Main Colonial Arks

Mike_Hill_Concept_Art_Karakter_Marketing_Illustration.jpg

The Joint Colony Venture Fleet consists of 14 Arks, each of these massive ships are 4 kilometers long end to end, are fueled by an antimatter catalyzed fusion core with a nominal output of 30 gigawatts. These ships are designed to be modular, and were designed to be dismantled overtime to create the beginnings of a colony.
Each ship consists of four main pieces. A Sub-light drive section in the back which houses the flight deck and primary vacuum drive, the fuselage just ahead of that contains the detachable cargo modules and passenger sections, and just ahead of that in the nose of the craft is the Void point core which is what allows the ship to achieve faster than light speeds through space-time warping. The last section of the ship is the backbone, a long sturdy truss that acts as the main support structure and to which everything else is attached.
Each ship incorporates the latest technology. The propulsion system of these ships are the defining feature, with the Void Point Core comprising the heart. Each ship is capable of bending space and
Aboard each ship is a skeleton crew of 100 crew members, a sleeping passenger compliment of 40000, and hangar and support bays for several hundred auxiliary craft.
Underline = Disabled/In need of repair Bold = Achieved Orbit Cross through = Confirmed Destroyed Italicized = Salvageable/Being Salvaged Null = Fate Unknown
JCV Aurora – In high orbit, now low orbit. Missing several sections. Online..(Recovered Derelict) JCV Galileo – Reactor overload after crash into continent. Ruins intact but highly radioactive.
JCV Alexander – Crashed into abyss JCV Prometheus – Crashed into abyss
JCV Lazarus – Crashed into abyss JCV Firesong – Low Orbit achieved.(Crew intact and operational)
JCV Zheng He – Broke up in low orbit (Low orbit debris field, degrading rapidly) JCV Stark – Achieved low orbit
JCV Shiva – Found (Located in the 2nd ring of the planet in mid orbit, Derelict) JCV Amaterasu – Crashed into abyss, low lying myst shelf.
JCV Von Braun – Crash landed on the far continent. JCV Long – Emergency landing on low lying shard in Eastern Abyss
JCV Caliban – In low polar orbit (Operational). JCV Lie Ren – Life support failure, fully evacuated.
