Background[edit]

Caliphate class warships are based upon a design first developed by the Caliphate of Estalia on Whitman (Holowon 0423 A2737D3-A). They are a spherical hulled vessel for short-range patrols in the Caliphate. These starships have enough fuel for two jumps without refueling. Scorned as poorly armed by some safety conscious sailors, they are nonetheless sturdy workhorses of the Caliphate fleet. They are armed with five single pulse laser turrets and two single missile turrets. There are currently 87 of these Destroyer Escorts in service.

The partially streamlined spherical configuration is heavily armored and is capable of gas giant refueling. The hull is a strange combination of Lead, Iron, and Cobalt and it is fitted with fuel scoops and a purification refinery. They carry a 4 ton Air Raft. There is a crew of twelve, which include: pilot, navigator, 7 engineers, 2 gunners, and medic.
