Description

Equipped with a sophisticated sensors suite and powerful data utilities, the Chronicle is a clerical workhorse, able to collect and process vast amounts of information. Often employed for census duties and interstellar exploration, the Chronicle is also a favorite of Evidenzkompanien, employed often for intelligence operations. With this fact in mind, Chronicle-class vessels are often placed under increased scrutiny by patrols, somewhat mitigating their effectiveness as a spymaster's tool.

The Chronicle is a clerical workhorse, able to collect and process vast amounts of information. It is often employed for census duties and interstellar exploration, being also a favorite of the Evidenzkompanien, utilized often for intelligence operations. With this fact in mind, Chronicle-class vessels are often placed under increased scrutiny by patrols, somewhat mitigating their effectiveness as a spymaster's tool. — Excerpt from an unknown Scribe in a review document: June 503. (F.S. 503)

The Chronicle-class Sensory Frigate is an administrative vessel of the Solar Confederation. The word Chronicle is defined as "a factual written account of important or historical events in the order of their occurrence.", referencing its role in recordkeeping and documentation.

Gameplay

The Chronicle currently serves a limited niche, being both a roleplay-oriented vessel by virtue of being part of SolGov, as well as fulfilling the job of data surveying and telecommunications. As a specialist, one would expect it to have a limited use, but its great at tracking down other ships due to low engine energy draws, and being generally unassuming. If another SolGov ship happens to be in the same sector as a Chronicle-class, it can provide a direct line of communication via their private channel to other vessels!


List of Standard Equipment:

  • Fully Built Telecommunications Array.
  • A decently-sized kitchen with a stocked fridge with complimentary cabbage.
  • Office equipment ranging from extra paper, to paper bins, pens and even red wax for seals.
  • Mining equipment including a hypersonic jackhammer for each locker.
  • Lightly equipped armory including two Energy Halberds and two Pistole Cs.
  • Tea mugs absolutely everywhere.

How Should I Pilot This?

This is a ship primarily geared for roleplay, and convenience. If you decide to pilot a Chronicle-class, I would recommend the fledgling captain in question to brush up on the Solar Confederation and its lore for the more authentic experience! General expectations of this ship is to be able to harvest data using survey tools to be able to sell it later to other ships for a profit, as well as maintaining the telecommunications array to ensure every other solarian ship in the area can communicate with you effectively! Highly recommend the ship to unexpectedly land on an occupied planet to make surprise 'inspections' on others when they least suspect it!


While it has two energy halberds, and two good mining tools, expect things to be slower when playing in this ship. It isn't meant nor designed to be a vessel to go through a regular optimization loop (as you can expect from the lack of RnD or medical on it), its meant to be able to express characters via a solarian backdrop! Write events down with psychotic scrutiny to detail as a Scribe, protect your crew as a Sonnensöldner, make sure the array and engines work perfectly as a Ship Engineer, clear perimeters, mine and build fortifications as a Field Engineer, assist your captain as an Overseer, and diplomatically harass other ships as a Solarian Captain!
