Stayaow-class (Aslan) Scout


Stayaow is Aslan for "Intrepid Scout" or "Valiant Pioneer." Unlike the smaller Hraye-class scout, the Stayaow is intended more to serve the greater glory of the clan than the lazy wanderings of Ihatei. Primarily it is a reconnaissance and liaison vessel for the smaller clan navies. Usually it is encountered along Fteirle clan boundaries as first alert picket ships that give advanced warning to clan fleets and trekhyair contingents. In wartime this class is seconded to specialized escort units to protect the fleet against ambush, and to reconnoiter systems off to the side of an advance.

It is a flat, round craft made according to typical Aslan "soap-bubble" architectural conceits. The internal layout is also set to a round arrangement; corridors follow the hull contour in a giant loop. The crew quarters and fuel tanks line the outer hull skin, while the bridge and main engineering sections are located centrally next to each other. The main armament is located at the summit and nadir of the dome, and the air-raft hangar is located at what would be the chin of a normal design. A shrine of heroes is located off of the main bridge for use by the crew.

Before the Imperial Civil War, this class was most frequently found along the border between the older sectors of the Hierate, and regions like Reavers Deep and Dark Nebula. After the initial Ihatei wave broke upon the Domain of Deneb, Clan navies equipped with this type appeared with greater frequency in the Domain, an area they were previously rare. Presently the class has survived only in the remnant of the Hierate behind the claw, where they continue to soldier on with clan navies and Aslan quarantine units.

(*) Despite what the description says about the bridge placement, the actual manner in which the Damage Location Table is set up is somewhat arbitrary. Technically speaking, the bridge is always the '1' position, based upon tables of ships in BL, such as the Midu Agashaam, that have a bridge mounted aft above the drive section.
