The Temakurm class Attack Boat is a warship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

It is an streamlined, saucer fitted with fuel scoops for ocean refueling. They are capable of 5Gs of acceleration and the computer's power demands reduces the agility. Despite the massive drives and power plant fitted, which accounts for most of their construction cost, they have some power left over for 4 agility. They are fitted with a model 2 bis computer.

This craft carries a triple turret with a missile rack, a pulse laser, and a sand caster.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

This design is a staple of the TL–8 orbital boatyards of Temakurm (Halcyon 1332), and represent one of the major security elements of their fleet. This design serves with the Enlightened fleet. In service: 40.

These are used for system defense and to attack enemy shipping. Squadrons of these ships are found protecting every world in the Enlightened.

Distant Fringe Vessels[edit]

The Distant Fringe is said to be a far spinward-rimward area inhabited by colonists and refugees originating on Terra. The region is extremely isolated, separated from the rest of Charted Space by vast, almost uncrossable rifts that were once broached by a system of calibration Points and the use of tankers. Those few academics within Charted Space who have found references to the Distant Fringe regard it as little more than a tall tale. Likewise, many of the inhabitants of the Distant Fringe believe the existence of Charted Space to be mythical.[3]

Vessels originating within the Distant Fringe are very rarely encountered outside of the region. However, misjumps do occur and anomalies with bizarre spacetime and Jumpspace effects exist: as such, craft of this type are not entirely unknown within Charted Space.[4]

Class Naming Practice/s & Peculiarities[edit]

Each vessel within the class is named by the government of the state that produces it. They generally draw on traditional naming protocols and it is not uncommon for a historical class name to be reused.

  • Individual vessels within the class are issued specific serial numbers and transponder codes.
  • Naming a ship is considered a serious affair and is generally accompanied by a traditional ceremony, usually pouring a local beverage over the bows of the craft. Starfarers tend to be superstitious folk and a ship with a frivolous name is considered "unlucky".
