The Loveless - Smuggling Ship [WIP]
« on: November 26, 2017, 11:42:56 PM »
The Loveless
Ship Description
The Loveless is a unique, one-of-a-kind vessel that's been around now for centuries, although it disappears from history every now and again when its Captain decides to go into hiding at random.

Fashioned in the image of a deep sea (and long extinct) fish, Loveless is a large ship meant for multiple purposes; first and foremost, it is the home of its Captain, and secondly, it was a pirate ship and warship, though now it serves as an intergalactic smuggling vessel. It holds a crew of 55 comfortably, features a cargo bay and docking hangar that can hold up to two smaller ships, a kitchen, individual crew quarters, shower/locker room, brig, medical bay, weapons storage, and captain's quarters, all placed throughout three levels. It isn't particularly speedy or agile, but The Loveless can take a real beating and serves best as a tank.

Mounted with several ion cannons and fortified for the best defense with intense shields and thick exterior, she can also make jumps into hyperspace much more quickly and efficiently than your average other ship, one of the few vessels still in existence as old as she is that can do it so well and so precisely.

Ship History
The Loveless and her partner The Hydra were commissioned at the same time by Kirkley and Ain some thousand or so years ago. Originally, the two were meant for the purpose of escaping the turmoil brewing on earth between the humans and dragons, and eventually they became the two warships of a fleet under Ain's command for the purpose of establishing a loyal network of illegal connections to serve her later on in life. Piracy, the black market trade, human trafficking, and drug cartels were all a part of the lives of those who lived on each ship and those that flew under them. After a good 200 year run, Ain and Kirkley retired the life of piracy in favor of her taking a step back and controlling things from the shadows with the empire she had constructed for herself with Kirkley's help. The terrors that were at the time galactically infamous ceased as both ships "disappeared", locked away until Ain called on Kirkley again.

At present he works for her as her head smuggler, taking all manner of mission, both illegal and non, often heading the most dangerous and important runs by his lonesome. Only recently has he recruited a crew again to return to a full-time life aboard his ship, partially for the adventure, and partially to protect the ones he loves and cares about.
