History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Because a starship's entire structure is built around a spinal mount, hence the name, no starship may have more than one spinal mount.

Janus Spinal Mount[edit]

There is one exception: a so-called "Janus" mount consists of two half-length spinal weapons installed in a single spinal tunnel, one facing fore, one to aft.
