Galahad-Class Monitor

design by Lewis Roberts

The Galahad-Class Monitor is produced by Bourgund Shipyards on Oriflamme. It is the largest non-relic ship in the Oriflamme Navy. No other worlds of the RC has purchased a Galahad, and unlike other ships, the Technarchs don't want to export the Galahad. It is intended to protect vital areas of the Oriflamme system mainly the homeworld, and the gas giants. One thing of note about the Galahad, is that the range of its PAW far outstrips its feeble sensors; it usually operates with a vast sensor net made up of drones, and planet based sensors.

The Galahad-Class is a very compact design, there is a minimal amount of space for the crew. The crew sleeps in the traditional hammock of the Oriflamme navy. This saves space, and also allows the crew to each have an individual bed, rather than sharing an actual mattress in the normal hotbunking scheme. The crew often sets up recreation facilities, in the cargo bay, between rows of cargo pallets. Zeeball is a popular activity.

The ship is streamlined, but the fusion rockets prevent it from landing on an inhabited planet. The radioactive wasted produced by the rockets would do irrereable harm to the biosphere. The Galahad is built in orbit and the only time it enters a planetary astmosphere is to refuel in a gas giant's atmosphere. None of Oriflamme's gas giants have an native life forms, so the radioactivity does little harm.
