UNS Vienna
A Deutschland Class assault cruiser in the service of the United Nations of Earth. One of many. But once, there were many more.
About this creation
The Deutschland class have not aged as gracefully as they could have. Update programs, while frequent and significant, are irregularly scattered. By the time an error is corrected, whole squadrons of Deutschlands could have been destroyed.

And have been.

While they are somewhat lightly armed for an assault cruiser, Deutschland class ships are not exactly intended for frontal attack. Perhaps "assault cruiser" is a misnomer.

However, they do participate in assaults. Supporting various, more famous capital ships, they hold back the swarms of heavy bombers so dear to the Coalition heart. Or heart substitute. Or equivelant, depending on species.



To make things more clear: the Deutschlands are by no means bad ships. While slightly behind the curve, they are still very, very dangerous against their intended enemies.

Namely strike craft, gunships, corvettes, supply ships, tankers, boarding shuttles, frigates, support destroyers and light cruisers.

They just can't survive being used against true ships of the line anymore.


That's a job for dedicated brawling ships, built to close in and slug it out with the enemy.

Which is why a Deutschland can outrun nearly anything big enough to be a real threat. Not weapons fire, obviously, but if you're fast enough hitting is more a matter of luck than skill or technological advantage.



Along the sides are windows into the crew rooms, and the exposed auxilary coolant systems which spell the difference between 'hellish, but livable' and 'just right'.

Life support is a tricky thing, you know.
Good thing humans aren't as fragile as Thyrendi.

All a human gets when the viewport polarizer stops working and harsh UV light floods the barracks is a nasty sunburn, a Thyrendi would be in the hospital for months with skin grafts.

Not that the viewport polarizers malfunction often, no, not at all...



This particular ship is the UNS Vienna, fifth in the series to be produced. She saw a tour of duty along the Corewards Front, was summoned home for refit to the Deutschland-IIID standard and reassigned to watch over the Centauri stars.

Not alone of course, she's just a part of a much larger defense fleet. Can't tell you exactly where in the Centauri cluster she serves of course, C.O.P. spies around every corner and all that, you know?

Ship motto: "There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven: a time to live and a time to die, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to destroy and a time to build, a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace."


Of course, the last years haven't exactly had a lot of times for peace in 'em.



Just demonstrating how combat manuevers work with this class of vessel.

There's a heckuvalot more than five Deutschlands, just so you know.

At least twenty seven still active, with more being produced every day. Overcrowding is the price you pay for having cheap, useful ships.


Oh, I forgot to mention the hangar. In the bow, there is provision for a wing of light fighters and a few shuttles. Or some medium fighters and bombers, as long as you don't mind not being able to evacuate nearly as quickly when things go down the tubes.




Anyway, you know the drill.


Also: go join the C.O.P. pronto! The Evil Empire of Malicious and Amusing Nastiness is foundering for lack of active members! You know you want to. Join the Emperor's loyal armies and help crush the pathetic, idealistic Earthlings today!

Hmm. I'll keep these things in mind. I like the C.O.P. recruitment thing.

Quoting Ryan T. M. This is good Areetsa! BTW Long time no see! I'm just stopping by again. go join the "Big collosal anything u wanna build" contest group and judge or enter! I'm judging it!
I fear I have far too many things to do at the moment, and nowhere near enough time to do them in. Sorry, but I'm two months late already, I can't afford any more delays. And thus, we learn why I never commit myself to a definite posting schedule any more.

You are correct. There are only a few million Thyrendi. Only about one million on the planet itself.

Quoting Awesome-o-saurus The Not-So-Great Areetsa, mah boi, Thyrendi are not vampires! Besides, UV rays don't give them death immediately, they give them cancer after the same amount of time exposed that gives the average Human a sunburn.
Well, of course Thyrendi aren't, but you mentioned vampire guys. Besides, if my sources are correct, an alien race stronger than the average will tend to have a dangerously low birthrate. That means Thyrendi are rather rare, by most definitions. Amirite?

Quoting Awesome-o-saurus The Not-So-Great I wasn't aware Italian food emitted UV rays. However, since I eat a lot of Italian food, I think I deserve to shoot UV radiation at people.
Garlic. Vampires abhor garlic. Okay, what about crucifixes? They're always allergic to those. Or salt mixed with sugar, that's a great way to keep them busy all night. They have to seperate them, you see. Don't ask why, it's like that thing with running water.

Quoting Awesome-o-saurus The Not-So-Great True, but once the vampire guys get on their proper clothes (turtle neck, ski mask, sunglasses, trousers, gloves, and boots?), then they can kick some posteriors. Who's fragile then?
The ones who die when they walk into an Italian restauraunt.

Quoting Awesome-o-saurus The Not-So-Great I'm glad someone else remembers the Thyrendi are sensitive to UV. However, they're hardly fragile beyond that. Though not able to handle much sunlight, they can still beat down any Human in a one on one fight. Nice ship too.
When you have to do the vampire thing and run away from a guy wanting to shoot you with a tanning lamp, that's fragile. It's all a perspective thing.
