Previously
A deadly virus affecting both organics and robotics swept the northern sectors of the Galaxy, sparking a war between the afflicted and the remaining factions. After nearly a year of defensive battles and co-ordinated operations, the war finally ended at the Battle of Ruin. The end of the war saw increased relations between the GSU, Imperium and Santori as they all agreed on a two year ceasefire to mend the damages caused by the crisis.

After these two years the factions signed the Santori Accords, an agreement proclaiming their united efforts to uphold Celestial law, including the protection of innocent life in case of another galactic threat. Following this meeting the Highrock Clans decided to join the Santori Protectorate, expanding their territory by almost double.

Current Events
The Reich, a returning faction of magic-haters, resurface and initiate a purge of the planet Ordriey, destroying it entirely in the process. This event has made all of the Major Factions uneasy, even though each of them has bigger concerns of their own. Not only are there issues for these powers to deal with, but more factions are rising from the ashes of the Helix War, populating the galaxy once again.

Meanwhile, the Celestial Architect Sam'anar has discovered a way to reverse large parts of the Convergence, sending back many of the planets it had brought into the galaxy. Whilst this move has saved many from unwanted threats, it has also shifted the layout of the galaxy drastically. Because of this, new star-charts have been drawn out with Hyperlanes, allowing them to show the quickest and safest routes between planets.

"There it is again" The signals ensign repeated.

"Have we tracked the signal to it's source?"

"Yes Admiral."

"Very well prepare to jump."

It has been almost two months since elements of the 10th Fleet left Imperial space on a charting expedition into the Uncharted Sector,shortly upon their first week in this sector they discovered an strange signal carried by inaccurate and unstable wormholes that collapsed almost as soon as the message reached their communication range. The last few days the expedition fleet followed the signal towards a unknown star cluster,the Admiral hopes to discover it's source which may lead to the discovery of another sentient race and civilization to the galactic community. Several corvettes and two destroyers closely followed the admiral's frigate as it prepared it's jump drives.

The ship shot forward with the rest of the fleet following suit in microseconds.

"What wonders or horrors await them in the system?" Was the question on the minds of the crew among the fleet.

Name: Ma'Gel Light Cruiser
Owner: Serpentum Imperium/Serpentum Armada
Manufacturer: The Serpentum Engineering Corps/Shipwrights division.

Materials: Imperial Durasteel
Length: 900 meters
Rarity: Common

Grades

Weapons: 3
Armour: 5
Shields: 8
Speed: 6
Maneuvers: 5

Notable Equipment: 30x Light defensive mass driver coilguns scattered in pairs of 5 across the ship to defend against other light ships.20x Light defensive kinetic chainguns to engage fighter craft.

Description
With a maximum crew size of 2500 passengers {including the crew of 145} the Ma'Gel light cruiser is built for transportation rather then for direct combat.It's mostly used to carry legions across the stars it's other common uses include surveying planetary bodies,carrying vital cargo,acting as a carrier for large amounts of dropships or fighters and also patrolling Imperial space.

It's weaknesses however is limited to 2 things,firstly the ship has limited offensive capability due to it's non-combat focused design.Secondly lies in it's reliance on it's impact shielding.While powerful Impact shielding is vulnerable to close range bombers whose payloads fall at a speed relatively slower then the shield is set to block.It's armour is not as reinforced as frontline warships,thus a deadly bombing run could spell doom for the cruiser.

The ship carries a standard FTL drive allowing the ship to cross the vast distances of space in a short time with an cooldown period.

Name: Vu'ury Class Frigate
Owner: Serpentum Imperium/The Serpentum Armada
Manufacturer:The Serpentum Engineering Corps

Development Thread: https://convergencerp.rpg-board.net/t990-re...u-ury-class-wip {Approved before but was lost in the hack so incomplete}
Materials: Imperial Durasteel
Length:1300
Rarity: Mass produced

Grades
Grade the aspects of the ship below between 1-10. 1 being severely lacking in that aspect, 10 being specialized. Keep things balanced.
Weapons: 8
Armour: 6
Shields: 8
Speed: 5
Maneuvers:4

Notable Equipment
20x Kinetic Mass-Driver Point Defense Chainguns

10x Helix Plasmic Missle pods

15x Higra Kinetic Railguns

4x Terminus Torpedo pods {Explosive}

2x Heavy Higra Kinetic Railguns


Description
The Vu'ury Class war Frigate is well known for being one of the Imperium's more well armed ships despite it not being an capital ship.The design was rebuilt alongside many others after the completion of New Serpentum and the influx of resources the Imperium began to collect.

Being an frigate the Vu'ury's role in an standard Imperial fleet is to provide firepower between medium to long distances,relying on it's limited point defense systems to deter enemy fighters.It's powerful Terminus Torpedo's are designed to cut through armour whilst ignoring most shields....The downside to these torpedo's are it's limited targeting computers that can allow ships to simply get out of the line of fire without being followed and of course the fact that the torpedo itself can be destroyed before it reaches it's target.

It's Higra Kinetic Railguns are designed to engage other space craft whilst the heavier turrets are designed to engage more powerful ships such as battleships.

The Vu'ury Class uses High-impact shielding which can absorb high amounts firepower with little energy usage however the shield itself is vulnerable to bombers and slow moving projectiles.

Each Vu'ury Class holds a crew of 745 with space for 4 contingents of legionnaires or marines.Each Vu'ury Class is commanded by an trained Commodore.

Name: The Drak-Class Destroyer
Owner: Serpentum Imperium.
Manufacturer: The Serpentum Engineering Corps


Development Thread:N/A
Materials:Imperial Durasteel
Length: 950 meters
Rarity: Mass produced.

Grades
Grade the aspects of the ship below between 1-10. 1 being severely lacking in that aspect, 10 being specialized. Keep things balanced.
Weapons: 7
Armour: 6
Shields: 8
Speed: 5
Maneuvers:5

Notable Equipment

60x Kinetic Mass-driver Chainguns that act as point-defence guns

20x Helix Plasmic Missile pods

2x Higra Kinetic Railguns


Description

Built after the completion of New Serpentum,these ships are one of many designs the Imperium's Shipwrights division built to support the large,powerful but ultimately slow capital ships the Imperium prefers to deploy.The Drak Class is armed with many point defense systems aimed in disrupting enemy fighters,bombers and lighter space craft such as Corvettes.
Allowing the Drak Class to protect the larger and more armed cruisers and battleships of the Serpentum Armada.

The Drak Class like most Imperial ships in the Armada employs the use of High Impact-shielding which protects the ship from high amounts of fire with little energy usage.However the shields are set to absorb projectiles at certain speeds meaning slow moving explosive payloads from bombers could slip right past the shield to the armour.

The Drak Class carries a crew of up to 440 with limited storage space to carry a single contingent of legionnaires or marines.Each Drak class is commanded by an trained Commodore.

Name: Tempest C-3 Dropship {Tempest Dropship}
Owner: The Serpentum Imperium & Vassal states {Military-Issue}
Imperial cities & Vassal states {Civilian-Issue}
Manufacturer: The Serpentum Engineering Corps


Materials: Imperial Durasteel
Length: 20 meters
Rarity:Mass produced

Weapons: 2 {0 for Civilian issue}
Armour: 6
Shields: 7
Speed: 6
Maneuvers: 3

Notable Equipment
1x Rapid-fire Kinetic Mini-gun used to soften enemy forces before landing.Installed High Impact shielding providing maximum protection for such a small craft.The ship itself has no FTL-drive due to the power usage the impact shielding takes. {Note the civilian issue lacks the Mini-gun}

Description
The 'Carrier-3 dropship is capable of carrying 5 legionnaires alongside the pilot.It's design was improved from it's first use during the "Great War" and the third and latest model uses the Imperium's unique impact shielding to allow it to take more fire from enemy fire.However the dropship has low offensive capability and struggles to maneuver to evade enemy fire.Much like power armor it has no protection towards powerful magics.The dropship is also popular among the citizenry of the Imperium who use it as planet-side taxi's.The cargo area is unsealed and thus Legionnaires have to rely on pressurized suits while in space.

It was named Tempest in memory of the first conflict this design was used in during the "Great War"
