A little while back, I was conversing with
about The Arion's (since her OC Ultraviotet is half Arion). So to spare you the whole conversation, here's a little piece pertaining to this ship and the creation of a true Imperial Arion Starfleet:
After Deposing the previous Emperor and establishing an Imperial Dynasty, Talzor-Van became known as "The Father of the Modern Imperial Fleet". Before, The members of the military high command horded tech as a means of keeping an edge over other Commanders. However, Emperor Van decreed all tech must be surrendered for the creation of a cutting edge fleet. At first, among traditionalists, the young Emperor didn't make any allies but they soon changed their minds once they saw this beauty as an example of things to come.
The Arion Imperial Dreadnought (Captial Ship)
-about 1.75 Kilometers long. Second largest ship in the fleet
-Heavy armored Hull (Strong enough to be used as a battering ram to punch through blockades)
-Two large primary gun batteries for ship-to-ship combat. Six planetary bombardment batteries (three port side, three starboard side)
-Acts as drop ship for ground troops (Imperial Marines, engineers, ect)
-Can be mobile command center for smaller battle groups.
