HS-SE1-1A Ismâo'a (Searcher) - Class Ship

The Ismâo'a (Searcher) class is the basic scout ship used by Poku Saeruo Degonjo, this design has been in use since 724CY (YE 15).

About the Ismâo'a class

The Ismâo'a design is the latest class of scout ship used by the Poku Saeruo Degonjo. All of the older scout ships were either upgraded to the Ismâo'a-class or scrapped and recycled. The primary mission of these vessels is to locate and identify resources for the clan. Their secondary mission is exploration/recon. The interior is divided between crew needs and science labs.

Ismâo'a pronounced ēsmāō-ă


The Ismâo'a is based on a rounded rectangle making it a compact sleek design. The hull is painted in the standard yellow-green scheme. Four Tinvymai Tyokame (Plasma Drives) that provide propulsion for STL travel are seen on the winglets. Bay doors can be seen on the rear for support craft. The hull is standard Poku Saeruo Degonjo colored and features the Poku Afirmu (Clan Crest) on top. There are six Sumanâ-a Rotyka (Fusion Cannon) mounted on the ship. There is a sensor module mounted ventrally and dorsally, and there are four landing gear visible on the bottom.

Ismâo'a (Searcher)-Class


The Ismâo'a traces its design concept history back to 26 CY and the start of construction on the Sotâka Ruomâqi (World Station). Those ships were designed to explore star systems and search for resources that the Poku Saeruo Degonjo required. The ships had sensors and equipment for gathering samples and evaluating them.

The Ismâo'a expanded the role of the ship to include that of science vessel, at the sacrifice of carrying capacity. One way this was done was with the inclusion of the Surveyor. Ismâo'a was designed to be able to work alone or in small groups. This new paradigm makes the ship idea for the clan.

The Ismâo'a has three labs located on the lower deck. Each has the ability to be isolated from the ship's primary Damira Ruo'sa (Environmental Room). This isolation is used anytime a lab is working new samples to avoid contamination.

  • Planetary - this lab features equipment for studying the biology, botany, geology, meteorology of a world.
  • Stellar - this lab features equipment for performing detailed analysis of the objects in a system, eg: moons, comets.
  • Technology - this lab features equipment for analysis of technology used on a world, this includes, metallurgy, chemistry, and other aspects.
