God this took forever to do!! I hope y'all like it :) Anyway, here's a bit of back story for this one:

THE ATLANTIS CLASS DESTROYER IS THE LATEST PRODUCT OF THE KARMATECH MILITARY CONSTRUCTION GROUP. CONSTRUCTION
ON THE PROTOTYPE - E.A.S. CARPATHIA BEGAN IN FEBRUARY 2274 AND WAS COMPLETED IN 2276 AND COMMISSIONED IN 2277.
WHEN ROCKETDYNE INDUSTRIES DISCOVERED SIMILARITIES BETWEEN THE ATLANTIS CLASS AND IT'S OWN WARLOCK CLASS THE
SUBJECT WAS BROUGHT TO THE EARTH ALLIANCE HIGH COURT AND ROCKETDYNE TRIED TO SUE KARMATECH FOR USE OF GRAVITIC
FIN ENGINE DESIGN AS WELL AS SEVERAL OTHER TECHNICAL COMPONENTS. HOWEVER, ROCKETDYNE'S PLEA WAS OVERTURNED ON
THE GROUNDS THAT ANY TECHNOLOGY PROCURED FROM OTHER RACES CANNOT BE PATENTED BY ANY CORPORATION BASED ON
EARTH OR ITS COLONIES.

THIS STARSHIP REPRESENTS A NEW AGE IN MILITARY DESIGN. IT INCORPORATES A VARIED MIX OF HUMAN AND ALIEN TECHNOLOGY.
IT'S ENGINE DESIGN CONTAINS CONVENTIONAL FUSION PROPULSION FOUND ON OLDER EARTH FORCE VESSELS AS WELL AS THE
NEWER GRAVITIC FIN DRIVE GIVEN BY THE MINBARI, HOWEVER WITH A LARGER ENGINE BLOCK ENCASING LARGER POWER GENERATORS
RUNNING THE FINS, THIS SHIP IS ALMOST TWICE AS MANEUVERABLE AS THE WARLOCK CLASS DESTROYER.

THOUGH THE ATLANTIS IS SLIGHTLY LONGER THAN THE WARLOCK, ITS SIZE IS SOMEWHAT DECEPTIVE AS THE HULL MOSTLY
CONTAINS THE MASSIVE REACTORS NEEDED TO POWER THE NEW WEAPONS ARRAY. THE MAIN GUNS AT THE BOW ARE BASED ON
VREE ANTI-MATTER CANNON TECHNOLOGY AND CAN UNLEASH A DEVASTATING BLAST OF ENERGY BOLTS THAT CAN TEAR A SHARLIN
CLASS WAR CRUISER TO SHREDS, MAKING THE ATLANTIS CLASS DESTROYER ONE OF THE MOST POWERFUL, HEAVILY ARMED SHIPS
IN THE EARTH FORCE FLEET.

CONVENTIONAL WEAPONS INCLUDE PLASMA PULSE/FUSION LASER BATTERIES AND RAIL GUNS, SEVERAL EMPLACEMENTS OF LIGHT
PLASMA PULSE ANTI-FIGHTER TURRETS, AND HEAVY MISSILE RACKS THAT CONTAIN GIGATONNE MISSILE SILOS WITH A ONE-MISSILE
RELOAD SYSTEM AND ANTI-SHIP MISSILE HATCHES ON THE LEADING EDGE OF THE WING STRUTS. THIS SHIP ALSO CARRIES 36
THUNDERBOLT STARFURIES ARRANGED IN A TRIPLE LAUNCH SYSTEM IN THE COBRABAYS.
