Sisters of Eve have long used this ship to lead disaster efforts her generous bays and medical facilities have long held the front lines against dispare in times of crisis.

Sisters are just as committed ot understanding the universe as they are to charity but in the times of war between the four empires the sisters donations are running dry forcing the Sisters to seek other means of providing for the refugees.

The solutions was to convert thier fleets of donated ships into astrometric ships. This continued to fund the sisters charity efforts and help sate thier wanderlust for the universe.

This capitol ships massive bays easily provided room for the complex sensors able to analyze any local phenomenom and tailor a complex program to reproduce the effects elsewhere for study.

Her conservatist design leads to have much less mass of a ship of similar size allowing her into wormhole space with cargo aboard easily.

When she energizes her scientific core the astrometrics computers and advanced sensors drain all other systems making her immoble for the duration while she analyzes the local space and possibly any phenomenom. The amount of energy generated would reveal to the entire system her location. However there is nothing in the system that will not be lit up when she goes off either revealing to location of everyone on the overview as well.

Despite this useful tool she is not a combat type capital ship and many of the designs nomrally afforded into a capital ship such as armored compartments and shield barriers makes her much more suspectable to damage. A dreadnaught can easily make quick work of an Oberon or a small squadron of battleships.

Wow, dude, love the concept of Astrometric-Cap ships. I do wonder if a dev might trip over this page and find the idea intriguing enough to look into implementing it :o

Banana-Cap for the win!

Oh I felt inspired by star trek and Home World for this one. And no, I haven't had a developer swing by the idea I had on the forums to acknowledge its existence.

I love the concept and the model. It would be great to have it ingame, as a true peaceful exploration-charity ship, and devoting it to those roles. Great!

Thank you, It would be nice to see it ingame but I highly doubt it.
