AOM Alex, 506.17.03 @ 06:00

Name: United Nations Heavy Fightercraft Carrier Ceaser
United Nations Registry: UNSS-1321-CMIIHFC-412
Commissioning Date: Hyperdate: 499.1.1 (1st of January, 2499)
Class: Ceaser Class
Type: Mark II Heavy Fightercraft Carrier
Classification: Forward Assault Vessel

The Ceaser class carrier is the biggest carrier ship in the galaxy. Dwarfing its DeGaulle class counterpart, the Ceaser class is a giant, moving fighter deployment platform, containing many more fighters. However, the ship is also much slower and not very well armed, its fighters are meant to provide all of the protection it needs. Only one Ceaser class carrier is needed per engagement, the sheer number of fighters it is capable of deploying means that further carrier support is not necessary.

Length: 823 meters
Beam: 254 meters
Height: 25 decks (125 meters)

Standard Compliment: 625 crewmembers (30 senior officers, 595 crewmen, specialists, and junior officers)

Vortex Drive Manufacturer: Vexicorp Variable Geometry MXXX/PORQ-DG-MAN Class

Significantly slower than the DeGaulle class carrier, the Ceaser's excess power ensures that it is better defended than its smaller counterpart. However, the result is the slower speed of the vessel, whose Vortex Drive is especially designed for carriers, allowing for greater acceleration for the ship to either move away from hostilities or speed up to reach the battle in time.

Main Bridge
The Main Bridge of the DeGaulle class carrier is its central hub during times of normal oeprations. It is a long room, consisting of two seperate parts. In the Main Bridge area, the Captain's chair is the central feature. Around the central chair are other stations including operations, communications and tactical. At a station behind the Captain stands the Flight Relay Officer, who relays the Captain's orders between Flight Control and the Main Bridge when he is on the bridge. At the fore is the pilot's semi-circular set of consoles, and along the front wall are windows with a holographic display web installed in the struts, to zoom in on far away objects or focus on certain visuals. One door at the rear of the bridge leads to an elevator

Over to the Captain's left is the Plot Room, which contains a tactical display screen (a transparent glass chart overlaid with computer lines and symbols to show borders and ships) and "tactical table," (slang: TacTable) a circular table from which the Captain can command the battle. Above the table a holoimage of the battle situation can be displayed in three dimensions, supplementing the tactical display screen which also shows the status of other vessels. Six crewmembers man the Plot Room in times of battle, only two when the vessel is at normal operations.

Flight Control
A circular room with a main table at the centre, much like the Plot Room. The screen on the aft wall displays the status of all of the ship's fighters when they have been deployed into combat. The central table displays a holographic projection of the battle, whilst the fore wall consists of the same holographic floor-to ceiling windows as the main bridge, allowing for an real view of the ensuing combat. Around the Flight Table there are other, free-standing consoles all facing towards it. A Squadron Leader, permanently assigned to Flight Control, coordinates the battle, and the Captain may also be present.
