulse, Auto-Repair
Officer Briefings - Desperate Measures, Destruction Cascade, Nerves of Steel, It's A Trap!

Short Story:

The Medusa is one of the most feared bounty hunting ships in the Scum Belt. Rumor has it that captain Rayla Starfury and her crew were former victims of the Slaver's Ring. After stealing a heavily armed Corvette, the captain and her crew of liberated slaves unleashed a storm of untold destruction against their captors. What remains of the slaver outpost that held the Medusa crew is nothing more than a graveyard of debris and cold space that sends chills down the spine of the belt's most hardened criminal.

Thanks for posting this, I've been thinking about doing it for a while, but never got around ^^

Ship Name: Karukas Ascent
Captain Name: Andrew Sarnow
Ship Model: Koschei

Loadout:
- Light Machine Guns
- Repair Drones, Repair Pod, Repair Autobeams, Energy Generator
- Retaliator, Module Amper, Engine Rigger, Adrenaline Shot

The Karukas Ascent, lovingly called the ...end by its crew, was stationed towards Proxima Centauri in the Kuiper Belt to provide support for the first crewed long range mission to another solar system. For hitherto unknown reasons the mission was aborted when the exploration vessel Deep Strike One experienced an unknown but lifethreatening EM activity just outside the Heliosphere. Captain Sarnow immediately brought the Karukas Ascent out to assist the Deep Strike One which subsequently escaped the zone of unknown activity, heavily damaged but with most of its crew alive. The Karukas Ascent made it back to its post having come under similar stresses but all communication with the ship were lost. After three days out of communication PFC forces boarding the ship found no sign of the crew or its captain. All internal logs ending at the same moment, the last recorded words were those of Captain Sarnow: "What on earth is..."
Ship Name: Kingfisher
Captain Name: Marcus Schmidt
Ship Model: Koschei

Loadout:
- Light Machine Guns
- Surge Drones, Repair Pod, Repair Autobeams, Target Warp
- Retaliator, Module Amper, Slow and Steady, Adrenaline Shot

The Kingfisher, much like its namesake, is one of the most agile Koschei based ships known in Sinley Bay. Captain Schmidt was once famously quoted: "If you can't do it quick and dirty, it's not paying enough to be done at all." Many a ship moored in Sinley Bay is only there because of Schmidts Kingfisher dashing to its rescue against odds most extreme. His sometimes borderline illogic dashes across the battlefields have earned him the respect but also resentment of his fellow Captains.

Ship Name: Kilatu
Captain Name: Nancy Kuljenkow
Ship Model: Koschei

Loadout:
- Light Machine Guns
- Beam Amplifier, Repair Pod, Repair Autobeams, Energy Generator
- Retaliator, Module Amper, Engine Rigger, Adrenaline Shot

An early product of the Akula Shipyards the Kilatu suffers from an almost dangerous imbalance of its defensive and offensive abilities. Equipped with the some of the first AKI-H40-Karewit Repair Beam systems leaving the Akula production lines and the first ever Beam Amplifier it certainly packs one of the heaviest punches of any tactical cruiser in existence. Its defensive abilities however fell somewhat short of expectations. When asked about her ship Commodore Kuljenkow usually uses words like Sledgehammer, and eggshell. Nonetheless the Kilatu, and even more so Commodore Kuljenkow, have earned a name for bravery in the face of any opposition. Pulling off rescues where less capable ships would long have been overcome, their charges destroyed.

That's it for now, sure there are more to come smile

Here's another:

Ship Name: The Atlas Glaive
Captain Name: Tyren Eros
Ship Model: Grenada (Heavy Artillery Cruiser)

Loadout:
Secondary - Flak Cannons
Modules - Sentry Catapult, Scrambler Missile, Anti-Nuke Lasers, Dive Maneuver
Officer Briefings - Desperate Measures, Glass Cannon, Engine Rigger, Reinforced

Short Story:

After the Great Solar War, many of the Martian colonies were left in ruins due to intense orbital bombardments. Following the end of the war, some of the surviving refugees created a small colony within the hollowed out remains of an old Jupiter Arms factory called the "Atlas." Interested in the surviving tech held by the Atlas, a self-proclaimed warlord named Kynes Bloodstar was quick to subdue the Atlas and its people. Kynes forced the people of the Atlas to dig up any and all salvageable Jupiter Arms weaponry to fuel his ongoing conquest of the postwar Martian colonies.

After years of suffering under Kynes' rule, a mysterious message appeared on the Martian relay network that proclaimed the Atlas' independence from the Bloodstar clan. Believing that the resistance would be a joke, the Kynes' flagship approached the Atlas flanked by a small fleet of heavily armed dreadnoughts.

Kynes expected that the Atlas people would simply shrink back into submission when faced with his fleet of warships. Instead he found a salvaged Grenada class cruiser in orbit above Mars -its large rusted gun pointed defiantly at the oncoming Bloodstar ships.

At first Kynes laughed...but his laughing quickly ended when the first double salvo of the Atlas Glaive's particle cannons ripped through his flagship, killing him instantly and spreading disarray through his fleet.

14 days later, the people of the Atlas were celebrating their independence from the Bloodstar clan as what remained of the Kynes' fleet rained down across the martian sky like fireworks.

When Atlas Glaive came down after the the battle, Tyren Eros and his ragtag crew emerged from the docking shaft. The crew's only experience in operating the logistics and weapon systems of the Grenada prior to the battle was old targeting simulator that they found at the bottom of a secluded trash heap.

Ship Name: The Ultimatum
Captain Name: Rogerin Adratus
Ship Model: Invictus

Loadout:
- Heavy Flak Cannons
- Fighters, Slug Torpedo, Tractor Beam, Armor Amplifier
- Desperate Measures, Destruction Cascade, Navigation Expert, It's a Trap!

The Ultimatum, nicknamed "Deceiver of Salvation" by those few survivors who have attempted and failed to destroy the ship, originally served to protect mining vessels in the Trojan asteroid belt. Rogerin Adratus, at the time known as Lieutenant Basden, led a group of marine deserters on a small but powerfully cloaked boarding vessel. They overtook The Ultimatum with ease after catching the poorly armed crew by surprise. Next they proceeded to destroy the defenseless mining vessels and the few remaining fighter craft. Adratus salvaged most of the valuable ores along with a recently recovered artifact, both totaling up to be worth a great fortune. Word of this fortune spread very quickly, and subsequently many of the system's most notorious bounty hunters set out after The Ultimatum.

Although bounty hunters were after the ship for the fortune it carried, leading scientists also had interests in it as well. Although navy intelligence offices couldn't confirm, the artifact was believed to be a trans-human warp drive recovered from one of their shipwrecks. This mechanism could be capable of warping ships to much greater distances than technology currently allowed, and it could even revolutionize interstellar travel.

Adratus meant to spend the fortune on constructing a fortified outpost within the outskirts of the Kuiper Belt, but as long as he is continually chased through the solar system he might never get the chance. He has fought off all his attackers purely with his tactical wit and unpredictable ambush strategies.
