The Laxagos Destroyer is generalist vessel that has seen considerable service in the Matriarchal Navy. The Laxagos’ latest refit saw an upgrade to both its primary spinal mount lazer and an increase from nine to twelve higher-power particle beam cannons. The increased power core also allows extra auxiliary point-defence turrets, raiding it from rating 120 to 180. The refit increased its mass by over 10% and despite the largest power core, the ship has seen a slight decrease in acceleration.
The Laxagos’ missile pods were installed in one of the prior upgrades after their success on the Isanagas Missile Frigates. There was at first some debate as to what attitude they should have to the hull in the vertical axis, ranging from 45º in either direction from the ship’s vertical centre-line. This debate, which had little technical merit, was primarily fought between two opposing engineers and became a focal point for their professional spat. In the end, the higher-ups were forced to step in and enforce a solution. The best compromise was to simply them at 90º to the vertical – as had originally been suggested by the original plans.
