ANNIC NOVA is a relic from an earlier time.

  • The tech level of the vessel is not known, though a minimum of TL-12 can be guessed at due to the jump capability of one of the two jump drives.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The ANNIC NOVA starship has the following features:

  • The Annic Nova has no maneuver drive of its own, instead it uses pinnaces as tugs for limited maneuvering capability (0.1G).
  • There are two jump drives onboard: One capable of Jump-2 and the other Jump-3.
  • There is no power plant, using a Collector canopy which collects radiated stellar power and stores it in the accumulators on the drive deck.
  • This Collector canopy cannot be deployed during any maneuvering or when the vessel enters, exits or is within jumpspace.
  • Though having six hard points, there are only two turrets mounted, each with one laser.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The ANNIC NOVA was tracked down by a group of adventurers in the Keng/Regina (Spinward Marches 2405) system.
