Special Variant: Oreo Pattern Hull[edit]

Oreo Pattern Hulls are a special kind of Braced Cluster Hull known for interconnected and sandwiched layers of hulls. They can be made efficiently if done so in bulk and confer slightly easier manufacturing practices and strengthening characteristics. It is named after a type of cookie well known in the Second Imperium, which originated on pre-spaceflight Terra and spread during the Interstellar Wars alongside other elements of Terran culture.
