Excalibur Class Heavy Battlecarrier

Black Fleet Excalibur Class Carrier Front view

Excalibur: (HBCF) Excalibur is brave to a fault and leads with extreme authority. He will not order a fellow ship or crew member into a situation he is not willing to undergo himself. Excalibur is one of the strongest of the Fleet ships and the Flag Ship. Excalibur has added communications capabilities to best deploy the fleet.  In turn the other ships and crews draw strength from his rock hard steadfastness.

Like Excalibur, she has added communications capabilities to act as a flagship to best deploy the fleet.

Orion: (HBC) The warrior to the last. He is always the first to volunteer for a mission, most times ahead of his aggressive captain. He holds no fear of destruction. He has added armor enhancements and guns to be able to stay in the heat and fray of battle longer to complete the mission.

Taurus: (HBC) Stubborn, bullheaded, and a bit of a loner, but he will not override orders. Taurus has a good heart, but is very hard and gruff. He is sometimes overwhelmed with the emotions of the crew and has to detach. Even though he will detach at times, this does not mean he does not care.

Pegasus: (HBC) He is the most graceful of the heavy Battlecarriers. He aspires to be a fighter craft. He has made specific modification to his hull and structure in the way of increased inertial dampeners and enhanced heavy structural support. This is all in an effort be able to make maneuvers and evasive that would kill the crew without the modifications.

Shangri-La: (HBC) She is the only one of the ships that can be belligerent but will still follow whatever orders are given. She will take excessive risks in battle and always fly and fight on the edge of losing control. She knows where her crew stands on orders and will not willingly harm them to always come through in a crisis.

Sagittarius: (HBC) Like Argo, he is an explorer at heart and would enjoy frolicking in the outer atmosphere of a hydrogen rich planet rather than fire off a gun or fighter in anger. He is a by-the-book follower of orders to the end, and would fight to the last.

Allegia: (HBC) is cold and calculating. She has bulged out her energy collectors to be more efficient with energy absorption while traveling forward, giving her a slightly wider silhouette, but better conversion for the main generators. While Phoenix watches over the destroyers, Allegia shows her warmth by acting as mother to the battlecruisers. She watches over and tends to them.

Andromeda: (HBC) is another explorer at heart. To further her love of learning and exploration, Andromeda has enhanced her sensors to better explore what is out there thus giving her better resolution, an improvement that the other ships of the fleet will upgrade to once the enhancements prove to be effective. Andromeda has an acute attention to detail and despite her great size she is sharp short. The sensor enhancements have given her an increased sense of when danger is coming. This sense of danger along with the increased sensor range makes her the early warning center for the fleet.
