The Aegis Vulcan is a versatile support ship capable of refueling, repairing, and rearming other ships. Whether pinned down under heavy fire and in need of ammunition, low on quantum fuel after an ill-planned jump, or stranded in unknown space with a busted thruster, a pilot in distress can always count on a Vulcan and its cadre of BARD drones to lend speedy, efficient assistance.[1]

Features

BARD drones

Early concept of the BARD drone

The Vulcan carries four BARD drones that can haul small amounts of fuel or ammo for friendly ships, or repair them with built-in tools.

Two drones may be active at the same time, controlled at two manned support stations on the Vulcan. The other two drones are stored on the Vulcan unless needed for replacement or an alternate task.[2]

History

The Vulcan is designed by famed Aegis Dynamics engineer Parnell Rowan. The ship is popular among the UEE Navy and also civilian operators such as CTR alike.[3]

Development

The Vulcan was first introduced in 2018-02-15 with the Around the Verse episode. It was the first concept ship in 2018. It was developed as the starter ship for the refueling, repairing, and rearming professions as only huge ships that have substantial crew requirements and time requirements were developed at that time.[4]
