Description (Specifications)[edit]

Medical Craft cover a variety of medical and biological sciences missions including hospitalization, ambulancery, first aid, plague hunting, SAR (Search and Rescue) AKA Essandar, and others... in every size class from ACS to the largest FCS hospital ships. They are few, but vital with their specialized medical missions. Many are civilian vessels, but a dedicated few serve as military auxiliaries in the combat support ship grouping.

Supraclass Archetypal Roles[edit]

These vessels typically serve the following archetypal roles:

N-class Medical Craft Supraclass Archetypes
Archetype Type Code/s Exemplar Remarks
Medical Vessel N (Namesake) Kurgilash class Medical Scout None
  • N = mediciNe
Hospital Ship NH Relief class Hospital Ship None
  • H = Hospital
Rescue Ship NR Blakeway class First Response Vessel None
Life Boat / Escape Pod UE SK-3 class Lifeboat It is one of the smallest spaceships in common use. They typically displace 20 tons or less. Although its primary function is to serve as a life craft in the event that evacuation is required, it can also be used to transport passengers. While many launches perform a utility role as well as life boat and/or escape pod duties, most Type-UE-class smallcraft are specialized to only perform escape pod and/or life boat duties. Any utility capabilities are an afterthought.
Medical Craft UN Camel class Medical Launch Medical smallcraft serve as utility crafts for medical ships. They haul patients back and forth, perform first aid, rescue, and a variety of other life-saving roles and missions. Some are specialized to track down pervasive alien pathogens or hunt down and destroy plagues. At any rate, they serve medical largecraft or provide some measure of medical capability for non-medical largecraft.
  • U = Utility
  • N = mediciNe
NOTES: There is semantic overlap between many of the classes and codes. Some codes organize by mission or capability, others by size and tonnage, and yet others by other characteristics.
