The Nassin class System Defense Boat is a defensive warship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The TL–9 streamlined needle/wedge structured hulls are equipped with fuel scoops and on board fuel purification for wilderness ocean refueling. They have a Model/3 fib computer mounted adjacent to the bridge and are capable of 6-G acceleration and have a 5-Agility rating.

They are armed with two 100 ton missile bays. They have the the thickest armor reinforcement possible at this technology level. This renders them highly resistant to surface strikes. These craft are renowned for their ability to absorb punishment.

They can carry a 2 dton Air/Raft and a 10 ton Launch. Two of these ships can be carried by a Merant class Fleet Tender.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Designed and built at Lias for the Rimward Federation. These ships operate within the Far Home Sector. There are in service with the Federation Navy and twenty squadrons of 10 are posted at all nine Federation Starports for security and customs duties. Some are keep in a strategic mobile reserve as part of a quick reaction force. There are two thousand SDBs currently in service.

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".
