About the Ship

The Carnivore Class Cruiser is a heavily armed, heavily shielded, and heavily maneuverable ship. It was fielded by the Democratic Imperium of Nepleslia in YE 39 and finally was produced for the Nepleslian Star Navy by Nepleslian Arms and Munitions starting in early YE 42. The Cruiser is becoming known by those that have crews them as intrepid, audacious, unflinching ships.

The Carnivore Class looks long and slender from the side as it is much more lengthy than girthy or tall. At its rear it has plateaued bulges on either side and from those, triangular wing-like additions, with the pointy end of the triangle affixed to the plateaued bulges. In the center of those triangles are diamond-shaped, long sword-like engines.

The entire ship is green, as is suiting for a DIoN ship, which also has the crest of the Nepleslian Star Navy on either side of its slender sectioned hull. There is a main weapon on the tip or head of the ship, two secondary weapons on either side of the center of the ship, and two more weapons along the plateaued bulges, which are groupings of Curbstompers.

History and Background

The Carnivore Class fills a role in the Nepleslian Star Navy of DIoN as a heavy cruiser, somewhere along the lines of a Bison but with a much more sleek design. It was designed by engineers and developers of NAM and quickly produced to be on the front lines. within the first test periods and with the crews that used them, they were referred to as the “triple threat” in banter as a play on the three c's that alliterate within the name “Carnivore Class Carrier”.

Compartment Layouts

Below are the ship's more detailed layout schematics.

Main Armory and Secondary Armories

Located above the vehicle armory and above the main hangars and bays for deployment is the primary armory, which is expansive and quite large. It is more akin to a warehouse with stores of weaponry and ammo on its shelves and racks. Some more standard armories are located on the first main hangar deck as well as on the power armor deployment deck.

Vehicle Armory

The armory for vehicles is a place for fabricating additional weaponry or repairs to the weaponry of vehicles being worked on. Like the main armory, it is above the main hangar, shuttle, and power armor bay decks.


The Carnivore Class has a standard bridge on which major operations of the ship are handled by command staff, helm, and bridge operators. The ship has no CIC, so this functions as one.

The Carnivore has spread out its engineering rooms, making a boarding action that is out to take engineering unlikely. The ship contains three Standard ship engineering rooms.

Maintenance Conduits

Maintenance conduits are spread throughout the ship and are above and below all decks and centered around weapons systems. They have scrubbers in them to detect and get rid of hostile threats, from dust to drones and anything in between.

Medical Center

The Carnivore Class contains three Nepleslian Standard Starship Medical Bay located throughout the ship to make sure the wounded are tended to quickly in the heat of combat.
