[SHIP] Huffi-Muffi-Guffi! The Spathi Eluder

Postby stylesrj » Sun Aug 13, 2017 7:42 am

Captain Fwiffo was flying his Eluder class vessel away from all the conflict involving the Ur-Quan factions when he encountered a small white and orange scout ship on an intercept course towards him.
He naturally engaged his engines and started moving away quickly only for the scout ship to give chase.

Just as the scout caught up to him, Fwiffo received a message saying they were from the Federation and asked what they were doing out in space. Because the Spathi are cowards by nature and culture, he immediately surrendered himself, his ship and the Secret Spathi Cypher and asked that the Federation would not try to hurt him.

The Spathi Eluder is designed to be fast in combat and armed with weaponry that would assist it in helping it get away from its foes.
Technically the Eluder is flying backwards and enemy ships are giving it chase while it fires its guns back at them in order to ward them off.


The main artillery weapon of this ship is the Backwards Utilising Tracking Torpedo or B.U.T.T for short.
This weapon fires a single missile at the enemy ship that does some heavy damage and causes secondary effects. The Federation also used the decoy technology used in the struts to improve the torpedo so that basic Defense Drones cannot target it.
The Spathi would normally use the tech to disable ships before fleeing combat but because the Federation are going into battle, the Eluder uses it to destroy their enemies.

The Weapons Room is so far to the right that it may be blocked out on some of the bigger foes.
There's not enough airlocks on the sides for my usual "Must vent everything quickly" playstyle. But that's just me. Although it would be a Spathi thing to vent the ship and get those evil intruders off ASAP.
The Piloting Room is 3x3 big, so if you're worried about the lack of oxygen bars not covering the whole room... well it's not that big of a deal, right?
