November Nebula

Today is my birthday so I post my favourite nebula - M42, the Orion Nebula

6 - Navy Transport Ship

Next entry for my 100 random space encounters!

Enlightment-Class Blockade Runner

Hull: FR (18 structure points, -10% basic Pilot skill modifier) 
Armor: carbide (54) 
Reactor: expanded 
Drive Class: B 
Maneuvering Thrusters: one additional set (total Pilot skill modifier +0%) 
Jump Drive: yes 
Sensors: military +50% 
Jamming Systems: -30% 
Armament: 5 light lasers with UV focusing crystals (+1 damage)
Ammo: none 
Shield Generator: Delta
Cargo Space: 225t 
Other: 200t fuel holds, two external docking points, life support in cargo bays.

Enlightment-Class Blockade Runner is long, slender ship with powerful defense systems and ability to fend off smaller ships, such as fighters or pirate vessels. Its military-grade lasers can destroy enemy fighter with one salvo.

In addition, transport ship is guarded by two old but still deadly destroyers, belonging to two different classes, both invented more than 200 years ago.

Hydra-Class Destroyer

Hull: FR (18 structure points, -10% basic Pilot skill modifier) 
Armor: titanium (28) 
Reactor: standard
Drive Class: A 
Maneuvering Thrusters: none
Jump Drive: yes* 
Sensors: military +10% 
Jamming Systems: -10% 
Armament: 3 heavy missile launchers (6 pipes each)
Ammo: 54 XR HE missiles (18 pre-loaded), 12 XR plasma missiles
Shield Generator: Alpha
Cargo Space: none
Other: jump drive auxiliary power core*, launcher automatic feeding systems

"Glass Cannon" destroyer of ancient design, fast but very poorly protected. Despite very weak armor, a salvo of its missile batteries is capable of destroying an enemy cruiser within moments.

Vengeance-Class Destroyer

Hull: FR (18 structure points, -10% basic Pilot skill modifier) 
Armor: ceramite (44+10*) 
Reactor: expanded
Drive Class: B 
Maneuvering Thrusters: two additional sets (total Pilot skill modifier +5*%)
Jump Drive: yes*
Sensors: military +10% 
Jamming Systems: -5% 
Armament: plasma cannon, two heavy lasers, five light lasers
Ammo: none
Shield Generator: none
Cargo Space: none
Other: additional armor plating (+10 durability points, -5% to Pilot skill, already added to total modifier) ,targeting computer able to target 15 ships.

Another ancient ship, armed with mixed weapons systems, thus able to fight different types of enemy ships. Unfortunately, absence of shield generator makes it vulnerable target.

Wilderness Day

Last (at least for now) set of jungle pics found on Deviantart. Next week we'll start with something else, but still wilderness-related.
