The Block 1. Lyceum reminds me of the Searcher ship from Buck Rogers season 2.


Searcher was originally one of the models used in the original Battlestar Galactica.

Canis drew it for me as a Communion liner, Spirit of the Stars.

Several new things...

First up is the Block 3 Tisiphone (Nemesis). This is similar to the Block 2 series which introduced stacked and opposed flight pods, but uses the wider pods from the Block 4 Dynamene class. The engines are slightly uprated to handle the extra mass so the performance remains the same. While this doesn't increase the launch rate, it does expand the hangar spaces so that aircraft handling is much easier and quicker. An expanded airwing may be carried, though normally this consists of a detachment of Turul ground attack craft, several Storks, and some additional Rocs to take advantage of the expanded Marine barracks for ground operations. This has made the Block 3 a favorite with the Admiralty for detached commerce raiding duty against known Erisian strongholds.

Image

The second item is a Block 4 E-Class gunstar. The lower hull has been expanded and an additional two engines have been added. Much like the Block 3 Tisiphone, the Block 4 E-Class has been used for an increasing number of independent operations where a well armed ship with a high sublight acceleration was favored. The extended hull offers better crew quarters, a slightly larger Marine detachment, and a slightly larger hangar deck.

Image

The third item is a larger and more flexible heavy drone for the E-Class gunstars. The original recon and Ragnarok drones were single mission purpose built drones. The new drones are larger and configurable. This started as a thought exercise that posed the question, "How do you resupply deployed groundside forces with the minimum amount of risk?" This resulted in two drones, both based on the same general design with both being the same length and height and only differing in width. The design mix proved so versatile that it has resulted in not just cargo versions, but variants with barracks, field hospitals, refugee support services, and even fully manned versions of the same.

When the drone enters the atmosphere, either through reentry or an FTL jump, scissor wings deploy from the bottom of the hull for control and stability, while gravitic lifters allow it to land without a runway.

Image

Finally, the Block 3 Hera class. At first glance it appears to be a modified Tisiphone, but a closer look will reveal that it is a Hera gunstar with the same pods as the Block 2 Tisiphone class battlestar.

First up is Euryale, a Block 5 Hera class battlestar. The Hera was a development of the A-class gunstar that added some battlestar capability, but retained the original Hera class gunstar's sponsons. This cut the launch capacity by half and removed the Roc tubes, but added an additional 12 turrets. The hangars are large and spacious, and carry a high number of small craft for utility, support, and raiding. Euryale also has an anechoic coating to reduce her dradis signature.

Image

Next is Medusa, a Block 4 Dynamene with a special anechoic coating on her hull to reduce the dradis signature.

Image

Finally, a Block 4S E-class gunstar. The Block 4 design expanded the lower flight deck and hangar and extended it aft, while at the same time adding additional strength to the hull. The biggest difference, however, is that two additional engines were added, making the Block 4s among the fastest accelerating ships in Union service.

thanks.

at some point I really do need to go through and reorganize my personal warbook database..I'm reasonably sure I've gotten precurser and earth union ships mixed up at times lol.

My preference is the Medusa and Elektra for the Earth Union.

I love some of the other designs...but those two, and the A-Class, they just exemplify grace and a mailed fist inside a velvet glove. Wait until you meet their commanders...let's just say they have a very, very, very unique backstory.

The Lyceum Black 10 was an upgrade of the Lyceum Block 4, the only difference being that the Block 10 had the wider flight pods that were becoming ever more common within the fleet.

Image

The Lyceum Block 11 was an iterative development of the Lyceum Block 7. The flight decks were extended into the hull and then additional spaces were constructed that ran from edge to edge and from front to read of the "wings". This increased the internal volume available for labs, storage, quarters, and other quality of life extras that allowed the ship to theoretically remain on station for more than five years before needing resupply.

Image

The Deo Vindice was originally a Union Fleet design that quickly became a favorite of the Erisians. They were fast, heavily armed and armored, and could make planetfall. The Union, seeing the possibility for 'blue on blue' incidents, removed them from front line service and relegated them to the Reserves, training, some picket duties, and with many of the guns removed, to the Guard. This lack of front line service, however, didn't stop iterative development and eventually the Block 4 was developed. It retained all the qualities that had made it a favorite, added uprated engines, heavy missile batteries, and wings similar to those used on the A-class.

As the Erisians were able to get their hands on a Block 4, it was assigned to the best crews and officers, those that while loyal to the cause also had a strong, almost overwhelming, sense of ethics because it was one of the few ships to carry nuclear weapons. Lex Talionis was a Block 4 that was under the command of Basil Martel when the drones began their genocide.
