ADVANCED SYSTEMS

Strengths:

 

+BASTION OF IMPERIAL LAW: The Square Hammer is very much a mobile fortress, with powerful shields and thick armor. It would take a considerable degree of external firepower to destroy the ship, at least from the outside.

 

+UNENDING PURSUIT:  While the Square Hammer's factories primarily exist for producing the Penal Legionnaires, it also has the capacity to produce SI-TIE/D Automated Droid Starfighters and Shadow Droid Fighters.

 

Weaknesses:

 

-DEMILITARIZED POLICE: The Square Hammer's armament is remarkably weak for a ship of its size, sacrificing guns for armor and hangar space. The end result is a vessel about as well-armed as the average Star Destroyer rather than a proper Star Dreadnought, relying heavily on its escort for defense.

 

-TOO MANY DONUTS: The Square Hammer is slow and unwieldy, and moving it in any meaningful capacity (especially in combat) requires shutting down a good deal of the production facilities.

 

 

Description: The Square Hammer is the awkward fusion of an Ascendancy-class dungeon ship and a Leviathan-class Automated Factory, combined together in the frame of a Dreadnought. It is the only current means of production for Hybrid Droid Processors, making it the core of Project Clemency. The impressive dungeon feeds into the factory, and prisoners are set to undergo pardoning as soon as room is available. In addition to producing cyborgs, the ship can also produce SI-TIE/D Automated Droid Starfighters and Shadow Droid Fighters. When these are combined with the ship's naturally powerful defenses and a relatively formidable defensive escort, the ship becomes virtually indestructible, a slow but immovable object on the battlefield. As long as prisoners and raw materials are fed into the ship, the Square Hammer can lay siege to entire planets on its own.

 

This is all by design, of course. The ultimate, super-long-term goal is for the Square Hammer-class to be mass produced, each ship being the core of a small strike force that would assume total control over Imperial law enforcement. A single task force could crush any rebellion, with the resulting prisoners being used to recoup any losses that occurred in the process. While this vision is still a long ways from reality, the staff of Project Clemency are working consistently to develop ways of bridging the gap, as well as looking beyond that, to an even greater goal: a self-replicating, self-expanding army, one that could make the entire Galaxy tremble...

Amseth Typho, this really looks like it's blurring the distinction betweena large "civilian" ship and a combat-oriented Super Star Destroyer, especially with the large amount of fighters it carries.

 

I really think this needs to be made less combat capable to not have it count as a SSD.

 

Other alternatives to think aboutwould be to change this into a space station, or turn it into a full-fledged SSD with the appropriate 3 dominion threads.

I believe that it does qualify as a full-fledged SSD, and I have linked the third dominion thread as per the recommendation ofDarth Carnifex. My apologies if it was unclear in the initial application.

No worries. If you'll actually list all three of that month's dominions under the "Restricted Missions" field please.
