Tactical Overview

Combat Overview

Endeavour’s mission is one of exploration and discovery. In an unknown and distant environment however, the vessel must be able to defend itself if needed. There are already known threats to the ISDC’s mission from other terrestrial deep space programs and potentially other alien species. Even under the best circumstances, first contact in some completely new language risks misunderstandings that might escalate to conflict.

In the vastness of space, the ability to detect and counteract a potential threat before it can inflict harm is vital. This can be achieved with asynchronous tactical capabilities: the ability to track without being detected or to deliver combat payloads while outside the weapons range of the threat.  Ideally, both.

Tactical Operating Environment (TOE)

The Tactical Operating Environment (TOE) is the area of space surrounding the vessel that requires active management, due to possible navigational hazards or tactical threats. The TOE is loosely defined by the range of tactical sensors, which locate and track non-mapped objects.

Maintaining the TOE is the primary task of the vessel’s tactical team. This includes detection and tracking of unmapped objects around the vessel and if necessary developing firing solutions to any object deemed a threat to the vessel’s safety.

Weapons Systems


Torpedo System

The vessel's primary armament is based around a system of railgun-launched self-guided missles referred to as torpedoes. The torpedo system is designed as a multiple-purpose tactical delivery platform.
