"Who Are You?"
As a warship this ship has no peers; although it is only about a kilometer long (0.621 miles) the technology of the Vorlon race is at least a million years ahead of that of the younger races. For its size this is easily the most powerful ship in the galaxy.
This Model is scaled to be appropriate with the miniatures game Star Wars Armada, Use a Medium base with fielding this ship for gameplay
The ship is armed with a large Quantum Gravitic Discharge Cannon for its primary weapon. This weapon is capable of destroying just about any known ship with a single volley. The large firing arc in front of the ship helps too. Supplementing this are 60 Quantum Gravitic lightning guns for engaging smaller craft. The Vorlons have no missile launchers on any of their ships. Apparently they think they have enough firepower to do without them.
Apparently they`re right.....
The entire ship is semi alive: it is a mixture of both organic and mechanical features. The entire hull of this ship is organic and can both repair itself and can adapt to attacks to reduce damage. No attack does full effect on the hull more than once.
Backing up this mighty armor are powerful shields consisting of interwoven energy fields and layers of gravitational distortion. These shields are capable of absorbing nearly any attack, be it pure energy or kinetic in nature. The only way to overload the shields is by pouring a massive amount of energy into them in a short time. In a battle against the Shadows, A Shadow cruiser fired its Quantum Gravitic Discharge Cannon into the shields of a Vorlon dreadnought and depleted them, but without actually damaging the ship itself. These shields are also more powerful that the shields carried on any ship in the Three Galaxies.
The ships sublight propulsion consists of a powerful gravity drive system and a form of ion engines. Apparently the ion engines supply main thrust and the gravity drive supplements this and is used for maneuvering, giving the ship the maneuverability found in light cruisers of the younger races. ( The gravity drive is not used for main drive because the Vorlons are Very conservative and often use older but incredibly perfected technology rather than use technology which is still new to them. They have had grav drive for millennia, but Vorlons live a LONG time!! ) The ship has a jumpgate generator for faster than light drive, but this might actually not be the same kind of jump engine the younger races use: the color of the vortex it forms going in and out of hyperspace is different, suggesting a different operating mechanism.
Since the ship is "alive" it has an intelligence similar to that of a sentient AI and so can perform difficult maneuvers on its own. Despite this it still needs a crew for maximum performance. On sensor readings the ship will read as built out of organic materials rather than the metal alloys that most starships are built out of. When its ECM is engaged it is very hard to detect.
If one of these ships is met on the border of Vorlon space, the Vorlon ship will attack any ship attempting to enter Vorlon space unless the other ship has a specific mission that has already been approved by the Vorlons. If the other ship stays clearly outside Vorlon space and just transmits a message, it will not be molested but otherwise, the Vorlon ship will destroy any other ships on the Vorlon boarder even if it is a case of serious engine trouble. You would do well to remember that to Vorlons different things are important than to most other races.
