Overview

Based on the planet Aqualina in the Aqualine system in Galaxy 3, the Aquarian Shipbuilding Corporation has become the predominant producer of ships in the area. Owing to the world's almost completely aquatic nature, the roots of the Corporation are in marine and sub-marine shipbuilding for the amphibious humanoid inhabitants of the planet.

Owing to the unusual nature of the world and the distinct lack of dry land, the evolution of construction has been more nature-based than industrial. The ships tend to have a more organic nature, often constructed using material such as coral and volcanic alloys.

When their ships spread out beyond the locality, this very distinctive construction quickly caught the attention of the ship-buying public. Belying their appearance, the range soon proved as tough and adaptable as their producers, leading to reliance and orders from both the civilian, miliary and Galcop sectors of the market.

Notable Features

The Orca class destroyer is a new addition to the military and police ranks. Big, slow and ugly, its not going to win any races or beauty contests, but what it lacks in grace it makes up for in raw power. Heavily armed with both lasers, plasma turrets plus a brace of missiles, these craft are primarily designed to counter the increasing threat of Thargoid capital ships and larger fugitive vessels.

If you have a price on your head it's not a wise move to come to the attention of one...
