Visiting the Dauntless

March 4, 2012

Reporters of the Galactic News boarded the Dauntless, an ancient Imperial Star Destroyer.

The Dauntless

The Dauntless, an Imperial class II Star Destroyer dating from the former Galactic Empire, continues her way in the Galaxy. Refusing to endorse the war crimes of the Empire, the original crew split apart. The ship is now lead by one of their descendants, the admiral Kestal. The crew is now limited to few thousand of people, living in the ship with few other residents.

The ship herself is still operational and regularly maintained. She is still a fighting force to be reckoned with even if she has not taken part in any combat since a while. The Dauntless prefers to not affiliate to any existing governments or ruling bodies and does not search quarrel either. She periodically stops, orbiting over systems to resupply and trade surplus.

Civilians also also have quarters on the ship, using its facilities, even hotels, shops and restaurants. Security measures are taken however to prevent the ship is taken over and she keeps her status of an Imperial Ship. Maybe one day they will realign to a new Empire, but they are currently remaining independent.

      ((It’s not yet open and it’s on one single sim, using huge prims. I’ll ask to the admiral if he has an opening schedule. The hull is build and the corridors were fine. Most rooms were empty, however. I’m not sure how it’ll be possible to fill them, the ship has dozens of floors…))

    ((oh, another fleet based sim, good to see them popping up once again, If the admiral is so inclined perhaps he can drop me and IM, space battles would be something cool to start seeing once again in SWRP))

    (( 1 sim? then how is it scaled to be 1:1? a sim is 256m square wide))

        I am but then it isnt on scale anymore is it?

      ((The centres of the objects have to be in a 256x256m square, but the edges can stick out. The ship is so large I wasn’t able to take a full picture with 1024m draw distance, even if all the details can be seen independently. It’s on on a homestead (with limited prim quota), but they had about 1/3 of free prims when we visited))
