Diatium Capacitance Array

13 March 2018 - 03:42 PM


  • Intent: To create a defensive system for use by starfighters and starships that will prove effective against shield-penetrating energy weapons.

  • Restricted Missions: N/A

  • Absorbs the energy of energy weapons, discharging it into the ship's systems and decreasing the strain on the ship's reactor


  • Is effective at absorbing the energy of weaponry, providing defense to ships with conventional deflector shields against shield-penetrating energy weaponry like solar ionization cannons
  • ​Can be used in battle to reduce usage of the ship's main power source, or alternative can be used to augment the ship's shields, engines, or weapons


  • Provides no benefit whatsoever to protection against physical weapons
  • ​Can be overwhelmed with either highly concentrated fire or fire directed on the ship's hull from every angle, potentially overloading and disabling the entire system

The diatium capacitance array was developed by Defiance Consolidated Multipurpose Manufacturing shortly after the Battle of Kashyyyk. The usage of the solar ionization cannons by the defending Silver Jedi forces inflicted significant, though not critical damage to the hull of the Ablution​. After the ship was sent to Defiance's yards for repair and refitting, Vanessa Vantai and a team of DCMM engineers immediately went to work on trying to develop a means to counter weapons like the solar ionization cannon, energy weaponry that could penetrate both particle and energy shields. While equipping the vessel with molecular shields would have solved such an issue, such would have left it vulnerable to weaponry such as hypervelocity guns and mass drivers. Thus the diatium capacitance array was developed to serve as a comparable system.


Vanessa began by studying past creations designed to absorb energy weapons, such as the droid capacitor armor equipped by HK-47 during the Old Sith Wars. Such was applied to a grander scale through combining ultrathin diatium absorption panels with large diatium capacitors impregnated within the exterior of the vessel's hull. When hit by laser, turbolaser, or as intended, solar ionization cannon fire, the energy is absorbed by the outer diatium absorption panel and redirected through thick wiring into the capacitors, where it is quickly dumped into the ship's system, the vessel's reactor decreasing its power output or, in the event overcharging of the shields/weapons/engines is intended to occur, maintaining it. The capacitors, in the event they are overwhelmed, can redirect the power input through the wiring to other capacitors, allowing the entire system to defend against turbolaser strikes.


The system has two issues, aside from it being unable to defend against physical weapons. First, excessively concentrated fire from multiple ships on a specific area can overwhelm the capacitance array beyond its ability to absorb the energy. If this overwhelming continued for more than even a few seconds, the capacitors will pop and the system as a whole will require replacing. The same issue occurs when fire is spread across the entire ship - mass fire has the exact same effect as extremely concentrated fire.


Diatium capacitance arrays are equipped on all DCMM ships built for the Sith Empire since their introduction as a product.

Description: Vanessa Vantai, a Sith Lord within the Sith Empire, had a fascination with superweapons. Whether it was the beam weaponry of the Death Star and the Eclipse​, or the sun-destroying power of the Corsair and the Sun Crusher, Vanessa desired to bring such extensive technological power to the hands of the Sith once again. After having sent Lieutenant Tekkio to the ruins of the Maw Installation in order to acquire a cache of weapon blueprints, Vanessa's examinations of them began to yield fruit. Some were simply impossible to replicate according to their original means of functioning, such as Centerpoint Station and the Sun Crusher. Others, like the Sovereign​ and the Eclipse​, would take far more resources than the Empire would ever have let her utilize.


But one that she was able to replicate to the perfect detail was Trigon One.


The orbital weapons satellite had been developed by a criminal organization known as the Fromm Gang, and the blueprints for it had been sent to the Maw some time after the capture of the Fromm Gang by bounty hunters aligned to Jabba the Hutt. Simple enough to manufacture, and claimed to be capable of destroying a planet, Vanessa commissioned an exact replica of the weapon, Trigon Two​, to be manufactured and tested on the dead world of Nathema. The planet was a void in the Force, after all - its destruction would not be missed. And if the tests went well, perhaps it would be worth mass-producing.


Of course, she knew it wouldn't work.


Studies of the ​Trigon One​ blueprints indicated that in every conceivable way, the weapon was a sham. It had potential as an orbital bombardment platform if equipped with the right weaponry, but it could barely penetrate the shields of a planetary base, let alone destroy a planet at full power as claims about it had been made. It was impossible to equip the small design of the weapons satellite with a weapon powerful enough to destroy a world, let alone a power source capable of powering such a weapon. The test article created a crater on Nathema, but it was capable of destroying buildings - not worlds. Still, the Trigon Two​ design was put into production after the test, with full knowledge that it would one day lose its purpose as a 'superweapon.' A Sith acolyte named Xavier Vi'dreya was put in charge of the program on Vanessa's behalf, told only that the satellites were deliberately being held back from full power.


Trigon Twos are based off the ​Trigon One​ weapons satellite designed by the Fromm Gang. Their main weapon is, as was equipped on the original, a powerful, exceedingly long range beam weapon, which could be maneuvered from an approximate 170 degree arc on the underside of the satellite. The original weapon was replaced by a DCMM-designed SBeam light beam cannon, modified to increase its range to allow for orbital bombardment, but otherwise having the same capabilities. Vanessa as well improved upon the Fromms' work, adding deflector shields, composite beam lasers, and flak guns for anti-fighter and anti-corvette defense. Maneuvering jets were as well installed on the satellite, allowing it to shift position - this allows it to bring its SBeam into play against smaller enemy warships.


On board a Trigon Two​, conditions are spartan. These satellites are intended for limited continuous use and regular resupply if crewed, supplies lasting one week. As a result, there is space for approximately ten people in two cramped bunk bed-filled quarters on board the satellite, though it is more than capable of functioning autonomously without a crew. Trigon Twos​ can be remotely controlled by other Sith Empire ships, fed targeting data from the ship in question and effectively serving as a sort of heavy turret. Trigon Twos​ can be jumped from system to system, but must be towed by tractor beam-equipped ships to their intended location.


The existence of the Trigon Two​ is a well hidden fact within the Sith Empire, even within the Void Irregular Fleet where testing was commenced. More well hidden is the fact that the weapon is not the superweapon it was believed to be, though it is a capable defense platform and orbital bombardment platform in its own right. Upon the discovery by the Sith's enemies that the Trigon Two​ is in fact not the superweapon they initially believe it to be, all information regarding the project will be declassified and the extant examples will likely be disposed of through sales to the Commenor Systems Alliance, given their beam weaponry is sufficiently weak enough to be offered for export.

This One's a Decoy

Xavier Vi'dreya


Nathema Orbit


The dead world of Nathema was truly, utterly dead. There was no life to be found on the world's surface, nor in orbit, as the ritual performed long ago by Vitiate had stripped the very essence of the Force from the world, which made it an effective deathtrap for anyone who dared to go to the planet's surface. This also made it a perfect location for Defiance Consolidated Multipurpose Manufacturing and its SMD project - superweapon miniaturization and decoys. One decoy was currently taking shape - the Trigon Two orbital satellite, and she had enlisted the assistance of a recent convert to the Dark Side to assist her in working on the craft in question.


Hopefully he would arrive soon.

Defiance SMD Project and More

  • Intent: To create a smaller, much more practical device operating along the same principles as the Planet Prison, but on a much smaller, far below superweapon level scale.
  • Image Source: N/A
  • Canon Link: http://starwars.wiki...i/Planet_Prison
  • Restricted Missions: N/A
  • Primary Source: N/A


  • Manufacturer: Defiance Consolidated Multipurpose Manufacturing
  • Model: Ionizing Field Generator
  • Affiliation: Sith Empire
  • Modularity: No
  • Production: Limited

  • Material: Luxum crystal, diatium, durasteel


  • Classification: Ion
  • Size: Extreme
  • Weight: Extreme
  • Ammunition Type: Power generator
  • Ammunition Capacity: Effectively infinite
  • Reload Speed: None

  • Effective Range: Battlefield
  • Rate of Fire: Very Low
  • Stopping Power: Very High
  • Recoil: None


  • Generates an ionizing field over a span of several dozen square kilometers in the upper atmosphere of a planet, acting similarly to a planetary ion cannon by disabling spacecraft trying to approach the battlefield from orbit.


  • The ionizing field effectively prevents enemy spacecraft from landing troops or providing air support, forcing them to land troops, vehicles, and repulsorcraft a good distance away from the battlefield, preventing enemy forces from receiving assistance or alternatively preventing them from landing and establishing a beachhead there.


  • The ionizing field is indiscriminate. Any and all friendly fightercraft attempting to enter the atmosphere, as well as vehicle transports, shuttles, etc. will be disabled too, effectively cutting off the allied forces on the planet and potentially allowing them to be overrun.

The concepts of the Planet Prison, an ancient Galactic Republic superweapon, intrigued Vanessa Vantai, who began small scale tests of a similar weapon using Fragmentor and Scrapmetal-class drones on the surface of the planet X-377E. The ionizing field generator was born after some months of testing - initial prototypes could only project an ionizing field over a few hundred meters, but further refinement allowed it to reach the upper atmosphere of a planet, projecting over several dozen square kilometers of land. Though nowhere near as capable as the planet-ionizing Planet Prison, the ionizing field generator, once deployed on a planet, effectively rendered an area the size of a standard galactic battlefield a deathtrap for any fighter-bomber support or landers that would attempt to deploy craft in the area.


The ionizing field generator works by sending pulses of energy through a series of Luxum crystals, resulting in an extremely ionized pulse of power that is distributed into the atmosphere through the top of the generator. The weapon scatters this constantly pulsed ion energy throughout an area ranging several dozen square kilometers over the entirety of the battlefield before it dissipates. The field spreading through the upper atmosphere allows for vehicles and technology on the planet, as well as most repulsorcraft, to function on the battlefield in question.


Individual ionizing field generators are being deployed with Imperial Army detachments for initial testing. More units will be provided with the technology as it is tested in warfare.

Looking for Company Help

08 March 2018 - 04:10 PM

Hi there.


So I have this company that makes ships. Would definitely like to make some stuff for Dark Magus use within the Sith Empire. That said, I'm a Tier III company thanks to having had to restart, and as such I can only mass produce ships up to 1000m. I'm looking for anyone who'd be interested in helping me to grow my company so I can further provide you guys with bigger ships.
