The Ismâo'a design is the latest class of scout ship used by the Poku Saeruo Degonjo. All of the older scout ships were either upgraded to the Ismâo'a-class or scrapped and recycled. The primary mission of these vessels is to locate and identify resources for the clan. Their secondary mission is exploration/recon. The interior is divided between crew needs and science labs.
Ismâo'a pronounced ēsmāō-ă
The Ismâo'a is based on a rounded rectangle making it a compact sleek design. The hull is painted in the standard yellow-green scheme. Four Tinvymai Tyokame (Plasma Drives) that provide propulsion for STL travel are seen on the winglets. Bay doors can be seen on the rear for support craft. The hull is standard Poku Saeruo Degonjo colored and features the Poku Afirmu (Clan Crest) on top. There are six Sumanâ-a Rotyka (Fusion Cannon) mounted on the ship. There is a sensor module mounted ventrally and dorsally, and there are four landing gear visible on the bottom.
The Ismâo'a traces its design concept history back to 26 CY and the start of construction on the Sotâka Ruomâqi (World Station). Those ships were designed to explore star systems and search for resources that the Poku Saeruo Degonjo required. The ships had sensors and equipment for gathering samples and evaluating them.
The Ismâo'a expanded the role of the ship to include that of science vessel, at the sacrifice of carrying capacity. One way this was done was with the inclusion of the Surveyor. Ismâo'a was designed to be able to work alone or in small groups. This new paradigm makes the ship idea for the clan.
The Ismâo'a is an agile vessel.
Service Lifespan: Estimated 20 years of constant use, possibly longer with refits.
See Damage Rating (Version 3) for an explanation of the damage system.
The Ismâo'a has two Niu'te Ruo'sa (Airlock)s on the port side, one on each deck. An EVA locker is contained in each.
The Ismâo'a features a Jyaon Ruo'sa Sa (Small Bridge) for control of the ship, located on the upper deck.
The has a standard Nyora'a Ruo'sa (Engineering) that spans both decks of the ship. It is next to the vehicle area.
The Ismâo'a has its Damira Ruo'sa (Environmental Room) room on the lower deck near the lower engineering.
The Ismâo'a has a Wunyli Gianaka (Fuel Storage) room. The tanks hold enough fuel to resupply the reactors four times. This was deemed sufficient for a non-warship. It is located on the lower deck next to engineering.
The Ismâo'a has four rooms that house the equipment for deploying and retracting the landing gear. These are located on the lower deck.
The Ismâo'a has three labs located on the lower deck. Each has the ability to be isolated from the ship's primary Damira Ruo'sa (Environmental Room). This isolation is used anytime a lab is working new samples to avoid contamination.
The Ismâo'a has a standard Damira Ruo'sa (Environmental Room) located on the lower deck.
The Ismâo'a has a small Wapoin Rou'sa (Medical Room). It is located on the lower deck near the laboratories.
There are a number of Lekaokâur (Crawl way) used by the crew for maintenance.
The Ismâo'a has a small Siama Ruo'sa (Divine Room) for use by the crew. It located on the upper deck on the port side. This small room has no door.
The Ismâo'a features a Anoka Ruo'sa (Shield Room) located on the starboard side of the upper deck.
The Ismâo'a features a Kya Norjopa Ruo'sa (Water Processing Room) located on the lower deck.
The Ismâo'a has a dining area located in the bow of the upper deck. It is large enough to feed the entire ship compliment together. Adjacent to the dining hall is the galley where food is prepared.
The Giana Ruo'sa (Galley) is where meals are prepared.
Located in the aft of the Ismâo'a is the two deck tall area for storing and maintaining small craft and ground vehicles. Dimensions: 12m x 12m x 5m
The Ismâo'a has a one meter hull that is constructed on a Mâqirây (Bound Metal) frame, covered in Saemâqi (Star Metal) plating. On top of the hull is a layer of Qotim Anoka'ano Anomu'te (Ablative Armor Plating).
Unlike the warships of the Hidden Sun Clan, the Ismâo'a uses a Jodau Yoqajo (Integrated Brain) for its primary computer system. Many sub-systems and stations use Iginâ Jodau'ta Fiqorka (Neuron Processor Module) for additional computational power.
The Ismâo'a is equipped with the standard Ta'te Goly Norjopa (Far Talking Systems).
The Ismâo'a has the complete set of Tinsae Mâbor'a (Starship Sensors).
The Ismâo'a is also equipped with a ground penetrating radar that can be used to image through rock, soil, ice, fresh water. It can detect objects, changes in material, and voids and cracks. Range is 10 kilometer. Located in Ventral Array only.
The Ismâo'a has the following defensive systems.
The Ismâo'a is equipped with four internally mounted Ikâ'te Bapa (Landing Foot). These are used when the ship lands on a planet or in a ship bay for loading.
The Ismâo'a is armed primarily for defensive purposes.
