Basic Description

Description of the Ship:

The Mary-Rosebourg was conceived to be the first in a long line of warships that would significantly increase the Rosebourg Monarchy's capital ships capabilities.

Designed to serve in a variety of important roles, the Mary-Rosebourg Class Starship were heralded to become the answer-to-all problems that could arise from the defense of the Rosebourg Monarchy.

Although not particularly large, in comparison to other capital ships listed as heavy battleships, the Mary-Rosebourg Class is a fierce fighter, equipped with some of the most powerful guns.

Construction Details

Construction Site(s): Mariposa Fleet Yards, Trix III: Trix Star System
First Commission: 447.08.24 (24th August, 2447)
History of the Class:

Since the Mary-Rosebourg sailed out, the Rosebourg Monarchy squeezed over a period of 20 years, some key resources in order to ensure the construction of this expansive ship-of-the-line.

The result, however, is that the Rosebourg Monarchy possesses some of the best starships for continued warfare. With the adaptability of these vessels, the Rosebourgs can call upon these ships to punch through enemy lines and installations, to carry troops to planetary fronts, and coordinate military operations for the Monarchy.

The vessel has since become a legend within the Rosebourg space flotilla's crews.

Internal Room Layout

Compartments: 5, 6, 7 - Support Crafts Bay

The Mary-Rosebourg support craft bays are some of the largest ever built, next to fightercraft carriers.

The support craft bays are single-story buildings, which are able to house independently 11 large support crafts.

Although they take a lot of space, the support craft bays were placed aboard the Mary-Rosebourg class starships in order to allow them to carry and transport all of the support crafts that would be needed by their large marine crews.

The support craft bays are fairly basic designs; support craft bays are housed on the North and South sides of each of the support craft bays.

There is a central East to West exit port that propels the support crafts at their maximum rated speeds before they exit the vessel (giving them the speed they need to take off and dodge the enemy should they be doing a mission under fire).

There is a special area where support craft deck officers can go the moment the support craft bay becomes an airtight compartment.

Internal Room Layout

Compartments: 8, 9 - Tactical Combat Analysis Center (TCAC) & Intelligence Systems Bay (Raven's Roost)

For the first time in Rosebourg military designs, for the only time since, the Rosebourg Monarchy chose that the TCAC and Raven's Roost modules be merged together to form a special two-deck module designed to serve as the heart of the Mary-Rosebourg's combat operations center.

On the top level of this two-deck facility is the Tactical Command Analysis Center. From the TCAC, the Captain can observe a battle and also plan out strategic orders.

The Tactical Combat Analysis Center is a large rectangular room, overpowered by a central circular console where the tactical officers and the Captain can make tactical decisions concerning the safety of the ship.

Each wall contains readouts listing not only ships available for combat, but also analysis readouts with suggested tactics from the computer.

The TCAC is equipped with a number of consoles, which are able to detect and critique the battle status of the ship, as well as the general Tactical conditions of the sectors around the ship.

The bridge officers can also reprogram these consoles for active bridge control use thereby serving as an equally able emergency bridge.

A massive stairway links the Tactical Combat Analysis Center to the Intelligence Systems Bay, where the powerful intelligence-gathering suite complements the TCAC. Directly down the stair, is Raven's Roost where the entire intelligence gathering duties of the ship are taken care of.

Raven's Roost is a semi-circular room that was designed to serve as an add-on to the TCAC. The semi-circle is split in half by a double-door, which serves as an alternate entry route.

On the right of this semi-circle are the consoles for ELINT (Electronic Intelligence), while on the left of the semi-circle are the consoles for SIGINT (Signal Intelligence) divisions of intelligence.

Both rooms have an overpowering feel of metal and glass that is characteristic of the internals of Rosebourg flag vessels.

Internal Room Layout

Compartments: 12 - Battle Bridge

Deep inside the ship is the starship's battle bridge, protected by section after section of hull; the battle bridge serves as the central coordination for all activity within the starship.

The bridge is a circular design that is designed to impress upon entry. In the back of the room are massive displays that provide Damage Control as well as general engineering information in the event of the battle.

In the center of the room are two-semi circular groups of consoles and displays that are split in the center by the chairs of the Commanding Officer, the Executive Officer, and the Second Officer. The consoles located behind the Commanding Officer are usually earmarked for Medical, Marine, and support craft operations, while the consoles in front are earmarked for Operations, Navigations, and Tactical purposes.

The Commanding Officer sits in the center of the room, with his Executive Officer to the right, and his Second Officer to his left.

On the wall next to the Second Officer, there is a massive tactical display updated regularly by Raven's Roost.

On the wall next to the Executive Officer stands the plaque commemorating the offerings made to the Quadaz to bless the ship.

In front of the Operations, Navigations, and Tactical officers stands a massive visual display that can be used for communications, visual identification, and other coordinating purposes.

Internal Room Layout

Compartments: 18 - Main Medical Bay

The Mary-Rosebourg's main Medical Bays are designed to follow the basic general design of all the main layout components of the Mary-Rosebourg class battleships.

The Main Medical Bay, which is composed of the latest in medical technology, is designed to provide medical attention to a portion of the crew aboard the Mary-Rosebourg that they are based on.

Controlled by a very specialized medical crew, the Mary-Rosebourg's Medical Bay designs follow the rest of the ship in resemblance, but the usage is quite different.

A center circle that defines a very extensive surgical unit characterizes Medical Bay, which resembles Main Engineering's warp core locale.

Like Main Engineering, the surgical area surrounded all around by a glass wall, which is 4 meters away from the center of the circle.

Behind the glass wall stand medical bio beds, which are evenly spaced and go all around Medical Bay. These Biobeds are standard examination bio beds and should not be used for surgery except under extreme circumstances in which the Mary-Rosebourg's sickbay are overworked with patients.

There are two doors on either side of the circular Medical Bay; one leads to the Chief Medical Officer's and Chief Surgeon's while the other leads to the exit.

All in all, Medical Bay has 98 regular bio beds, one single main surgical unit and in Medical Laboratory 1, one cryogenic facilities to keep serious patients in stasis until a medical ship can be located.

Internal Room Layout

Compartments: 34 - Marine Briefing and Debriefing Rooms

Designed as a Marines mission operations Center, the Marines Debriefing Room is a characteristic which as rarely been added but has been incorporated into the design of the Mary-Rosbourg Class battleships.

The Marines Debriefing Room, which is designed for use by the Marines complement of the Mary-Rosebourg for mission briefings and debriefings, is intended for use as a highly active room.

Also used to analyze a Marines' previous mission such as protocol review or success rates check the main room becomes a major requirement for Marines Operations.

The Main Debriefing Room, which offers a theater style central room capable of seating 100 people inside a room that has 50 chairs set in rows of 5 to one row. This 50/50 chairs combination is split in the middle by a walkway in which the Marines head can use as an effective audience tool.

In an isolated area of the Marines Debriefing Room, a small room, which is used by the Mary-Rosebourg's home division, serves as the centerpiece of luxury granted to the Marines. This rather small room holds some experimental equipment to be used by the Marines Staff, which also help to characterize it.

An oval shaped table, which is able to seat 20 people, is placed in the center of the room; the design is based on the ideals of the Knights of the Round Table.

The aesthetics were chosen so as to allow all Marines of the Mary-Rosebourg's home division to be able to see each other to provide peer-support during hard combat missions. The rooms' chairs are leather with high backs, characterized by a rumoured great comfort from the Second Officer.

Above the table in the ceiling is a hologram projector and when analyzing a Marines' mission, it can be used to program screen stills of objectives, and a visual playback of how a unit performed during debriefing. The hologram projector is also used during briefing assignments to show strategic logistics prior to a mission.

Concluding, on the forward wall is a large screen, basically for use as a communications and/or additional computer display.

Internal Room Layout

Compartments: 35 - Central Engineering

The Mary-Rosebourg class starships are direct descendants of the standard Rosebourgian attitude towards the construction of engineering sections.

Engineering is spread over 7 decks, due to the largeness of 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 a large glowing crystal that is the Mary-Rosebourg's class most powerful power generator.

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.
