Thanks to the new technologies of the ship builder (fully recolourable weapons) and the introduction of layered armour (thank you SilverWingedSeraph), the Auriak have produced a new fleet of warships ready to do battle with all interstellar enemies.
Some of the ships have the same names as previous vessels, and some have changed roles. There are a few new warships which use the cutting edge of defensive and offensive technologies. Due to advances in computer automation technologies, the largest warships only need ten or twelve crew members to work at peak efficiency. Due to the size of the ships, crew members get around by warp gateways, the conventional corridors remain for emergency situations or exercise.
In the above picture, the top-most vessel is the Megarian, the most advanced Auriak starship currently in existence and the personal battleship of Supreme Commander Kyas. It's advanced beam is composed of nine modded megabeamers and looks really cool when they all fire in unison.
Just below the Megarian is the Elemental, advanced war cruiser. It has a jumbo sized Eulinium power core (big blue thing in the front) which provides energy for its Nova Beamer. These ships are flown by Auriak Commanders.
Below and in front of the Megarian is the Templar class battlecruiser. It is the Auriak heavy warship, for when things get serious.
Below and in front of the Elemental is the Archon starcruiser. It is the main line battleship of the Auriak fleet. Though lightly armed, it is still a force to be reckoned with.
At the bottom-left of the image is the Saurian carrier. In addition to launching hordes of fighters, it repairs smaller vessels.
Below the Archon is the Helian class destroyer. It fires swarms of drone missles to bypass enemy deflectors and rip apart smaller ships.
At the very front in between the Templar and Archon is the Firemoth yacht. It is not a dedicated warship, posessing only a small beam weapon. It is use primarily as a scout ship.
The last vessel in the formation is the Pod. It converts Zero-point Energy into matter, slowly growing into a complete starship. It is utterly useless in combat, except maybe as a distraction.
The vast majority of firepower on these ships is directed toward the front. Only the drone tubes (minus the two drone tubes on the front of the Helian), demeters, and the Firemoth beam have 360 degree firing arcs.
Also, these vessels for the most part screw the stock ships over completely.
