This is my first post of my first sets of ships acting as a faction that I'm about to show you. I'm planning to make a combination of story that relative to the Avorion settings and a sort of "SCP-ish" format per each ship I wanted to share with you. My English isn't that great and doesn't know about much of formatting style but I find it exciting to make a story that were Xsotans are more dangerous in story than the game and trying to give off some spooky atmosphere. And also I created a moving shipyard (though not a mod, I wish there's a mod for that) that is able to creating more ships as they go since I inspired from Homeworld and make my gameplay a more of a RTS rather than being a solo RPG approach. My ships' designs are somewhat small and rectangular because they are compact and their hulls are mainly armor and I'm not yet creative enough to make a complex shapes like any builder, I wanted to scaled them up but it'll ruin for my taste and I like the small but deadly vibes to it but I'm satisfied enough that I built various and different ships. So here is my very long writing and I'll post more along with the ships for some time later. 

 

OFF-WORLD

Also known as Off-World Anomalous Research and Combat organization is not only an organization but as a race as well, they are a race of faceless humanoid clones made up of granite having their progenitor's look similar to human's, they are virtually immortal and slightly durable due to stone physiology. They are intelligent and space-faring race who constantly seeking "anomalous object" then pended them depending the severity or lethality of said objects and retrieve them back to their base, they do this so that they could find a way to neutralize or contain for research and if possible, use it for their own benefit to gain advantage whenever they needed, in truth, there's no leader or any form of leadership despite they have the original on their side, their no-nonsense and gritty attitude combined with selflessness and strong sense of duty and morality, a trait coming from their progenitor, effectively their chain of command are very flexible and adaptive though they are act as if were obedient machines often complied by other races no matter what ranks, they are somewhat socially inept often they took the words literally and took it to the heart because of the result of isolation for so long before they met the alien races in the first place, so it may result some awkward moments of reasoning and diplomacies.

Their technologies are advanced and tactical came from the researched objects they kept it from their many facilities, but one thing what makes them unique is their FTL technology called "Quantum Slip Drives" able to traverse at a incomprehensible distance just as far as to entire Universe which is 46 billion light years (their unit of measurement is Aleph), making that the space is much more infinite than it initially thought, making them able to expand their influence rapidly though they are not interested in conquering worlds, only anomalies, and they spread thin and far but what makes up for it is able to produce fresh clones while travelling within their fleet resulting creating an armada as they go on.

///// Engineer's personal audio log NM-420-AT (08/03/4048):

"Can't believe it happened so quick the moment we went to this hellhole of a galaxy. M-most of our fleet are missing and hopefully they made it out alive but for others... are not so fortunate, getting attacked by a swarm of alien ships, we tried to get away with our slip drives but this place somehow we're unable to get back to our base so we're... stuck here with those things.

So where to start? I am NM-420-AT a system engineer, I was created inside of 62-ND Replication Facility, and for many years, I stationed at AML-43 Forward Outpost in Sanford A-10 Dwarf Universe, I'm here to monitor the entire ship's system along with other clones to keep it clean and full capacity. Of course I'm in the HPR-66N, a real piece of artwork, massive space for thousands of clones to live in here and to create more of us, big storage unit, and a large dry dock enough to fit a large capital ship and to make one as well, they are a lot of these with different variants in different Sectoral Clusters and Universal Sectors, but I never been in there before in my entire life only seen some of them.

spacer.png

HPR-66N

The chaos began when we're entering in the slip space something went wrong that is somehow "it" dragged us out all of us that is impossible to some eldritch beings able to drag someone when they're in light space or in our case, slip space, we were travelled in groups and now some of us were missing and others got destroyed. What makes these things are so aggressive, no one knows and no one care enough to explain, but we do know they're just as any anomalous beings like separated from the aliens in our real space, as for now, we somehow able to shake them off and remain hidden within the nebula hopefully it will mask our energy signatures from them and hope most of them were survived this ordeal. We're building up the numbers from replicators now and as for now our mission is to find that source of disruption and put an end to this... there's no turning back now but to move forward. We are currently fixing this ship back to shape and as soon as we finished it then we have to move out."

-End of personal audio log

HPR-66N

This is a backbone of every Off-World armada, they are primarily function as a mobile base and ship production, despite it's size they are maneuverable able to re-orient itself quickly, it housed a large system capacitators allowing to put more upgrades to push for maximum performance. The function is able to produce Off-World ships ranging to small frigates to a capital class ships and supported with spacious crew quarters, large replicator units and a training simulation facilities to man ships. Massive cargo bays are intended to deliver goods or store resources for ship fabrication. The ship are not unarmed but capable enough to handle any enemies even when they are alone thanks to their durable hull and shield so much so, are a perfect cover for smaller ships while they are fixing inside of it, while guarded by numerous fighters docked inside by spacious hangar. It has a large hyperspace core able to traverse at large distance but at the cost of slower charge. Since their designs are utilitarian, it can be retrofit its modules and system so easily while they are well-protected to adapt situation.

Deployment successful assessing the situation... // Date of deployment: 03/25/4049

Sector clear and no technical abnormality has been scanned...

Warning: Slip Drives has been disabled, recommended to activate conventional FTL drives

Current Location: AV1-22 Universal Sector (AV1-22/AG Galaxy: 237, -407)

Objectives:

  • Find the lost A1/ABN-40 C8 fleet and their whereabouts
    • Should encounter the remaining survivors, continue with their main objectives
  • Assess the severity of anomaly and report to the AML-43 Forward Outpost
  • Capture and analyze the entities

///// Exploration log GJ-102-AL (04/28/4029):

"We're here now, and now the Slip Drives can't do a squat while we're inside of it, we're basically stuck here in the Red Zone for God knows when we'll able to land back to the Forward Outpost, comforting I guess. At first, we were hesitant when we assigned ourselves as if we were asking for death but the poor guys of ABN-40 are still inside of Red Zone may be still alive probably hiding somewhere after the attacks by those things, and we can't let them die, us clones never leaves another clones behind.

This universe's galaxy is empty and dead, all what we can see is nothing more than a bunch of asteroid fields and ship derelicts from different sectors, we were hoping to encounter even for a sliver of civilizations so that we may understand what is happening but there's none, I hope I'm wrong, I don't know if all of those natives were wipe out by them many years prior before our arrival then this is much worse then we initially thought."

-End log

///// Exploration log GJ-102-AL (05/03/4029):

"It's been so long since ever since we arrive here in this "ghost galaxy," it's boring but I can't shake the feeling that something terrible coming right at us at any moment but I digress, HK-092-AO, our astro-scanner specialist, I told him if there's something interesting but he said there's nothing out of ordinary other than playing a game on himself sitting looking on a monitors, can't blame him though that's a scanner's job he must've been bored and try to amuse himself to kill some time. To think about, it's really strange that the ABN-40 got ambushed so easily the moment of their arrival, we expect ourselves that they'll do the same thing on us but we're in a empty void of space, whatever it is, the CIE Unit works like a charm.

Some of Innovator and Subjugator guys even speculates that the fleet got dragged out by it is because it has something to do immense energy during Slip Space transition and intersects with their mysterious disruption causing a catastrophic event causing them to spread throughout this galaxy, that's what they said, fortunately, the Innovators from AML-43 did install the latest CIE Unit on our ships that matches the frequencies of that disruption may be the reason why we stay in groups though it won't last long our navigators having a hard time to analyze their next route and as much as the system engineers is also having to fix all of electronics 24/7. As for right now, there's nothing interesting happened, we kept making relays and leave it like bread crumbs as we go so that the Channel keep in touch with us though we barely hearing from them but still its reassuring that we're not alone in this seemingly dead world."

HPR-56E

A smaller counterpart of the original HPR-66N, they function the same as the bigger iteration though it only limited up to medium class ships to produce, since they are small, it's performance are not as great as the HPR-66N though slightly more maneuverable, their size is fit enough to the bigger variant which it is able to build it and support more ship production and allowing to form a smaller fleet away from the main fleet.

"W-Where's everybody? The moment we got out from the slip space everyone is gone, we're alone now in this ship graveyard. Unfortunately, we can't go back because of our slip drives somehow disabled but the engineers will try fix it as soon as possible. As for now we will try to find the others and find what happened back there earlier... our scanners picked up several- multiple energy signals coming from all side and its coming in hot! Gonna brace it and hope we make it out alive."

AG-98

A large battlecruiser and a power house of Off-World fleet, they are durable for both hulls and shields allowing to take huge punishments from enemies. They are versatile in role as they can used as a combat freighter, a miner or a salvager, a boarding ship, a carrier, and even act as a defensive platform. This battlecruisers able to take down a group of enemies and become more deadly if it improve their systems due to their large system capacitators and able to move at several light-years.

MLUS-120B

A large freighter ship used for mining, salvaging and carrying cargo, allow to carry the task in the deep space thanks to its hangar and decent durability able to fend for themselves against pirates and other hostiles. It can become either an effective combat ship or a miner/salvager ship or both due to system capacitators though being as a utility ship it is best not to confront upfront as it is designed mainly for cargo transport.

///// Audio Log AC-439-AO (07/23/4048):

"Everything is gone to hell, our system's fried from getting caught by that "thing" in the Slip Space and then we're all alone, we are getting our comms back contacting our guys of our missing fleet but we can't keep in touch with the guys from the forward station for some reason, it's all static-y and barely came up a single phrases that we had to decipher. The FTL backup drives are still fine and we're able to move around about, so far we never seen any life yet especially these planet we currently stay at, our surface scan shown to these planet are empty, sure there's many aliens building are abandoned but the strangest thing from our scans picked up huge energy spike coming from the building not coming the power grid but the rest of the city, if not, most of the planet's surface covered by those things probably some asteroid rocks that cover the entire planet but it doesn't make any sense why the people are magically disappear like.

Not only that, those little jutted rock things is... "moving" as if it has a mind of their own, it's best not to mess with those rocks by sending the scouts down. Recently we saw an asteroids we saw that has same energy signatures similar from the planet we just scanned, there's something bizarre in that asteroids they're in a formation as if it were arrange and ready for a pick up by a convoy of freighters, and more weird thing is that these chunk of rocks has some metallic objects sticking out from it with some red stripes in it. Sadly, those things were alive as the asteroids seems to reorient themselves and somewhat pointing right at us, we better not to disturb those especially we're alone in a dead of space, who knows these could vaporize us the moment it touch our ship's hull or worse, and as for now, we are leaving from this fever dream of a weirdness, it isn't safe here. Hopefully, we can meet each other and getting the hell out from this galaxy."

AB-32B

This frigate are used many roles ranging to combat to exploration, since they are frigate, their mobility and size allows to engage large enemy ships while assisting friendlies in the fight. It has a decent amount of system capacitators to boost its performance and a decent jumping range.

FC-32

The clones demanded a ship that is able to move swiftly while able to take some punishment, resulting creating FC-32 assault frigate, thanks to their armored hulls and shields, and its maneuverability allows to displace to one place to another and quickly turn entirety of it to change its course. This frigate are to use to take on assault on defense or flank behind the enemy's lines.
