USS Discovery Battlecruiser Battle Ship Cruiser Turrets Big Battleship Giant
To be effective in the combat environment, you need to hit hard. Very hard. When it comes to bringing the pain, the USS Discovery brings it in spades. It is armed with seventeen forward-mounted 429-block AMC arrays and two forward mounted 1,253 block SK-BB Missile arrays. Is also armed with six, triple-gun 31-block AMC turrets, and twenty, two-gun 17-block AMC turrets.
Now, being able to dish out punishment does you no good if you can't take any either. The design of the USS Discovery is very protection-oriented, and has 4 lines of defense. The first line of defense are the array of twenty, two-gun AMC turrets which are arranged in such a manner as to give each gun the maximum possible field of fire. The second line of defense is the shielding. The shield rating on this ship is 857,726 with a recovery rate of 14,693 s/sec. The Third line of defense is the hull itself. The ship is encased in solid hardened hull all around, with very few areas that aren't covered. Then, the final line of defense is really against infiltration. In order to prevent someone entering the ship and wreaking havoc inside, the ship has an extensive series of bulkheads that divide up hallways and staircases so that, even in the event of a hull breach, the ship can still be protected. Also, to prevent griefing through the computers, the faction block and the weapons computers are separated in their own, sealed-off room with no doors to prevent them from being accessed by individuals with malicious intent.
Now, outside of combat you might face a situation where you need to go somewhere, but you aren't able to take the USS Discovery all the way to your destination (Such as to the surface of a planet that lacks the facilities needed for the Discovery to land there). To face this issue, the Discovery is equipped with a small, lightly armed, shuttlecraft so that these small runs can be made.
Aside from this, the USS Discovery features 34 wardrooms, 2 mess halls, an officer's lounge, a conference room, a brig, a science lab, a dedicated Command & Control Center, a Navigation Room, an Engine Control Room, and a series of internal passageways that go throughout the ship that lead to the turrets, so that you don't have to go outside the ship to activate them. Also, the lower superstructure has a completely flat bottom so that the Discovery can land on the surface of a planet without the need of a docking port (provided that the surface of the planet has been adequately prepared for the Discovery to do so).
That's all I really have to say about the ship, other than that I hope you enjoy it and please tell me of any ways that this ship can be improved. This is my very first submission, so, be gentle. Hope you have a great time, see you in space!
