Basic Ship Characteristics[edit]

Following the Imperial Navy and IISS Universal Ship Profile and data, additional information is presented in the format shown here. The small craft factor indicates the number of squadrons (...of ten subcraft) carried on the ship. Tonnage on the universal ship profile is shown in kilotons (...thousands of tons) where necessary.

Basic Ship Characteristics [2]
No. Category Remarks
1. Tonnage / Hull The Uthgvoe class is constructed using an 80,000 Ton hull built in a Dispersed Structure configuration. The hull is unstreamlined and cannot operate in anything denser than Trace atmospheres without risking catastrophic structural failure.
  • The vessel is constructed around a long central spine.
  • There are 54 airlocks located around the vessel. The cargo hold is accessed by large doors.
2. Crew x751 personnel.
  • x76 Officers.
  • x675 Enlisted.

Accommodations

  • There are 375.5 Staterooms. All quarters are double occupancy.

Accessible areas of the hull are fitted with grav plates and inertial compensators and have full life support and environmental systems.

  • There are internal monitoring and security systems throughout the vessel. Individual sections of the hull can be sealed off.
  • There are multiple emergency lockers.
3. Performance The vessel mounts a Jump-2 drive, a Maneuver-6 drive, and a Power Plant-6, giving performance of Jump-2 and 6-G acceleration. The ship has an agility rating of 4 and an emergency agility of 6. The internal fuel tankage is sufficient for two consecutive Jump-2s and gives the power plant 4 weeks duration.
  • The engineering section has a main control room.
    • Ladders, gantries and platforms give access to the machinery.
  • The jump drive creates a jump bubble around the vessel.
  • The jump drive is fitted with a jump governor.
4. Electronics Adjacent to the bridge is a Model/5 fib computer: the vessel has a backup Model/5 fib computer.
  • There are multiple workstations and control points throughout the vessel.
  • The vessel is fitted with communications equipment, an advanced sensor array, and has an avionics suite.
    • It is fitted with backup commo and sensor systems.
  • It has a transponder unit that can be deactivated on command.
  • It is equipped with a sophisticated ECM package.

10. Cost The basic cost of the vessel is MCr66,162.456
  • Architects Fee: MCr661.625
11. Construction Time 202 weeks (47 months) as standard.
  • Build times can be reduced by mass production and the efficiencies such processes generate, by increased financing, and by allotting additional yard resources and facilities to the construction contract.
12. Comments Standard cargo capacity amounts to 80 Tons. The cargo hold can be sealed and has independent life support and environmental systems.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Uthgvoe class Fleet Tenders are built locally and crewed by loyal Empire citizen-warriors. As a point of pride members of the Uthgvoe class are used as flagships for operations they take part in. The Dispersed Structure hull is unstreamlined and the vessel must rely on fleet auxiliaries for refueling operations. It has jump-2 range and carries enough fuel for two consecutive jumps. It can produce 6G acceleration and has enough excess power for agility 4. It is not intended to stand on the line of battle.
