Hurricane-Class Dreadnought by technokoopa
Hurricane-Class Dreadnought
About 200 years ago, colonists aboard the Republic colony ship Griffon decided to stage the destruction of their ship in order to start their own lives outside the control and influence of the Novus Orsa Republic. After the successful ploy and the half-hearted investigation done by Republic investigators, the two thousand colonists with the help of fold drive-capable freighters moved deep into the Southwest Region of the star cluster until they came across a habitable world. The system was called “Improbus” which means “ruthless” in the ancient Terran language of Latin as a reminder of the control they were under while they were in the Republic. Deeming the democracy that the Republic uses as “harsh and discriminatory” as a form of government, the colonists chose to use a form of monarchy with a king and queen based using the people who helped them escape the Republic as the ruling party. Eventually a parliament was formed but the king and queen have the final say on matters and decisions of parliament.

Because there were so few colonists, an effort to increase the population by artificial gestation (aka test tube babies) was put into effect and after twenty years increased the population from two thousand up to two million. Anyone who was conceived naturally by the original colonists was of “honorable bloodline” and had a higher standing than those who were artificially breed. However, an extensive educational program was put into place at the moment the children are able to actually retain knowledge that taught them how to do jobs and be raised to do that specific job as well as their place in society to minimalize or eliminate any possible rebellion. These jobs ranged from agriculture and waste management to production assembly and security.

Not fearing any possible exposure to the Republic, the Improbus Dominion continued to expand its territories around the outer edges of the star cluster using vessels with current weaponry from the Republic as well as designs. However, the Dominion knew that it could fall behind the times without contact from the Republic much like the pirates and sent people to infiltrate the Republic. Eventually some of them worked for the companies who helped assist the Empire and the Federation secretly in their development. Knowing this fact, the Dominion was able to create brand new ships with the new technology the Empire and the Federation was using and set out a plan to get rid of all three nations in the star cluster putting everyone under the rule of the Dominion. Unfortunately, this plan had failed and now the Dominion is at risk of exposure to all three nations as their spies are being detained after an intense investigation by Admiral Trent of the Republic and the discovery of their frigates in the Transitus system where the wreck of the Griffon resides.

While the Dominion has reached a population two billion in the after almost two centuries, the fact of the matter is that it is still less than the Republic and that the vast majority of the population is working mostly logistical and mundane work for the Dominion. In order to expand the military power and influence of the Dominion Royal Navy, the king and queen approved of the notion to make the ships as automated as possible with the frigates and destroyers being completely automated. In order to accomplish this, Minions who were among the colonists were instructed to create brain modules similar to their own but without a will or self-consciousness of their own. While the Minions were reluctant at first to follow such a request due to the strides their kind had taken to prevent such actions taken involving their kind, the Minions determined that as long as there is no will or self-consciousness that the modules would be no different from those found in drones. Once that reluctance was put aside, the new ships began to roll off the assembly lines.

Once it was discovered that the Republic, the Empire, and the Federation were building ships larger than destroyers, namely the Republic’s Chimera battle cruiser, the Empire’s Myrmidon battleship, and the Federation’s Thrasher dreadnought, the Dominion did not waste any time in the development of their own dreadnought design. Sticking to the modular design of the Gailstorm and the Tornado, the Dominion Royal Navy design team stuck with the vertical orientation of the destroyers by taking two of the Tornado sections to be mounted vertically and two Gailstorm sections to be mounted horizontally to a completely new central section. The central section from the front looks like a plus shape with a four-point star pointing diagonally. To confront the heavier ships of the other nations of the star cluster, designers decided to drop the idea of collapsible heavy cannons and use the same design of heavy cannons the Federation uses on the Thrasher dreadnoughts. However, instead of firing projectile rounds like the Federation, the engineers changed them to fire heavy particle beams to save on loading the ship up with any more ammo. There is also a mega particle beam cannon in the center of the central fuselage which serves as the ship’s primary weapon. The new ship, designated the Hurricane Dreadnought, was also designed as strictly a manned vessel though there is some automation on board to handle the more mundane functions of the ship such as maintenance and repairs. The total firepower of the ship includes the mega particle beam cannon, thirty-six quad heavy particle cannons, twenty-four medium railguns, sixty-four dual railgun turrets, and eighty dual laser cannons. This makes it the most heavily armed vessel of its class between the four nations and the multitude of engines makes it the fastest of its class. However, the ship was designed only to fight against the Chimera, Myrmidon, and Thrasher class of ships. It is unknown if the vessel is capable of going one-on-one with the Republic’s Wyvern class battleship, but since there is only one Wyvern there isn’t much of a chance of it engaging any Hurricanes unless the Wyvern is committed to a battle against them.

Once that reluctance was put aside, the new ships began to roll off the assembly lines.

After the design of the Gailstorm was put into mass production, it did not take long for the Dominion to commission the construction of a destroyer-type of ship based on the Gailstorm’s modular design. Utilizing two complete frigate sections, two pairs of wings and struts, and an enlarged version of the frigate hull plus the connection pylons, the newly made Tornado did not take long to go from design to mass production. Being a larger design, the ship was outfitted with far more weapons such as fourteen forward medium railguns, thirty-two dual railgun turrets, and forty-eight dual laser cannons. The mass and amount of firepower has marked the ship as a heavy destroyer however the number of engines on board allows the ship to move faster than other ships of its class. To handle the size and the added complexity of the ship, there are five brain modules made by the Minions to handle all of the shipboard functions. While not produced in the same number as the frigates, the destroyers are still lethal on their own and when a flotilla should not be a force to reckon with. There are also a few manned versions of the Tornado, but much like the Gailstorm, these are specialized versions and have a different paint job to designate as such.

Once that reluctance was put aside, the new ships began to roll off the assembly lines.

Starting with frigate-sized ships, the Dominion knew that not only would the ships have the best offensive and defensive capabilities found on Republic, Empire, and Federation ships, but they also needed to have a distinct advantage the others do not have: speed. To that purpose, the ships had engines in both the central fuselage and in the wings. The ships were also able to be used in an atmosphere, a trait primarily reserved for the Pygmy frigates that were converted for use by the SAGATs from the Republic. Seeing the retractable weapon enclosures of the Empire as suitable to reduce drag in an atmosphere, the Dominion chose not to use any missile launchers relying instead on dual railguns and dual laser cannons similar to Imperial weapons. The frigates possess eight of each. The ships also possess two forward mounted medium railguns for use against larger and slower moving targets. However, due to space limitations between everything else on board, there are only four rounds for each of the railguns so the frigates use it sparingly. While there are windows in select areas of the ships, they are there due to the original designs being manned for testing as well as for the larger ships that will be manned, the latter using the main frame of the frigate as part of the modular construction practices of the Dominion. Between the ammo for the railguns and turrets, the nanomachine storage bays to repair the armor and systems, the shield generators, the engines, and the power supply to run it all, there are hardly any amenities for a living crew. However, a few of the frigates have been modified with a crew but those ships are designed for more specialized missions such as search-and-rescue (painted white and red) and covert ops (dark gray or black).

WF:AT 6 - The Unforgiving Past - Part 6
Warring Factions: Alternate Universe #6
The Unforgiving Past - Part 6

Two weeks have past since Supreme Chancellor Lee was arrested. However, Lee's words before his incarceration has let the newly promoted Admiral Trent to investigate a possible faction involved with the attempt of promoting war between the Republic, the Empire, and the Federation. The answer lies in the wreckage of the Griffon, a colony ship believed to be destroyed in an accident 200 years ago. As he sends Captain Drew and his Dragoon-B Heavy Destroyer to the Transitus system to investigate, what Drew finds will be more than anyone should have ever found.

Part 6 begins the new arc concerning a hidden group and will soon come to light causing chaos in the Novus Orsa star cluster. Due to the holiday season, work on part 7 will be placed on hold until after the new year. Enjoy and happy holidays!
