History

The Zero Battleship was actually intended more as an exercise in what could be built then something intended for general use. However one government decided being the only one with a Battleship would be an impressive feat, so they spent the resources to see the zero made. Ironically by the time they finished it the formation of the SA was effectively complete and the Zero would join the SAN rather than the government that had it built.

The Zero has a wide variety of weapons: 6 Heavy Railguns, 8 Dual-barrel Artillery Railguns, 24 Light Railguns, 16 Heavy Laser systems, 2 Medium Laser Systems, 8 Missile Bays (6 tubes), and 6 Mine Launchers. It was designed to saturate an area with fire to increase it’s chance to hit. They also are designed to carry a high number of shuttles and even a few fighters for support using their hangar bays on each side of the ship.

It has an internal spin gravity ring much like the earlier Ranger Frigate allowing spin gravity without the danger of an external ring. It also has two large hangar bays which were designed with shuttles in mind. It has 30 VASIMR drive systems to provide it with thrust and an FTL drive system to move at interstellar distances.
