Basic Description

Description of the Ship:

Every fleet of starships has the class of vessel who fulfils the majority of the fleet's day-to-day business. For the Terran Democratic Republic, this ship is the Catalena class.

A simply designed ship with medium speed, firepower and defensive systems, the ship is the 'work horse' of the Terran fleet, replacing the outdated Excalibur class of ship.

The Catalena class ship is designed primarily for the defence of the Republic - it is destroyers who patrol the borders of the Republic and keep the peace in far flung regions of space.

The perfect balance between speed and firepower, the Catalena destroyer provides a class of ship capable of carrying out most routine missions.

Main Bridge

The Main Bridge for the Catalena class ship differs from the Melbourne class Light Destroyer in that it adopts the bridge design found on the larger analogue vessels which is considerably more spacious than the smaller analogue module.

In the middle remains the Captain's chair. Over to his left is the Plot Room, which contains a tactical display screen (a transparent glass chart overlaid with computer lines and symbols to show borders and ships) and "tactical table," a circular table from which the Captain can command the battle.

In front of the captain's chair is the pilot's semi-circular set of consoles, and along the front wall are windows with a holographic display web installed in the struts, to zoom in on far away objects or focus on certain visuals.

Around the central Captain's chair are other stations including operations, communications and tactical. Two doors, one at the aft of the bridge and one over on the port side of the Plot Room lead away.
