Dur Telemon-class Scout Cruiser

A series of 12 ships to be built by the IISS for exploration and survey duties. The keel of the first was laid on 231-1118 at the Bilstein yards, Glisten/Glisten/SM. Able to remain on station nearly two years without resupply, the Dur Telemon Class Scout Cruiser, named for the late scout hero, will be the ship of choice for surveying a new system. Two Type S Scouts are carried to maintain communications with base and to extend to capabilities of the vessel.

The 73 crew will be joined by 127 mission specialists. They will enjoy the facilities of six labs, as well as a gym and swimming pool provided to make extended missions less arduous. Lifeboats and emergency Lowberths are provided as safety measures. A standard sickbay and Surgery provides top of the line medical care.

A complement of small craft include 6 enclosed Air/Rafts, a Gig, 4 Launches, and 3 Modular Cutters with 3 additional modules.

The ship is armored to factor 2 and features configurable turrets in its 16 Triple Missile and Triple BLaser turrets and its 18 Triple Sand turrets. The powerful main computer puts it on par with many capital ships in computing power, and in conjunction with the lower-powered computers in each Lab allows rapid processing of incoming data.
