AG 18 - A tour of the Granfaloon . Welcome to the Granfaloon. Take some 10 minutes to take a tour of a Galamoth class Industrial Battleship. (warning: seriously long page) . GCS 04 - "Granfaloon" Industrial Battleship. Galamoth class Battleships are battle refits of the Galamoth Admin Carrier, and they form the core of the ArcheoGenis forces, being at the same time battle ships, mobile bases, mining colonies and production sites. 7 Km long, they have 3 command decks: the Cruise Bridge, the Battle Bridge (deep inside the hull) and the Administration Center (reserve bridge). We're taking a peek at the Cruise Bridge, since it's the most used, and one of the most active parts of the Granfaloon. (The main bridge is nearly 100 meters long, so I hope you don't mind if I only present a section of it) This is the core of most ship's operations, the Granfaloon's main EAP interface is there, as well as the Captain, and many officers, artificial humans, drones and security guards. "Hi everyone!" Due to the EAP's efficiency, most people on board call these folks "the RCP" (Redundant Command Personnel) behind their backs. Psychic details are always present to protect the bridge, operate the Psi-Array or Perception Drive, or... ehm... socialize. Here we see a cute Psi-Op hooking up with a 2nd generation psychic. The "Rail Chair" was designed by the Galamoth's EAP to reduce the captain's stress by giving him some illusion of control over a ship 3 to 5 time smarter than a human. It allows the Captain to roam the bridge freely and it also slides directly down to the Battle Bridge. Top view. (In sci-fi, I really like irregular, monochrome tiling. It gives the impression of some kind of circuitry running beneath) The Granfaloon is also a production site for ArcheoGenis' BioMechanical wargear. The Serial Cloning Facilities produce Ancient stem cells to create BioMechs. Unlike in the traditional Cloning Pits, the parts are not cloned freely: they are poured into a cast, thus cutting the cloning time from weeks down to mere hours for each part. The monorail then carries the cast to a storing area, then to the assemling workshops. "Casted" parts are weaker than the freely cloned ones, and they regenerate more slowly, but they allow a level of mass production unthinkable with the other method, which is only used to create elite models like the Rig Veda or the older Indra. "Queen" class BioMechs then assemble all parts quickly and efficiently, and send them on their way. Queens are integrated in the ship's structure, they feature 6 hands and 2 "joint welders". These are micro-injectors spraying an unidentified variety of core cells that seem to slide on one another allowing the parts to move. The Percepion Drive is a huge device, occupying 30% of the ship's length. As you may know, it bends quantum physics to provide the ship with gravity, it can be used for instant relocation, and it can provide the ship with near invulnerability, for a time. The PD can be ONLY engaged the moment ALL personnel on board percieves a determined ship status as true. To do so, each person on board undergoes extensive training and periodic drills. Even so, with guests, noobs, business delegations and yes, even tourists, there are always about 50 to 100 untrained people on board, each one of those being enough to prevent the PD from functioning. So, at every deck throughout the ship, hundreds of these emergency stasys chambers are placed to deal with the problem. Untrained personnel is shut tight inside and put into stasys, taking them out of the equation. Then, the PG can be correctly operated. The Psi-Ops coordinate the minds of all others, and VOILA :) And now, the most powerful known technological weapon: the Fake Singularity Gun (FSG). It fires a small black hole toward enemy formations, annihilating them before the singularity evaporates. Despite the name, the FSG fires an ACTUAL singularity, so its use has been forbidden by AG command in the vicinity of any mass big enough to make it permanent, especially inside star systems. But then, why the name FSG? (In these pics, you can see the Granfaloon holding other ships in its hands, ready to dock them) [Top Secret] Ok, here's the cool part: the FSG is nothing but a bunch of LARGE tubes and shiny lights. The massive public campaign ArcheoGenis put up about the new weapon simply convinced people that it works, so the Perception Drive can engage and MAKE IT FIRE FOR REAL! Of couse, the "Elite Technicians" assigned to the FSG must be put in stasis beforehand. The hangar behind the FSG The Granfaloon is armed with 8 Stream Cannons, 16 lazer turrets, 16 artillery turrets, 1 quad turbolaser, 2 double disruptor turret. Oh, and I forgot the 4 75mt long interplanetary warheads :) Detail of the weaponry. The Granfaloon and the other battleships, unlike the Galamoth, feature better sub-light enginesto be able to maneuvre more efficiently in battle. Meet the crew! These are the typical people you can meet on board a ArcheoGenis GCS Galamoth class ship. Operations crew 1- MAOX "Pinocchio" drone 2- AG Worker 3- AG technician/engineer 4- AG Chief Scientific crew 1- AG Artificial Human 2, 3- AG Science Officers 4- AG Medical Officer Military 1- MAOX Security/Infantry 2- MAOX Secret Service/Infiltrator 3- AG Psi-Op 4- AG Generation 2 Psi-Op Space Forces 1- MAOX Astronaut/Pilot 2- AG Officer 3- AG Captain (The Agents' uniforms are perfect for anything starting with an A) Tourist. (Love this guy, I found it in the Agent's giant robot :D) ArcheoGenis folder HERE ArcheoGenis group HERE Note #1: The Granfaloon is simply a refit of my Galamoth, I did it just before dismantling it. In the future, I might post the interiors of all my nanoscale ships, to make the refits more interesting. Note #2: The name "Granfaloon" comes from another boss in Castlevania: Symphony of the night. Note #3: The COOL space background is an early digital work by Inga Nielsen NOTE #4: This class of ships has been resized to accomodate plot needs in Christian Schlichting's series UMRC Project. -WHEW- This was a BIG page! I hope you took the time to read it, comments are welcome! (more notes will posted as they come to mind)
