The Inter-Stellar Concordium (ISC) is an organization of five species associated by treaty, all speaking a common language. In this, they are similar to the Federation. As is typical of the Alpha Octant’s eastern regions, all of these species are native to different planets. Still, most of these systems are within a relatively small area at the center of ISC territory. The various species discovered each other, fought several minor wars, and formed the ISC before the era of warp-powered starships. There, the resemblance to the Federation ends. The ISC has no concept of a Prime Directive and will intervene in the development of any species to bring it up to ISC standards. The ISC’s prime conviction is that “a peaceful, harmonious and well-ordered universe is the duty of all sentient species. Civilizations collapse when that duty is ignored; therefore, it must be required of all.” The dark underside of the ISC is that they have no respect for individual or cultural rights that violate this principle and will go to any lengths to enforce their idea of “peace, order, and good government.” Therefore, the ISC will try (usually successfully) to separate warring powers, forcing them back within their borders. The ISC does not try to conquer those powers or force them to adopt ISC philosophies, but the ISC enforces a “Zero Tolerance for War” policy.
Historically the Inter-Stellar Concordium designed a “war cruiser” during the General War based on their observations of the combat operations of the “insane empires” shortly before the start of the war, but built very few. Things changed dramatically when the Andromedan assault kicked into high gear. It was a response to the losses and the large numbers of their ships cut off in isolated cantonments that led the Inter-Stellar Concordium to dust off the designs and begin building war cruisers. The original war cruiser design had not envisioned the kind of assault the Andromedans were conducting. Therefore, a couple of years later, the Inter-Stellar Concordium began producing this improved war cruiser design, dubbed the heavy war cruiser. The Inter-Stellar Concordium probably built more heavy war cruisers than any other empire, but as in every empire, the heavy war cruiser never totally supplanted production of war cruisers.
The ship is available in a variety of materials. Ships are unpainted, use standard flight stands available from many sources, and, while designed for gaming, make fine display pieces.
