Sling some criticism on the ship in my general direction would you?
A kickass ship.
Real long “when will it fucking end?!!!” version:
The ELM Olympus Mons is an ELM Alliance DSF2 class frigate. A prototype frigate, co-developed by the ELM Alliance and the Silician Union with economic sponsorship of the privately owned Earth based company Factura Genesis. She was developed and highly optimized for solo reconnaissance missions using state-of-the-art technology such as an experimental zero mass generating drive core and Scandium strengthened kinetic shields. The Olympus Mons is the first frigate to have had such a large ZMG core fitted. This is due to the fact that the immense radiation emitted from the Terbium utilized in the core, could previously only be contained using large pockets of redidium. The size of the pockets required could only be fitted on Cruisers or destroyers. However, combining scandium sinks with compacted redidium elutors, the problem has been overcome, though at an almost unbearable cost.
Commissioned in 2134 she was initially captined by Arageus Shoel, a silician, but she was put under the command of the human captain James Mason when Shoel was killed during a mission in the Neosus Verge. Participating in various missions and secret operations the Olympus Mons is a valuable asset to the ELM Alliance. She served a crucial part in the battle of Bedhian where she destroyed two Bedhian cruisers, despite being vastly outsized and outgunned.
The Olypus Mons is named after the tallest mountain in the Sol system, a volcano on Mars, formed during the Amazon epoch.
The Olympus Mons is constructed with twodecks: The upper command deck with a 270 degree line of sight through specially reinforced redidium windows. Everything apart from the ships offensive systems is controlled from the upper command deck. Utilizing Silician CMD monitors the crew can keep track of the ship from their stations. The helmsman steers the ship from behind the engine stations.
The second deck is the engineering and storage deck, where the ZMG drive core is located along with the lower command deck. The engine personnel keep track of the ZMG core from two small stations located beside the stairs leading down to the level. The ships offensive systems are controlled by a crewman located on the lower command deck. This level of the ship also holds the airlock.
That said, I’m a man of few words.
