The Omega Supreme class Battle Rider is a warship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The Ras Tennol Oni class Fleet Tender can carry five of these TL–12 warships. The Omega Supreme class Battle Rider was designed to destroy enemy combatants on the front line. They are equipped with back up systems and a low watch to absorb critical hits, but are considered a glass hammer. They carry a very powerful ship killing meson gun, but had to sacrifice hull armor and agility to do so.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

To augment the Ras Tennol Forces, these vessels can carry their own marines and fighters to compliment and expand upon the resources of their motherships. Then can be left behind for system defense duties as a monitor. Against enemy battleships they have to overwhelm targets with their numbers and hope to score enough internal hits to disable their enemy before they are crippled.

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".
