History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The Dienjzhiae class Fleet Intelligence Corvette is a ship serving with the Zhodani Navy.

The Dienjzhiae class intelligence corvette is a highly sought after prize by Imperial navy intelligence circles. Having recently appeared in and near borders shared with the Imperium. It was only just identified in 1115 as an intelligence collection vessel, following the pursuit of one in the Villis system that ended with the corvette scuttling itself in a nuclear explosion to prevent capture. It is tasked with the collection of signals, imagery and systems reconnaissance missions. Some circles suggest due to the electronic and visual stealth technology that the vessels are involved in special operations as well. Sharing the same hull has the Berka, Bra’La and Banya class fleet corvettes allow it some ability to disguise itself as commonplace with in and around Zhodani space. The Dienjzhiae class is built by Idar Nobsl ship yards under very tight security in order to prevent the disclosure of the intelligence collection systems on board. Due to the nature of sensitive operations conducted by these vessels’ the crews are hand picked for security and professionalism. It is known that full Commanders are appointed to command these vessels instead of the usual Lieutenant Commanders.[3]
