This is the Wyatt James based off the Warships Excel Spreadsheet ESD. This is the ship used in my star drive campaign year 2505.

The ship has a surplus of 87 power points. It seems to me that those could be traded in for some hull points and extra systems installed. If the intent is to keep those power points, then they certainly would be useful when attempting to extend the range of the ship's starfalls.

I wanted to make sure that even if there is damage there is enough power to make sure critical systems are still able to be powered. that is a common issue with cruisers.. Any hit to power systems results in a very bad power hit. This way even if they get damaged there is a possibility that they can activate the cloaking device and sneak away to attempt repairs.

Good point. I was just thinking, in another context, that a typical capital ship optimally (depending on its design and systems) should have about 4 reactors, ensuring it still has 75% of its power output if it loses one reactor, while controlling the extra expense due to paying the base cost multiple times.

I definitely agree with having multiply redundant vital systems, especially on a warship. I didn't view this as a warship so much as a civilian science vessel with a little bit more protection. It does make more sense to have the extra power output then, especially since a cruiser has more room to absorb the extra size.

The purpose of this ship is to basically do reconnaisence of enemy territory. This ship is designed to be able to work alone if need be and still not be detected. One of the things that wasn't said in any of the External's documents was the usage of drive space detectors by their military forces. I am assuming that since they have such a strangle hold on their territory that drivespace detectors aren't in large supply as they are in Old space and are becoming in important verge systems still held by Vergians :)

One of the big things that I thought was important was the back engineering of enemy systems and the advancement of technology by various countries in a normal setting. This ship was ordered by Concord to be a ship that can patrol contested borders without being detected by enemy forces. As such it has new state of the art systems, that aren't yet available to other ships that haven't been retrofitted yet. In my campaign all new concord ships will be having access to this techology increases. Part of the Concord treaty states that all new technology increases will be automatically shared with Concord and that Concord is not required to recriprocate. This helps Concord maintain peace by having ships that are better than any other nation. Unfortunately in my campaign, Thuldian and Void Corp aren't sharing their technology as required. We'll see what happens in 2505 and 2506.
