The Apollo class is the successor to the older Razorthorn class. These warships are among the oldest models of warships still in use by the Navy of the Terran Satellite Charter (NTSC). It is a testament to the robustness of their design and the ingenuity of the NTSC itself that despite their age, they remain formidable front-line warships.
The Apollo was originally built as a vessel to help control piracy, using design principles laid down during the long ago Wars of First Contact. They were made to be highly modular, allowing for faster and cheaper swapping of systems as battlefield necessity and changing technology called for. This is a major reason the ships remain as effective as they do after all this time; ships that once knew nothing of energy shielding and the latest mass driver turrets now sport both in abundance. The mass drivers can be substituted with the newer atomic lasers as well, making the Apollo even more devastating in the close range brawling battles it excels at. Coupled with its powerful torpedo launchers and the prow mounted nuclear weapons, the Apollo stands firm as an important lynch-pin for the NTSC.
