History

The Hecate Carrier was built a couple of decades after the Agamemnon by FIC as they hoped to fix some of what were considered that ships biggest issues. Mostly they tried to do what the UEG/SAN had by protecting the habitat rings from battle damage. To do this they minimized the size of the rings and then placed them almost entirely inside the ship by placing armored bands over the sides. The downside to this is much smaller habitat areas for the crew to have gravity in, so only critical or communal areas are in the habitat rings. They also added a set of solar collector panels to the ship to help it’s power consumption as well as aiding it’s heat exchange capabilities, both of which enhance it’s endurance.

It is armed with sixty quad barrel railgun turrets behind retractable armored covers as it’s main weapons. Forty laser turrets in ball mounts provide point defense capability versus missiles and fighters. On top of these it mounts twenty double tube heavy missile launchers. Compared to the earlier Agamemnon the Flight deck of the Hecate is the same size, but the docks within it were re-arranged. It lost some of it’s shuttle capacity and more docks for Razors for a bunch of medium docks giving it a heavier fighter punch.
