  • Heavy deflector shield projector


  • Projects a large deflector shield to protect not only the ship projecting it, but any ships behind the Athena-class will be protected. Several redundant projectors serve as back up for the main projectors.
  • Heavily armored to protect itself from enemy fire


  • Low armament makes it ineffective for offensive purposes
  • Requires complement to defend it's rear as the shields are projected in front of the ships



When Zahori fought against the Incursion menace that was plaguing the galaxy, she had learned much from their tactics in the major fleet battle that took place near the conclusion of the war. Most notably, Zahori noticed their use of shield ships to protect their main fleet as they pushed forward. It was effective, for a time, in their mission, but they were no match for the combined might of the galaxy's fleets. Recently, Zahori has noticed something that has been vexing the Imperial Armada for quite some time. Enemy fleets have constantly appeared behind Imperial vessels and striking them from behind and, as many know, Imperial ships have little to no protection to attacks from the rear. This has been an issue for far too long for Zahori to standby and do nothing about. Using the same idea used by the Incursion fleet, Zahori had created the Athena-class Shield Frigate.


This ship is normally positioned at the rear of fleets, ready to defend the fleet when needed. Should enemy ships appear behind a fleet, the Athenas immediately activate their shield generators, creating a massive deflector shield, about 700m by 700m in size, that defends any and all ships behind it. Should enough Athenas be present, they can form an array, interlocking their shield generators, creating a shield large enough and powerful enough to defend almost any fleet in the Imperial Armada, but should one ship be destroyed, the entire array will go down.
