For a very long time our topics have centered around the latest cruise ships with their sleek, elegant look, top notch luxury specifications and features that oozed comfort and style. After all, what else would we have talked about in our peacetime review of the starships of the galaxy? The ships in the Commorium fleet proved to be of little interest as long as there was no war brewing on the horizon. Their only purpose was discovering the outskirts of the Federated Republic Empire of Planets. Not anymore! The Xothic are threatening us ladies and gentlemen and a fun cruise to one of the fabled spa planets could quickly turn into trouble. We are all now paying attention to the ships that are fighting hard in this war to keep us safe.
One such vessel is the already famous Commorium Bomber. The Bomber has gained prestige in this war thanks to Lieutenant Tontor Lothnon and his now famous incursion into Xothic space. This vessel was perfect for this mission because of its scanning abilities and its deflector shields.
The Bomber has a sleek, elongated look, giving a nod to the planes of old. The nose of Tontor’s vessel had hidden Nikkion Survey Cameras to aid in their surveillance mission. An interesting fact about these cameras is the first prototype was built from scratch by a mechanic prodigy from one of the Empire’s scrap metal planets. For years now Nikkion’s top of the line cameras have been mounted on all ships that need to serve surveillance and scanning missions.
The Commorium bomber comes fitted with powerful Ricaya Industries Phase One Pulse Cannons. In hyperspace travel the cannons fold down in crevices specially built into the fuselage of the ship. During combat, the cannons unfold and can unleash their power at the first sign of danger. An advantage the bomber has over other assaults ship is the reduced delay of the pulse cannons between recharging. Originally Ricaya Industries did not wish to involve themselves in building weapons for the war effort. After much coaxing from the government, the company agreed to outfit only the Commorium Bomber with their newest pulse cannons. Needless to say, they have delivered a hardy weapon to the fleet. The Ricaya Phase One Pulse Cannon is extremely powerful, because it is based on a 10 Megawatt charged photon accelerator. This accelerator is a series of coils that charged photon radiation travels through, is multiplied and then released to cause massive damage thru a lethal burst of radiation. The Ricaya version can fire multiple bursts over a period of seconds.
The Bomber also carries four laser cannons, two concealed in its nose, and two to the rear of the fuselage. In Tontor’s ship the two front laser cannons were replaced with surveillance cameras as noted above. A pair of launch tubes for proton torpedoes gives the Bomber its greatest punch, allowing it to perform its bombing missions.
There is a time to fight and a time to flee, but the Commorium Bomber can do both with utmost success. Benefiting from impressive velocity, the bomber can in effect take advantage of short microbursts of speed thanks to its Twin Ion Propulsion Huron Engines. In order to use this system, the pulse canons of the ship must be locked down and concealed in the fuselage of the ship. Overall, looking over the specifications of this impressive ship, it is clear why the Commorium Bomber enjoys so much success and why the Xothic will quiver at its sight.
