    BaseSnowFlight-2.jpg?t=1292319619 Camelot

    The Eridanus Rebels created a secret base on Tribute, a UNSC Inner Colony world in the Epsilon Eridani System.

    This base was designed to first create a new starship and then the base would be used to deploy those ships in the Insurrection.

    The first phase was nearly completed, when Operation Trebuchet served to isolate the base and the inhabitants. With the exception of the core scientific crew and select engineers, the personnel left the base to join the rebels massing at a secret base in the asteroid belt to continue the fight.

    The discovery of an experimental ship crashed in the vicinity of Hiatus Outpost provided the location of this base.

    It is now under the control of the Free Traders.

    The base is under ground with the only surface features appearing to be a simply, abandoned outpost on the edge of a frozen lake. The base has four levels. The top underground level comprises fifteen hangers. The exterior hanger door is carefully camouflaged such that it appears nothing more than a up thrust pressure ridge compromising a much larger plateau surface feature.

    The interior hanger door opens up into both a connecting tunnel as well as support facilities allocated to each hanger. These support facilities are as a galley/mess area, surgical and infirmary suites, crew barracks and officer quarters/offices.

    The second underground level comprises maintenance shops of various sorts as well as assorted labs and specialized rooms. The third underground level is warehouse and weapons storage, including nuclear storage. The fourth underground level is base maintenance and support areas such as power plants, water and air purification areas et cetera.

    CHARACTER SHEET


    IMAGE: Hanger15-a.jpg

    NAME: Excalibur 15

    TYPE OF SHIP: Hyperdimensional Craft

    SPECIFICATIONS:

    Power Plant is an artificial singularity drive.

    ARMAMENT: None

    CREW: A gestalt mind composed of scientists and engineers who were part of the Insurrectionist Movement operating in the Epsilon Eridani System. Cut off and isolated by UNSC forces, the scientists and engineers completed the prototype and choose to transfer their minds into Forerunner Plates which were hooked up into the systems of the ship and thus became the ship's mind/intelligence.

    TheLady-1.jpg?t=1291590692 The Lady
    serves as the focal intelligence of the gestalt mind.

    NUMBER OF HANGER BAYS: None

    OTHER: The craft utilizes a gravitational drive for atmospheric operation and utilizes its hyperdimensional drive system to open up a time/space portal to cross larger distances. The ship can transit through solid objects but the more massive the object, the probability of a critical failure increases. If a planetary mass is between the two points of transit, the probability of failure is above fifty percent.

    With the gravitational drive activated, the ship 'disappears' from standard scanning devices and can be visually sighted only as a sort of shimmer as light is bent around the gravitational field. This field also serves as a perimeter barrier to prevent individuals from coming into proximate contact with the craft.

    Special Note: Excalibur 14 exists and was recovered from its crash site. It is similar in design and specifications but it lacks a gestalt mind to operate the systems. Lacking a gestalt mind, Cumulative/Cascading Micro-Instability Syndrome makes piloting the craft impossible over extended distances and it is completely impossible to engage the hyperdimensional drive system.
