Athena Class Light Battlestar is a expertimental battlestar construction in secret by Admiral Arthur Wallace's faction.
HistoryEditThe smaller battlestar ever construction, at only 512 meters. It small size, it design for several reasons include it primary purpose to serviced as the test bed for the plasma base shield and weapons under development at Camelot. It also equipped with a new FTL drive and a reactor.
Everything on the Athena is tight. It does carries 80 Vipers and 20 Raptors but the came as a cost, The Athena has horrible endurance forcing it either 1: to stay close to a base/planet or 2: greatly depend on support ship for re-supply. With reduce room on the Athena everything is reduce include crew quarters, head, wardroom, sickbay, etc.
After the Athena's shakedown cruise, the Athena went in for minor refit, which added 4 Raptors landind pads, and because of this it required an enlarged arms structure. This was done to make more room for the Vipers. Now all Raptors will be house in Raptor bay instead of the normal hanger bay, which now will house only the Vipers, and been reclassify as Viper bay.All future Athena, will be construction like this.
