Basic Description

Description of the Ship:

Pushed into development by Her Majesty the Queen Janis Rosebourg, the Janis Class cruiser class was developed as a means of increasing morale for the fleet. Demoralized by continuous budget cuts and a perceived lack of development of new and innovative starship classes, the Queen felt that the development of a cruiser would reverse the negative effects of the extended economic depression.

Developed by Captain Ternaki as a vessel capable of coordinating command functions at a local area, thus freeing up the capital ships for more important duties, the Janis class has since seen most of its actions amongst O.I.P. peacekeeping forces.

Its future in the Rosebourg fleet is uncertain, though there are proponents suggesting the class be sent in the front lines.

Internal Room Layout

Compartments: 2, 3, 4 - Command, Combat, and Intelligence Center

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 Janis. 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.

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 manoeuvred; 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.

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 Clarel 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 and a separate third door that leads to the small Captain's Office.

The C.C.I. is dominated by gray metallic colours and is usually dimly lit by a dark blue colour.
