The Syzygy-class, newest of corvettes in service to the Threshold‘s armed forces, is a considerably hefty ship for its size, and slower than some in service, but with its stout stature and large engines it is yet quite maneuverable and suited for combat. Often employed in pirate-infested regions, it is normally the most powerful ship in the region, occasionally fighting off multiple pirate skiffs at time.

While its guns are relatively light for a vessel its size, it finds some of its greatest power in its ample Electronics Warfare and Sensory suite, making it an excellent scout and giving it an information-edge over its typical quarry.

DESIGN


The Syzygy was largely built to house the electronic warfare system found on the larger Lucid-class Frigate. The intended purpose was to make a ship similar to the successful Destiny-class Cutter, combining both the frigate’s electronic warfare capabilities and the cutter’s dogfighting-skill. The result of these was the Syzygy, giving the ship its name, meaning “three celestial bodies in alignment.”

The corvette is not considered to be suitable for full-scale war, as it would be easily cut down by enemy cruisers and larger vessels, though it does carry a considerable enough missile armament to be useful in a smaller combat situation.
