FOUNDATION
The tale of the Republic of Eden begins several decades ago, with an offshoot colony of humanity.

*FULL DETAILS PENDING*




SCHISM
Over the past few years, groups of the Old Republic's leading caste began to have strong disagreements on certain matters. Inevitably, these disagreements sparked into full-blown conflict, with the Republic almost torn apart by civil war.

*FULL DETAILS PENDING*




REFORMATION AND STRUCTURE - IMPORTANT SUBFACTIONS
With the Republic slowly rising and recovering, it's important to keep in mind the current major 'factions' within it.

Republic Security:
A slightly politer way of saying 'armed forces', Republic Security is assigned to guard and patrol the Republic's borders.

*FULL DETAILS PENDING*




TECH
The New Republic predominantly uses energy/particle beam weaponry. They also make limited use of unguided and guided rocket-propelled munitions, and intelligence reports suggest they are developing remotely-controlled fighters.

*FULL DETAILS PENDING*




SHIPS

R.O.E. Wisp-class Fighter-Bomber Strikecraft
*IMAGE DATA UNAVAILABLE*
A super-compact fighter drone based off a starship assembly remote, the Wisp carries a pair of high-powered anti-capital missiles ideal for taking out enemy warships.
Special Feature: Remote Control - Unlike most strikecraft, the Wisp is controlled remotely from its mother-ship by a pilot using a special control interface. As it does not need to support a pilot, it is more compact and maneuverable than other strikecraft, without sacrificing offense or defense.




R.O.E. Consul-class Aero/Space Gunship
*IMAGE DATA UNAVAILABLE*
An ultralight gunship capable of withstanding re-entry, the Consul mounts a pair of rapid-fire Red Lasers, two rocket pods, and two A/STA/S-III missile launchers. It cannot achieve escape velocity on most worlds unless they have exceptionally low gravity, but may use specially-designed boosters or docking clamps to 'ride' out of atmosphere attached to larger vessels.
Special Feature: Gyro-Control - A holdover from Old Republic Legion Gunship designs, the Consul's maneuver array allows it to remain facing its intended target at all times.




R.O.E. Emissary-class Scout Aero/Space Flyer
Image
Size: 70.24
Capable of both withstanding re-entry and achieving escape velocity, the Emissary is a fast and agile scout craft, though it is also somewhat fragile. The Emissary is primarily used to scout out new worlds, quickly carry important individuals or vital cargo in relative safety, and patrol the Republic's borders. It is believed to be armed with three weapons total: two short-range, rapid-fire beams; and one larger, slower-firing beam. More combat-oriented designs are reported to replace the passenger/crew space with mounts for additional rocket/missile turrets.

Image
Special Feature: Battle Damage - the tips of the forward arms can be destroyed by enemy fire, revealing a small amount of the fragile understructure and components. These sections have only 40 HP, so they won't act as extra armour.




R.O.E. Envoy-class Multi-Beam Frigate
ImageImage
Size: 76.30
Crude in appearance compared to the sleeker Emissary-class, the Envoy-class was designed by refitting Old Republic mining haulers; robust yet maneuverable vessels designed to harvest ore from asteroid clusters. The processing area was stripped out, allowing for the installation of a larger reactor and a munitions area for forward-launched rocket and missile weapons. The mining beams have been replaced with small beam emitters perfect for engaging enemy fighters.

Now armed with multiple smaller beam weapons, special maneuver jets, and an overcharged reactor, the agile and maneuverable Envoy-class Multi-Beam Frigate is ideal for engaging groups of smaller craft, but cannot focus the majority of its weapons on a single opponent. As a result, it is frequently assigned to protect the Negotiator-class and Projector-class ships.

Special Feature: Heavy Armour - the Envoy-class is surprisingly durable thanks to its superheavy side plates, which can absorb considerably more punishment than one might expect. Given the presence of the munitions bay, a frontal attack is also unwise...




R.O.E. Negotiator-class Beam Destroyer
*IMAGE DATA UNAVAILABLE*
As its classification implies, the Negotiator packs an oversized beam weapon designed with the sole aim of engaging and crippling larger enemy warships. It has little in the way of weaponry besides its primary beam emitter.
Special Feature: Big F'ing Gun - The Negotiator's oversized cannon is not something you want to be hit by.




R.O.E. Diplomat-class Prototype Strike Carrier
*IMAGE DATA UNAVAILABLE*
Capable of deploying swarms of remotely-controlled strikecraft, the Projector is the New Republic's first foray into such craft. In order to cut down on pilot losses (and crew training costs) - a distinct departure from the Old Republic's approach to small craft - the craft are controlled from within the safety of the carrier itself by a team of specially-trained individuals.
Special Feature: Battle Carrier - As the Diplomat is only required to service and maintain a fleet of drones as opposed to an entire crew of pilots, it can afford to devote additional tonnage to offensive, defensive, and passive systems. As a result, it is generally better armed, armoured, and more maneuverable than other carriers of the same size class - without sacrificing strikecraft launch capacity.




R.O.E. Delegate-class Beam Cruiser
*IMAGE DATA UNAVAILABLE*
Expected to fulfill the role of standard-line warship for the Republic, the Delegate-class is an all-new design planning to incorporate both fixed and turreted beam weapons, possibly backed up by missile or rocket weaponry.
Special Feature: Undefined - Data Pending




R.O.E. Ambassador-class Battleship
*IMAGE DATA UNAVAILABLE*
The New Republic's new heavy warship, the Ambassador-class is a well-armoured ship that is armed with powerful beam cannon battery turrets. It also carries a small complement of the Republic's new Wisp fighters, though not as many as the Projector. True to its name, however, the Republic does not intend to deploy its Ambassador-class vessels except on the most vital of diplomatic missions, and only then to ensure the safety of Republic personnel.
Special Feature: Undefined - Data Pending

Updated with some outlines of what to expect in future, and a WIP version of the Envoy-class Multi-Beam Frigate.

Need to go back and polish the Emissary a bit as well.

Ed: Polished the Emissary a bit, as demonstrated by the new Battle Damage subsection.

I hope to add a special feature to each ROE ship to help make them a little more unique as a faction; some of these will be fairly simple, such as Battle Damage, whilst others might have a more significant active or passive effect on battle, such as having special armour sections. The Envoy and Emissary both have special feature entries.

Looks good so far, the ships look nice a clean which I guess is the look you were going for. I like how the 'special feature' theme gives a little extra character to each ship.

Minor update to the Envoy; added glowybits to the maneuver exhausts, and actual engine modules too. Main drives and maneuver drives use different thruster effects. Screenshot of test platform moving added.

These look nice, but are they going to be grey permanently? It'll make them the only colorless faction as far as I know. Just wondering if that is the design objective.

A faction that emerged out of rebellion wouldn't initially have painted ships.

Any details will be fairly limited for the time being, yes. I've never had much of a thing for overly ostentatious designs either.

The Envoy will certainly receive at least a little more detailing before it's finished.

I see your ships tend to be 'original' grey Arc, any particular reason or are you still deciding on a color scheme?
