Heaven Cemetary Ship

HeavenCemetaryShip2 (16K)


The Heaven Cemetary Ship is a middle class ship providing cemeteries for those preferring traditional ways of burial, containing temples, churches and also some residential districts. Some refer to it as the 'ghost ship', but its environment is not bad. Heaven Cemetary Ships are linked to a Bolognese Class Stealth Frigate in much the same way that the New Macross Battle class and City class sections combine to form one larger ship. The Frigates can disconnect from the Heaven Cemetary Ship if neccessary, and the Heaven Cemetary Ship is equipped with an emergency bridge to control the ship while the Frigate is detached.

    Small Airlocks/Access Hatches (250)             250 each
    Main Airlock                                  1,000

(3) Auxiliary Engines (4)                         7,000 each

  1. Depleting the MDC of the main body will essentially destroy the Ship. All internal systems will shut down, including life support and internal gravity. The colony ship itself will be an unsalvageable floating wreck, and any surviving colonists (and marine life) must be rescued quickly or will die from asphyxiation as the remaining atmosphere drains into space.
  2. The semi-transparent ocean dome is protected by the Pin Point Barrier Defence System and not a Projectile Sheild. Therefore if the atmospheric dome is destroyed while in space (1D6x10) percent of the emigrants inside will be instantly killed due to explosive decompression.
  3. Depleting the MDC of the main engines will force the ship to rely on its auxiliary engines. Depleting the MDC of the main engines AND auxiliary engines will leave the colony ship adrift in space. If in an atmosphere, the ship will crash (destruction of the main engines will render the antigravity system useless due to loss of power).
  4. The Pinpoint Barriers regenerate at a rate of 1,250 MD per second (2,500 MD per melee round). If destroyed, a barrier will completely regenerate within four seconds (2 melee rounds). See the Pinpoint Barrier System entry for details.


Speed(sublight): 0.16 speed of light (25,600 miles per second)
Speed(Auxiliary Drives): Mach 3
Space Fold: Range Unlimited (1 light year every 6 minutes)
Planet bound: Designed to land in a planetary ocean when necessary but not designed to maneuver in an atmosphere. The Heaven Cemetary Ship is NOT designed to land on the ground. If it does so the landing will inflict 3D6x1000 MD damage to the main body of the spacecraft.
Maximum Range: Unlimited (estimated 30 year life span)



Originally developed by researchers onboard the SDF-01 Macross during Space War One, the Pinpoint Barrier System is a standard defense system on board all UN Spacy starships and colony Ships, including the Heaven Cemetary ships. The system generates four small disc-shaped force fields that can be positioned anywhere along the ship to deflect missiles, energy beams or projectiles. Each pinpoint barrier is about 61 m in length and can absorb up to 5,000 MD in damage, which then regenerates within four seconds (2 melee rounds). The barriers can also be layered on top of each other to generate a field which provides 20,000 MDC and can even deflect heavy particle beams (usually).

The four barriers are controlled by operators in the command tower of the carrier. These operators are instructed to defend (1) any breaks or weaknesses in the projectile shield and/or ocean dome, (2) the engineering section/Frigate docking section, and (3) the main and auxiliary engines, in that order. The operators primarily concentrate on defending the ship against larger spacecraft and leave defense against attacking mecha to the VF pilots from the battle carrier.
