The Triumvirate

The Caelestis-Class Star Defender is a warship design produced by the Triumvirate to serve as part of their fleets and as a versatile defencive capital ship.

Characteristics

The Caelestis-Class was named distinctively from the old-world dialect meaning "Belonging to Heaven" or "Coming from Heaven", and it drew upon the distinctive and classic wedge-shape of earlier warships familiar to Aquilaris under Imperial rule.

The class is often used as a command ship and combines certain elements from Star Dreadnoughts like the Executor-class and earlier Star Destroyers like the Imperial-class.

Offensive and defensive systems

The Caelestis-class is considered one of the most powerful warships in the galaxy and is noted as having unmatched weapon systems and starfighter components. With its sleek outline it presents less of a target to potential enemies while at the same time optimizing its shield protection.

The forward-sloping superstructure also gives excellent vantage points for the Caelestis' main gun batteries, more so than on the Star Destroyers of the previous centuries.

The class has slightly more armament than the older Imperial II-class Star Destroyer although some of the guns were of a similar design to the XX-9 turbolaser batteries of the old Galactic Empire. The Caelestis-Class also possesses an interdiction field, capable of pulling other ships out of Hyperspace.

Complement

The class has a ventral hangar where starfighters and shuttles could land and embark from, where varying classes of support craft can be found stored in racks in narrow passages throughout the hanger area. Traffic control centers are located on either side of the main hanger opening and overlooking the area.

The sloping profile allows the Caelestis-Class to be shorter than the Imperial-class while at the same time allow it to carry a decent amount of landing craft and small starships.

Propulsion systems

As with most Star Destroyer variants, a reactor bulb protrusion is visible outside the ventral hull, however it is not known whether this is the ship's primary reactor or a forward secondary one.

Bridge tower

The Caelestis-Class has at least one conference room with an advanced holographic projector table in the center. Its bridge is styled quite differently than other Star Destroyer variants due to alot of the advanced holographic technologies while still maintaining a Star Destroyer feel with slightly shallower crew pits encircled by a command deck where ship commanders can maintain a view of the ship's surroundings out of the panorama windows.
