OK, a word on Chaper One: CHapter One introduces the first of my protagonists, a fighter pilot trainee. He provides the "grunt's" POV, and will return in later chapters.

Now, a word on the Star Knight class SD(V):

These ships were not CVA's; rather, they were built on SD hulls - the biggest HT-8 ship, and designed specifically for warp point assults. Theyre far from an optimal desgin (I learned from theif mistake), but they were what I came up with for this camaign. In future campaigns I cut the number of fighter bays down to 24, but these were the ones I uses for this campaign.

The Star Knight is an HT-8 ship; the Star Knight II's were new build, and I would have refitted the others to that design as time allowed (the campaign ended before then)

Star Knight – class SD(V) (AM)

(4) Sx40 Ax40 ZH(BbM)H(IIII)Q(IIII)Q(IIII)LhQ(IIII)VVVVVVQVVVVVVQVVVVVVVVV VVVQDcVVVVVVVVVVVVLhDcVVVVVVDcMgDcQMgMg(?)(IIII) (5)
-SOx20, Aix20, Vx42, Dcx4, 26 XO; 1 pn

CLASS UNITS: (8) Dark Knight#, White Knight*, Death Knight*, Paladin, Cavalier, Overlord*, Holy Knight, Samurai*

Star Knight II– class SD(V) (AM2)

note: # = an elite ship, * a crack ship


I hope you enjoy the story!

No internal weapons at all?

Nope. It's sole job is to get fighters through a warp point. It's essentially a CVA before CVA hulls exist. Hence, no weapons. It should have had more armor to surive the number of DSB-L we were throwing around, but you live and learn. :)
