Basic Description

Description of the Ship:

The Garboteen Light Battleship was built after it became obvious that the Gohorn government did not have the resources to construct a massive fleet of larger Zarter and Sojvadan class ships.

The Garboteen was made to be smaller and more compact, saving resources and money but giving generally the same effect as a Battleship. The Garboteens are more common than the Zarter class, but not quite as powerful.They were designed to supplement a fighting force and deal with small flotillas of enemy vessels.

They are still rather rare vessels to find however and are restricted to some of the higher ranks.

Internal Room Layout

Compartments: 13 - Medical Facilities

In a bid to streamline the medical process, the Garboteen's sickbay is like one long tunnel with beds at either side. It is so doctors can move from one patient to another quickly, without having to worry about which way he/she is going.

The Doctor's offices are clustered at one end of the 50-meter long medical bay and the Medical research facilities, critical care and special treatment wards are at the other end, with 1 door on either wall.

Equipment trolleys are staggered at different points, so the medical instrument a doctor may need is not very far away.

Two doors lead in to the Medical Bay, one at each end and both doors are located near a lift.

Internal Room Layout

Compartments: 14 - Main Engine Room

The Engine Room is located above the main Vortex drive area, but there are stairs and lifts down to the Vortex Maintenance rooms. The Engine Room is called so because they regulate the Vortex drive from it and the rest of the systems on the ship. The Main Engine Room is a large, square room with a big circular table in the middle.

From either side of the room, four corridors lead off. One to the lifts which will take you to the rest of the ship and one for the stairs and lifts from which you can access the Vortex Drive. A third to access a medium sized room, which deals with power distribution, and the fourth will take you to the rest of the deck.

As is always necessary in any Engine Section, space is essential because there are lots of Engineers. The corridors on this deck are twice the size to accommodate lots of people during a crisis. Consoles line all of the walls and the large table is covered with them too.

Internal Room Layout

Compartments: 15 - Command Center

The Command Center for the Garboteen and all the other classes of battleship is identical. The room is circular with consoles along the circumference of the wall. Facing towards the fore sections of the vessel is a large screen that spans from floor to ceiling. The room's ceiling is 5 meters off the floor, to allow room for the Captain of the vessel to stand on the elevated level of the "command deck."

The Command Deck (CD) is a circular platform 3 meters in diameter, raised 1 meter off the deck of the ship. There are rails all around this command deck, with only one staircase on and off it. Attached to the rails are sensor monitors and smaller consoles so if necessary, the Captain can do all the basic functions of the vessel.

Each Captain has his own preference towards seating. Some prefer it, others prefer to stand. So when a new Captain boards his vessel, he can either get rid of or bring in a chair for him to sit on. This chair would be fixed in front of the fore most consoles of the railing, facing the screen and can swivel around the rails.
