Altarren Athena Corvette
The Athena corvettes were the last capital scale spacecraft developed by
Altarren Fleet Systems. Like the rest of Altarren's designs, the Athena
only saw construction and deployment within the Minar sector located in
the Mid Rim territories.
The Athena was to serve a more specific role than the Ares starships in
the Altarren Navy. Satisfied with the number of Ares starships constructed
over the past seventy years (only four other Ares were constructed after
the Athena's debute), they turned to create a faster vessel oriented more
to space combat than planetary assault.
The Athena featured an improved stardrive system which was supplemented by
improved lateral thrusters. The Class Four hyperdrive, which was standard
on the Ares, was replaced by a Class 3.8 on the Athena class vessels.
The Athenas filled their intended role as a heavy escort and patrol vessel
well. With a fleet full of their own Ares and Athena class vessels combined
with a variety of smaller craft purchased from outside sources, the Altarrens
believed they would be well-defended against any attack - the Empire would
later prove them wrong.
