Berleos Class Destroyer
in Vehicles, Crafts, and Starships
Originally, the Clarel Class heavy destroyer and the Berleos Class light destroyer were going to be developed jointly and would operate in wolf packs together. This idea has since been forgotten, with the Berleos Class destroyer's utility as a stealth warship realized early after it was produced.
A tiny vessel by many standards, the Berleos class destroyer has an extremely low sensor profile. To this date, many vessels have a hard time picking up the small vessel on their sensors (especially if the vessel is running in full-stealth mode).
The Berleos class never was as famous or as popular as its larger Clarel class counterpart. Although larger orders for the Berleos were still made by the Rosebourg Fleet, the 1600 models of the Berleos class have since been eclipsed by the Clarel-class fleet, whose numbers are triple that of the Berleos.
Both ships, however, were designed by the same Rear Admiral, whose since become known as the Neo-Father of Rosebourg Stealth. A significant refit of all Berleos models took place through 2487-2497, in which the ships' internal modules were upgraded to smaller version of the Clarel class destroyers' own.

Onboard SystemName: LSP Hull Treatement Model: LSP-HTB Manufacturer: Phantom Hull Designs, Rosebourg Prime
Description of System:The LSP hull treatment is a low-sensor profile hull-treatment that causes the Berleos starship to absorb rather than repel sensor signals. This thus confuses sensors into thinking that there is no ship there. Although the treatment was highly successful in its first decades, sensor designers have begun finding new sensor types to "cancel-out" the effect of the LSP hull treatment

Description of System:Note: Anti-Sensor Detection System only work against starships which are far away, and cause a considerable energy drain on the ship using it.

Internal Room Layout
Aboard Berleos Class Destroyers, the Raven's Roost, TCAC and Battle Bridge modules, which worked independently aboard other battleships, were merged into a single three-deck module. Known as the C.C.I (Command, Combat, and Intelligence) Center, the facilities' three levels are linked with one another with an independent elevator shaft.
On the first level of the CCI is the Raven's Roost, a circular room that is split in the middle by a central corridor, and a central chair. In the chair is the Chief Intelligence Officer whose job is to coordinate the ELINT and SIGINT data that pours through the sensors of the Berleos.
ELINT stations are numerous and are located in front of the chair, while SIGINT stations are located behind the chair.
The elevator shaft connecting the C.C.I. to the rest of the ship is located to the left of the Chief Intelligence Officer's chair, while the shaft connected to the other levels of the C.C.I is located to the right.
Internal Room Layout
On the second level of the CCI is the Battle Bridge, the central command operation for the ship. From the Battle Bridge, the ship can be maneuvered; weapons can be fired, and general ships communication's can be transmitted.
The Battle Bridge operates as unified U-shaped room. Operations, Mission Operations, and Damage Control consoles are located in the center, while the right of the room concentrates on navigations and tactical operations.
A massive view screen that can be made to show visual communications and or video recording from space dominates the left of the room.
The Captain's chair stands behind all of these consoles, and very noticeably, there are no chairs conceived for a second officer or an executive officer to sit in.
Elevator access is located next to the Operations consoles.
Internal Room Layout
The third level of the CCI is the Tactical Combat Analysis Center; a fully circular room that is dominated in the center by a massive circular display that shows a large map of the sector of space the Berleos is currently located in.
Ringing this display, are a variety of consoles that show the capabilities of the ship as well as other combatants involved.
The TCAC compiles all available information from Raven's Roost that concerns possible threats, as well as current allied capabilities in the area, and from this can extrapolate data that expedites the most logical combat decisions for the starship.
There are two doors that lead to the elevator access shafts.
The C.C.I. is dominated by gray metallic colors and is usually dimly lit by a dark blue colour.
Internal Room Layout
- Number of Beds in Main Med-Bay: 15 standard, 0 surgical, 1 Cryogenic Framed
The medical bay on the R.M.R.S. Berleos was designed to be a miniature version of medical bays equipped aboard the bigger battleships. In order to do this, the number of beds was significantly reduced, but on Berleos class starships (unlike the Clarels), the surgical unit was retained.
The result is a medical bay capable of first-aid and stabilizing medical aid, though it is quite incapable of performing highly technical medicine on a large number of patients. The Berleos will thus often call upon the aid of a hospital ship should it get involved in direct combat.
The medical bay is a circular room that has one entrance into the medical bay, and straight across from it three side rooms (a cryogenics room, and doctor's and nurse's offices).
The medical beds are spaced out evenly around the circle; twenty in all are always maintained, ready to provide medical assistance to those aboard the crew who might need it.
These medical beds, however, were not designed for extensive surgery and should only be used as such in the event of a catastrophic event that requires immediate medical attention in order to prevent death.
Internal Room Layout
The Berleos class starships are direct descendants of the standard Rosebourgian attitude towards the construction of engineering sections. However, because of the dual vortex power generators to keep the ship moving, the Central Engineering that is standard aboard all Rosebourg ships has been squeezed in between the two power cores.
In order to maintain the deck strength, much of the glass that was present in the room has been removed and replaced with tritanium.
Engineering is spread over 4 decks, due to the vortex drive, as well as to the lack of real central design to the Engineering modules. Serving as a partial means of coordination amongst all the engineering sub-departments, Central Engineering was created as a central meeting point.
An oval room, Central Engineering is dominated by the Vortex Drive. Consoles that control the coordination, and allocation of engineering resources follow the shape of the circular room, with a door on both sides leading to elevators.
There are two other doors, which lead to access ports where maintenance can be performed on the entire ship.
