Raxilite

The raxilites, from their planet in the Vast, quickly embraced bioengineered spacefaring vehicles upon their introduction to the tech. They and their shipyards on Raxil have had an influence on some of these designs and originated others.

Description

The Gowan is a warship that comprises 12 hive-joining starships, at least six of which are Doons. It takes the normal amount of hive-joining time to come online as an individual vessel. Raxilites have an armada that includes Gowans to enforce their ban on unauthorized visitors to Raxil. Xenowardens have adopted Gowans for interdiction missions to safeguard their protectorates. These ships can carry more than the complement and have gardens to feed those persons.

Special Abilities

Adaptable Hive Bay

The Gowan can use its hive bay to launch two Doons, two UC Pods, or one of each vessel. If it does so, it loses Hull Points as if using the hive bay’s ability to launch Pods.

Description

Raxilites designed the enormous Crown Canopy model as a mobile space station, acting as a representation of their home world far from their native star system. Although travel to Raxil is restricted, Crown Canopy capital starships can provide visitors a taste of that idyllic planet, along with raxilite culture, without placing the raxilite home world at any risk. The Crown Canopy resembles UC Gardenships in function, but the vessel functions on a larger scale. Massive hydroponic gardens double as parks and recreation areas for nature lovers, and the vessel is self-sustaining, recycling almost everything. Support ships—Doons, Gleaners, and even Gowans—travel with each Crown Canopy, providing defense and supplemental resources. A Crown Canopy could form the backbone of a self-sustaining carrier battle group in times of war, although as of 317 ag, the vessels have yet to be used for such a task. It’s possible the UC will take up the design in the future, perhaps even upgrading it to dreadnought size.

With a light crew complement, a Crown Canopy can accommodate many more guests than its expansions suggest. These small, comfortable lodgings are integrated with the gardens, which include space for “outdoor” sleeping for an experience like camping. The residences and gardens also adjoin the recreation facilities aboard the Crown Canopy, creating a cohesive and pleasant whole for passengers.

Description

A short-range scout ship, originally of raxilite design, the Doon is elongated and narrow, with a wide end like the puff of a dandelion seed. It features only enough space for a pilot. A Doon can take the place of a UC Pod to help form a UC Arkship. Doons can also use their hive joining to form a Raxilite Gowan.
