Athena Class Light Battlestar is a expertimental battlestar construction in secret by Admiral Arthur Wallace's faction.
HistoryEditThe Athena Class was the smallest battlestar ever constructed, at only 512 meters. The designs primary purpose was to be used as the test bed for the plasma base shield and weapons under development at Camelot. It was also equipped with a new FTL drive and reactor.
Everything on Athena is tight. She carries 80 Vipers and 20 Raptors but this comes as a cost. Athena has horrible endurance forcing it to either stay close to a base/planet or depend on support ships for frequent re-supply. With reduced internal volume, everything is reduced including crew quarters, head, wardroom, sickbay, etc.
After Athena's shakedown cruise, she went in for minor refit, adding 4 Raptor landing pads creating more volume in the main hanger bay. All Raptors are now housed in a dedicated Raptor bay instead of the normal hanger bay which is now reclassified as the Viper bay.All future Athena Class vessels, will be constructed to this standard.
