The Penedur class Destroyer is a light warship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The TL–12 partially streamlined close structure hulls are lightly armored. They have a pair of model/6 fib ship computers mounted adjacent to the bridge and are capable of 6 G acceleration and have a 3 agility rating. They carry enough fuel, internally for a single Jump-2, with a Jump-1 reserve for strategic withdrawal. They can carry drop tanks with 28 days of power plant fuel and an additional Jump-2 as needed. They are equipped with fuel scoops and on board fuel purification for wilderness gas giant refueling.

  • They are very fast and the particle accelerator bay is great for terrorizing asteroid dwellers, for example. The weapons include five dual fusion gun turrets for point defense, ten triple beam laser turrets, and a missile bay for offense. The defenses include the good hull armor and five triple sand caster turrets.
  • They have a small marine platoon equipped with drop capsules for orbital insertions and a Unity of Sed 3T Grav Tank with three crew.
  • They carry a crew of 77 sophonts.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

There are in service with The Righteous Hand. Designed and built at Jaradin for the Unity of Sed. These ships operate within the Far Home Sector. These ships are used in a wide variety of roles and are widely respected for their capabilities. There are currently at least 20 known to be 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".
