Wunyaka Vonai (Ark)

Wunyaka Vonai wūnīăkă vō-năě Great Container of People are the massive starships that the Poku'vonai used during the Norka (The Exodus) to transfer their culture and people to the Kikyo Sector where they became the Poku Saeruo Degonjo.

About the Wunyaka Vonai

The Wunyaka Vonai is the oldest ship design in the clan. They are massive ships built for a single purpose to carry as many people, and as much of their culture as possible. The ships are over 800 years, but have been kept fully functional.

Wunyaka Vonai


The clan had been drawn into a desperate battle for survival due to its alliances. The Tanoi (Council) was moved by Kotoz Mui, when it became clear that their survival as a people was in jeopardy. A Kotoz Mui's direction construction on the Arks began in CY -49, meanwhile their fleets valiantly fought against the enemy to buy time for what was to be called the Norka (The Exodus). All of the ship building capacity at Otâgolisoy (Birth world) was put to the task. Originally there were to be eighteen arks constructed, but the number was lowered to fourteen. The ships took eighteen months to complete, and three months to load. The Arks were built to carry and to give the ships the best capability to hide from enemy forces.

In CY -50 the Norka (The Exodus) launched and the Arks carrying the hopes of the Poku'vonai left for unknown space. This would be the last time any of the Arks were in orbit or on the surface of a world.

Of the fourteen constructed only twelve made it the entire length of the Norka (The Exodus), and came to rest in the Degonjo Saeruo (Hidden Sun System).

In YE 35 the Mui (Clan Leader) gave the order to prepare three of the arks for launch as part of the colonization effort that was part of the Otâgo'iâmai (New Worlds)


The Ark is not typical of clan ships, it does not have the traditional coloring because it was designed with being not seen in mind. It is a boxy design, and has clusters of plasma drives on the aft. There are eight landing craft mounted on the top, and eight loading doors on the bottom levels.

Inside the Ark

The Ark was built for a specific purpose. Given that they had no idea how long their journey was the ship was designed with function more than aesthetic. The ship is divided into three sections. Crew and Support, Storage and Colonist.

Crew and Support

This section uses standard starship compartments that have been updated over the years.


The arks feature cavernous storage areas filled with the supplies needed to begin colonization. Each of which was filled with hundreds of HS-EC4-1a Wunyaka Tinsae (Starship Container-Greater)


This section is dedicated to the needs of the colonist. Since the clan had no idea how long personnel would be confined to this section it has all the amenities.

  • Living quarters for 25,000 cabins rated capacity of 100,000
