Drekkar Class Battle Cruiser

Originating in space from the Unknown Regions, only one Drekkar Class Battle Cruiser is known to exist in the galaxy, the Dugan’s Hand. The Information about this alien below is based on an analysis of the structure and data available regarding the Dugan’s Hand.

Close analysis indicates that keel of the Dugan’s Hand was likely laid down around 1200 BBY and has been extensively modified since then. A paper-based log book translated from the Tof language by droid C4-BLE outlines a heavy refit in approximately 700 BBY that added the port and starboard bays along the spine. Further analysis indicates that the third heavy refit added the deep space fuel skimming and refining system (outermost port and starboard wings) in 550 BBY. Additionally, the starboard landing bay was modified to accommodate three Tof expeditionary starship and the port landing bay was reconfigured to support a squadron of Tof starfighters. Armor, and systems refits occurred regularly throughout the ship’s lifetime until 500 BBY when written logs indicate the ship left the Firefist galaxy with its final reconfiguration to support a multi-generational deep space exploration and raiding mission.

All databanks within the ship have been scrambled, so engineering diagrams, astrogation data, etc. are unusable. Because of the ship’s age, ongoing modifications, and foreign designs, repairs and alterations require additional effort; add b to any alterations, repairs or maintenance that require a Computers or Mechanics check). Replacing a major system is challenging, so the difficulty increases and changes one difficulty die to c.

It is believed that Drekkar Class Battle Cruisers were used for deep space exploration and raiding missions outside of the Firefist galaxy.

A Drekkar Class Battle Cruiser is thought to have a crew of Tof Raiders and Tof Ashla and a large compliment of droids. Little is known about the Raiders or Ashla other than the equipment they carried whereas much is known about the droids:

Emergency Systems120 escape pod tubes for Tof deep space pods (expended)
Hyperdrive (Primary)3 -- Because of alien technology, repairs suffer b to Computers and Mechanics checks.
Hyperdrive (Backup)16
Landing/Hanger Bay2 landing bays (Bay 4 Port, Bay 4 Starboard), 50m tall, 50m wide, 225m long. Fore blast door access with landing bay shield and three-point guidance for docking (fore + two interior tractor beams). Updated docking ports along the each side and the ventral spine.
Landing GearMulti-surface hard pad landing struts with surface density sensors.
NavicomputerTof ancient, deep space navicomputer. All legacy data corrupted and unusable. Because of alien technology, repairs suffer b to Computers and Mechanics checks.
SensorsAutomated targeting and fire control when droid automation is active, long-range active and passive sensors. Cloaking Device (maneuver to active, renders ship invisible to sight and sensors; ship cannot attack while cloaked; effect ends if the ship suffers trauma or strain; after de-cloaking, the device cannot be reengaged for 1 round, when initiating cloak all sensors of any ship within short range are jammed for 1 round). Because of alien technology, repairs suffer b to Computers and Mechanics checks.
Shield EmittersTof Fore, port, starboard, and aft with cloaking modifications. Because of alien technology, repairs suffer b to Computers and Mechanics checks. Dorsal shield emitter fin also service as a fuel skimming intake.
Sublight Engines9 Tof ion sublight engines. Because of alien technology, repairs suffer b to Computers and Mechanics checks.
