Other Terran Spacecrafts of Note

Military Hyperthruster

This is a small military transport typically used for taking a landing party to a planet and back to the ship. There are times when the landing party is allowed to take a fighter (such as the Strike) to the planet and back, but for the rest of the time a hyperthruster will be needed. The military hyperthruster has one pilot, a co-pilot/gunner, a gunner, and can carry up to 8 passengers. In the passenger section, there is an option for two of the passengers to arm side turrets on the hyperthruster. These side turrets are typically inactive unless armed by gunners. If they are called in to fight during emergency situations, there will always be two passengers to arm the side turrets. Though it is designed to substitute as a fighter, it is important to note that they are not on the same level as a fighter spacecraft of Terra and are only used in these situations as a last resort. Skill Required: Military Hyperthruster.


Support Craft

A small fighter sized craft which assists fighters, and at other times larger crafts, during battle. They are set up with a pair of arm-like extensions with a wide variety of tools. The main purpose of these craft is to rearm fighter crafts fast. This saves the fighter the time of having to return to the main ship for rearmaments when missiles or other weapons run out. By doing this, it allows a fighter to return to battle faster and help support the rest of the forces. The secondary purpose of it is to make repairs.

Typically these repairs are minor malfunctions that will allow a fighter to operate at full capacity again. It is also possible to get a fighter which has suffered such severe damage that it no longer functions up and running just enough to return to the main ship for full repairs. Under more dire circumstances, it is possible for these small ships to make minor repairs to larger crafts as well. However the repairs it can do are minor and, if they are needed, represent a desperation situation. It has minimal weapons of its own for purposes of battle and requires protection from the fighters it supports to avoid destruction. Skill Required: Military Spacecraft: Small.


Exploration Class Ship

This is one of the largest vessels Terra has to offer. It is a combination of battle class ship and science. There are only five of these types of ships currently in existence which have been sent out to study the rest of the known universe, as long as it does not interfere with the territory of another race. Currently, there are two more exploration class ships near finished with construction and should be space worthy in only another year or two. Also, there are another four still earlier in development process. Only those six are slated for completion with no other current plans to build any after that.

The reason for this is that these are a specialized type of ship meant for exploring. Since the known universe is limited in size and the outer sphere is so heavily guarded, there is only so much that can be explored. With the current possibilities for exploration being limited there will likely be little use for these ships once done. Though they can serve as combat vessels as well, resources can be better spent on attack ship meant for combat than on an exploration class being used for the same purpose. It is believed that a total of eleven ships should be enough to finish exploration of the known universe, even taking into account the possibilities of some of these ships being destroyed in the line of duty.

The exploration class is a cross between a science vessel and a battle class ship, though not quite as good as either in their respective purposes. It comes close to being the equivalent of a science vessel though, but is well over twice the size to compensate for its combat purposes and additional crew compliment. As they are further away from Terra than any other vessel, it is important to have an ample crew ready to replace any unfortunate casualties. Current Exploration Class vessels in service are: The Prospect, The Reconnoiter, The RevelationThe Scry, and The Vision. Skill Required: Military Spacecraft: Large.


Battle Class Ship

These are the main type of attack ships within the Terran military. They are fast and maneuverable as well as heavily armed and armored. Effectively, they are a much larger version of a fighter spacecraft. Though they carry a compliment of fighter spacecrafts, what makes it such a formidable opponent in battle comes from what it is capable of doing on its own. Skill Required: Military Spacecraft: Medium.


Deployment Class Ship

During battles these ships are designed to send out large numbers of small fighters at a single time in a battle. They also have a small port where a medium class ship can dock for purposes of repair. The deployment class is not a frontline vessel and tends to stay away from the fighting allowing fighters to support the other ships in battle and allow a place for the ships to retreat for repairs. Due to this fact, a deployment class ship can often be a main target by enemy ships. Simply because it is not its primary purpose does not mean the deployment class cannot hold its own in a fight. It is well armed and armored. Skill Required: Military Spacecraft: Large.


Destroyer Class Ship

The most powerful of all the Terran military is the destroyer class. Though its size causes it to lack the speed and maneuverability of the battle class ships it more than makes up for it in sheer power. It has a wide array of weaponry, including a large compliment of fighters, and thick armor unmatched by any other Terran vessel. Unfortunately, the size and technology of these ships makes it slow in the construction process and only a limited number of this class is currently finished and available for battle. Skill Required: Military Spacecraft: Large.


Science Vessel

The purpose of the science vessel is rather self-explanatory. Though a military ship, it does not have many weapons and is poorly armored. This is in favor of better sensors and equipment. It is these ships which are responsible for exploring the Terran System and the neighboring Halthrine System. Without these ships, it would have been significantly harder to find habitable planets and valuable resources located on those worlds.

With the Terran and Halthrine Systems being as thoroughly explored as they can be with the technology of these ships, their use has been decreasing more and more with the recent creation of the exploration class ships. Currently, it has been slated only for further examination of a world after an exploration class ship has checked out a system; assessing any possible dangers and finding something warranting further study. Skill Required: Military Spacecraft: Medium.


Personal Craft

These are small personal crafts designed for space travel. Typically, they are only available to rich men and women who can afford one. Due to these being personal crafts, they usually lack armor and weapons. Civilian crafts with armor or weapons is usually either illegal or has military connections. Personal crafts can be one seated crafts designed for joyriding or slightly larger and can transport small groups of people (similar to a personal jet, only far more expensive). Skill Required: Civilian Spacecraft: Small.


System Transport

A much larger type of craft meant to transport large groups of people between worlds or even systems. These transports are usually designed for short distance travels and any long trips usually involve stops along the way for supplies and breaks for the passengers from being cooped up inside for too long. Skill Required: Civilian Spacecraft: Medium.


Colony Ship

The colony ship is the largest type of vessel available for civilian purposes. It is designed to be able to transport enough people to start an entire colony. In addition, these ships are equipped to last for prolonged periods of time without stop. This includes having enough food, water, and necessary facilities to sustain such a large group of people for as long as needed. One of these ships should be able to sustain the entire crew and passengers for well over a year without need of stop. These ships often carry supplies necessary to help start a successful colony. Skill Required: Civilian Spacecraft: Large.
