The Battlestar

Seven hundred years following the disaster of the Republic's first "super"
warship, the Guargantua, the fleet decided to try it again with a slightly
smaller, yet more heavily armed vessel, known as the Battlestar.

The Battlestar not only presented an intimidating image, but also wielded
the firepower and starfighters to back up that image. The problem with the
Guargantua was that it lacked the firepower and starfighter support to back
up any threats of major action, which proved to do it harm on more than one

Unlike the original Guargantua project, the Republic opted to keep the
Battlestar highly classified and was quick to cover up the diversion of
funds for a deep space research station.

The Battlestar creeped across the outter territories of the Republic, quietly
putting an end to group after group of pirates and terrorists and never
engaging in any significant conflict, that was, until the incident at Pulug.

A Republic task force was amushed at Pulug by an unidentified alien fleet.
Two weeks worth of battle in the system prompted then Admiral Terrico to
order in the Battlestar to ensure a quick and decisive victory against the
alien threat.

The Battlestar entered the system just in time to reinforce the battered
task force. The alien fleet launched and all out assault on the Battlestar,
the task force taking up a standardized line formation with the smaller and
faster vessels forming a picket line while the Battlestar made up the main

The invading alien force was driven off, but at a high cost. Nearly a hundred
thousand Republic officers were dead, the aliens defeated and the Battlestar's
engines and hyperdrives were damaged beyond repair and in a decaying orbit
of the only gas giant in the Pulug system. Several attempts were made to tow
the Battlestar into a stable orbit for later salvage but the remaining vessels
of the task force didn't have the power to counteract the gravitation pull of
a gas giant. The Battlestar was lost and the Republic chose never again to
invest in the construction of any other "super" vessels.
