The Hyperion</SPAN></SPAN> The oldest ship in the United Terran Federation. A destroyer that should have been destroyed more than a hundred times and still has survived as long as she has. A veteran of dozens of major engagements and countless skirmishes, refitted over a dozen times to keep her toe to toe on the frontlines, and the pride of the Federation’s fleet.</SPAN></SPAN> And now she is a training boat. The last stop before the “real” fleet for cadets, the last cruise before the rest of their careers... </SPAN></SPAN>So for those of you who see this and remember my RP "Durandal" this is meant to be a, hopefully, successful prequal to that RP. For those of you who don't know it well... This is a chance to be on equal footing cause everyone has probably forgotten most of the backstory and plot! Voyage of the Hyperion is meant to be your typical Space Opera. The crew on a warship and in this case greener then grass with only a handful of experianced crewmembers. It is meant to be a story of exploraition and discovery, but also conflict. Also for those of you who are partial or remember Durandal, there is very little to do with mecha. Fighters operate in space instead and while beam weaponry is prevailent it is used mostly in close range fights or in saturation attacks while missiles are used heavily due to their mass. So anyone interested?
