 NEBULA CONFEDERATION TECHNOLOGICAL SPECIFICATIONS
   During our stay with the Nebula Confederation we only got to see very few designs in person, which limited our opportunities to gather technical specifications. With other known designs we could only gather the most basic details. All these notable designs share one aspect, in that they tend to be aerospace designs that can use Skip-Drives. As one can expect, the Skip-Drive and other new technologies, had a significant impact on how the local battlefields look like, with combat doctrines centered around space combat, infantry combat, and precision orbital bombardment. 
   A notable detail is that most races are severely limited in the number of designs that they utilize, this is likely caused by their limited industrial base, as they often rely on refitted equipment or obsolete equipment from the more powerful races.





MICRO-SHUTTLE X-O
Mass: 9 tons
Type: Aerospace Fighter (Omni), Ultra-Light
Power Plant: Fusion XL, Skip-Core compatible
Armor: 2.5 ton, Heavy Ferro-aluminium
Typical Armament:
        3 tons of pod space
Notes: 
   The Micro-Shuttle has its origin as an ancient training fighter, with room for an instructor and small group of trainees. The underlying technology has been updated in several successive mark updates with the last commonly known version being the Mk-V. The design eventually fell into disuse in the Inner Sphere for being too fragile, but various locals have adopted it mostly as an aerospace APC that is easy to both manufacture and conceal when landed. The most advanced version is the X-O, which seems to be partly based upon reverse engineered Servus technology and is omni-capable.
   The armor protection of even the older previous models can take a hit from a Medium Laser before going internal and are usually armed with a single small laser, while the X-O model can do far more both in offense and defense, but it is generally not advised to use these shuttles in open combat. When out-fitted with a Skip-Core it can independently travel between nearby star systems, but it would be smart to stick to safe routes to prevent emergency stops and hostile encounters. It has various possible configurations, examples include a cargo configuration that can double as bomber, an infantry configuration for tightly transporting a platoon, one with a Skip-Core and extra fuel for interstellar travel, or even configurations with loaded with sensors for conducting surveys.

EXPLORER-CLASS HEAVY CRUISER
Mass: 24000 tons
Type: DropShip
Power Plant: Fusion, w. Advanced Skip Core
Armor: 112 tons, Heavy Ferro-aluminium
Typical Armament:
        11 SCP/3 “Phased PPC VI”
        6 SCG/3 “Torpedo Launcher VI”
Features: Large NCSS, HPG, Medium Factory Unit, 6 Small Craft
Notes: 
   After seven years of practical experience and escalating conflicts it became clear that the Diplomat-class was not effective enough for combat. During this time the Confederation didn't sit still, but started developing another new ship based upon feedback from the Diplomat-class, which was then quickly deployed.
   This class is highly capable for the purpose that the name suggests, with its launchers it can easily spread a large amount of probes, and with skip-capable shuttles can simultaneously cover multiple sites in a solar system. We have even seen stock footage of this class being able to submerge into the sea, and later rise back up to orbit. Although it is highly capable at exploring, it is likely capable of engaging normal smaller WarShips. This does come with risks as most WarShips would tear through the shield in short order.

Power Plant: Fusion, with Advanced Skip Core
Armor: 90 tons, Ferro-aluminium
Typical Armament:
        12 SCP/3 “Phased PPC VI”
        3 SCG/5 “Torpedo Launcher VII”
Features: Large NCSS, HPG, Large Factory Unit, 12 Small Craft
Notes: 
   The Diplomat class can best be described as an armed Cruise Liner. Was developed as the final answer to the conflicts in the nebula. The designers took the carrot-and-stick approach very literally, with its massive size and weapons to intimidate, while the luxurious interior would show how hospitable and prosperous the union was.
   A long period of peace and a great technological leap forward gave rise to the Diplomat-class. The weaponry consists out of 3 Sub-Capital Gauss used for launching Torpedo munitions and a massive array of Sub-Capital PPCs. This massive aerodyne was designed to show off how advanced and wealthy the Nebula Union was. As a result it looks and operates a lot like a luxury liner, the recent conflicts saw it being mostly replaced by more cost effective designs with a stronger emphasis on combat.
   Traveling on this ship is a very pleasant experience, extremely spacious and luxurious, with large entertainment rooms and many other facilities, with these luxuries and it's massive size, it is designed to impress, not intimidate, this makes it very easy to understand why this ship is used for diplomatic missions. However many of it's capabilities will also makes it suitable to be a transport or carrier. However it is still more heavily armed and protected than previous designs. It also has many other advantages over previous designs, it has advanced manufacturing facilities, a larger array of shuttles and transporters, and a faster skip-drive.
   It is also incredibly spacious, and its massive cargo bays can be reconfigured to transport a lot of conventional infantry. One of the most interesting claims is that the life-support system can support an additional 15,000 people by converting cargo space into improvised infantry bays. However in such cases it is limited by the fact that it has to rely on its shuttles to land the troops. The reason for this limitation is that while the Diplomat can land on a planetary surface, the engines can't generate enough thrust to reliably return to orbit. So any landed or crash-landed Diplomat will either have to be stripped down or be re-purposed to act as a local base.

The energy storage batteries were replaced with additional support facilities, the remaining space was used for upgrading other aspects such as weaponry and protection. Currently it the largest and most important base in the Nebula Confederation.

That was the original intent, but I wasn't happy with the layout nor were the large fiction pieces up to the standard that I want to set.
I wanted to write something with depth but is in-line with TOS and TNG, but that is so hard, hopefully I can get some inspiration out of the feedback.
Also I don't want to delay releasing this for more than a year (was originally intended as an 2019 April Fools release), so for now I will just post it as such.



FOUNDER-CLASS CORVETTE
Mass: 1900 tons
Type: DropShip
Hull: Leopard
Power Plant: Fusion w. Basic Skip Core
Armor: 29.5 tons, Standard Armor
Typical Armament:
        2 SCL-2s
        1 Piranha Launcher
   18 Small Lasers
Features: 1 Small Craft
Notes:  The Founder class was originally a local civilian refit of the Leopard DropShip that removed all the ammo based weaponry and 'Mech bays in exchange for increased cargo space and a Skip Drive. This class was later rapidly militarized by adding sub-capital weapons and point-defense bays. In this case they mounted the functional equivalent of two Sub-Capital Lasers and one Piranha Launcher. In time this refit became obsolete and most were demilitarized to be sold to civilians and minor races as small transports.

TRAVELLER-CLASS DESTROYER
Mass: 5000 tons
Type: DropShip
Hull: Monarch
Power Plant: Fusion with Standard Skip Core
Armor: 45 tons, Ferro-aluminium
Typical Armament:
        3 SCP/3 “Phased PPC VI”
        2 SCG/3 “Torpedo Launcher VI”
   18 Small Pulse Lasers
Features: HPG, Small NCSS, 2 Small Craft
Notes:  The Traveller-class was the primary ship design of the Nebula Confederation during the Rim War, although it is derived from the Monarch-class DropShip they outfitted it with the most advanced weapons that they had access to. Beside that it also has a standard Skip-Drive and many other features, such as a Small NCSS, a HPG, and basic factory unit. With these features it is a balanced ship that could operate independently for a couple of years if required.
This generation of ships introduced the Sub-Capital PPC and the Sub-Capital Gauss. These ships were a lot more efficient than previous designs and were able to explore large parts of local space.

Features: Small NCSS, 1 ASF, Steerage Quarters
Notes:  The Boxer-class is an extreme refit of the outdated Traveller-class. These are faster, better armored, and have far more firepower. Even if the shield were to drop it has enough armor to take some hits. They designed this vessel to carry the maximum amount of pain in a tough little vessel.
However it had to make many sacrifices to gain this performance boost, as such it can't really operate independently. The onboard facilities, transport assets and the crew quarters are minimalistic for NC standards. They are usually deployed around fixed locations or assigned to escorting civilian convoys. In large fleets they are often deployed in attack squadrons.

That Founder class sounds Klingon-ish.

Just move each SCL to the wings and add a ECM and Stealth armor...

Of course, you'll want a bigger one.

Ive really enjoyed these - being Nebula Confederation gives us breathing room to get outside the normal 'run of stuff'.   Also really like the art, where you have it.  Sadly, art is harder to come by than designs...

RIM ALLIANCE TECHNOLOGICAL SPECIFICATIONS
   Although they started their old conflict with a technological edge from reverse-engineering SLDF technology which gave them ERPPCs and lead to Chameleon Signature Armor, they have since lost their edge as the Confederation became the first to introduce new weapon systems and brand new hull-types.
The living conditions onboard Rim Alliance ships are very bad, with steerage quarters being seen as being above average. Also the only fresh food onboard their ships tend to be pigs and worms that feed on any biological waste, understandabily many of their allies stick to their own rations.

Notes:  Mass produced since the beginning of the Rim Alliance, now deemed to be almost disposable, it's fragile construction limits it to harassing attacks and raiding. Any attacks that pass the shield will quickly obliterate this ship. Has been observed to be capable of transporting large aquatic animals, why they were build with this capacity nobody knows.

There is a borg-like faction (See fiction https://bg.battletech.com/forums/index.php?topic=68571.0 ), I just need to find some time to clean the design formatting and rechecks some numbers.

MANEI SERVUS “BJORG” TECHNOLOGICAL SPECIFICATIONS
The following descriptions are the most notable ships used by the Manei Servus, however they also use many captured ships that they have altered for their own usage. Those ships are easy to recognize by their patchwork armor reinforcements and other modifications that clearly ruin their atmospheric performance.
There are also a number of common traits in each notable Servus ship; either storage space or factory space for supplying Servus implants. Another trait is the large number of infantry bays to maximize their possible workforce, this is not a problem for the life-support systems of the ship as Servus implants have an independent life-support function.


BRICK BOARDING CRAFT
Mass: 100 tons
Type: Small Craft
Hull: Bus
Power Plant: Fusion
Armor: 6 tons, Heavy Ferro-aluminium
Typical Armament:
        Unarmed
Features: 6 Infantry Platoons
Notes:  The Brick Small Craft is based upon the S-7A Bus and is designed to be used as a disposable boarding craft or suicide projectile. For this purpose it was given a massive engine upgrade and Infantry Bay, but the upgrade didn't include any weapons or Skip Core. Another possible threat comes from the fact that Servus Implants allow for cyborgs to survive nearly indefintely without external life-support or food, so even a stranded craft can be a longterm problem.

BALL-CLASS TRANSPORT
Mass: 4000 tons
Type: DropShip
Hull: Pentagon
Power Plant: Fusion with Advanced Skip Core
Armor: 57.5 tons, Heavy Ferro-aluminium
Typical Armament:
        2 SCG/3 “Torpedo Launcher”
        24 ERLLs
Features: 36 Infantry Platoons
Notes:  The Ball-class DropShip is based upon the older WOB Pentagon PWS and as a DropShip it is one of the few standard Servus designs capable of planetary landings, as such it is often tasked with scouting and planetary assaults. The normal operating procedure for the Ball-class is to perform orbital bombardment to soften up the target before landing nearby to deploy infantry for a conventional assault on the objective.

Features: 36 Small Craft, DropShuttle Bay, 6000 Infantry Platoons, HPG
Notes:  This class is an modernization of the ancient Cruiser-class, with systems being updated to modern or local equivalents. It is worrying however that post battle analysis of debris and sensor data has indicated that some of these are newly manufactured. It has to be noted that the massive on-board Manei Servus workforce is capable to perform hull repairs and dangerous damage control tasks whilest in combat, as they can handle hard vacuum and have no regards of their own lives.

Cool little universe
Thanks, here is a little more, and I hope to add some tech notes in the weekend.


RUNALOT SMALL CRAFT
Debuted after the first encounter with the Bjorg threat, this new class of small craft is set to replace most of the existing SC workforce of the Nebula Confederation. With an advanced Skip-Core and thick armored hull its defenses are similar to larger obsolete ships, at the same time it has decent traveling endurance and because of it's semi-modular nature it can be easily refitted to specific missions. (Quirk: Modular Weapons)
The most common variants include an Attack variant for direct combat, a cargo variant that can transport over 50 tons of cargo, a minelayer that can carry five dispensers, and a reconnaissance variant with a wide range of electronics.

Skip Drive
   Skip-Core technology is the preferred FTL propulsion system by many of the Nebula's locals. We don't know how it works but we do know that it takes plasma from the power-plant to the Skip-Core where it will TECHNOBABBLE, after which the altered plasma will be send to the engine exhaust to TECHNOBABBLE, creating a thin KF-Field around the ship, suitable for both for propulsion and defense.
   This drive might have also been invented before, but it would have likely been deemed impractical. While it weights less than a Jump-drive (2% of TT), it is slower than an equally technologically developed Jump-drive, requires more fuel, not compatible with Jump Drives, and is highly explosive. These severe downsides should have made it a dead end technology for any previous inventor, and force them stop further development. However in the Nebula using such a system makes more sense.

Shield points: Total number of shield points is calculated by multiplying their Tonnage, Flank MP, and the Core Factor. Each type of Core has their own factor, 0.5 for the basic, 1.0 for the standard, and 1.5 for the advanced model. Also the reactors of WarShips, JumpShips and Space Stations aren't fully compatible with this system they can only use an stationary version (no FTL), this means that their Flank MP is equal to their station keeping thrust (0.1).

Stability Mechanism: The Skip Drive offers additional protection and independent FTL, but it is quite explosive and the stability of it needs to be managed. There are a large number of actions and events that induce more instability in a core, these include but are not limited to: Depleted Shield facing, moving shield points between facings, an emergency stop (determined by an GM), Engine hits, etc. If the instability increases it will produce side-effects such as sensor interference or weapons being inoperative, and if it goes too far the core will explode.
Core explosion can be prevented by either an successful ejection of the core or having the crew slowly stabilize the core (with successful piloting rolls), the number of rolls that can be made will depend on the number of intact crew/pilot hit boxes (each crew hit reducing the number of actions that can be taken).
An ejected core will explode if it collides with anything, is hit with a capital weapon, or if it is command-detonated. If the core explodes it will create an area-effect blast equal to the core tonnage in capital damage points. In space it will have an area-effect blast radius of 1 hex, Skip Cores from Fighters and Small Craft only affect their own squadrons.


Phased PPCs
   This local modification allows for PPCs to have more flexibility, the new features of such PPCs are that it is then able to produce nearly any type of particle, the damage output can be dialed down to prevent excessive damage to a target, and with this modification a PPC is also capable of stunning conventional infantry from a distance by sending an electrical charge combined with a specific EM burst. This modification is possible with any type of PPCs, ranging from infantry weapons to Naval PPCs. 


Chameleon Signature Armor
   Early in the Rim War, the Rim Alliance reverse-engineered the Star League's null-signature system and found a way to apply it to capital-scale units. Like its predecessor this system mostly consists out of advanced electronic countermeasures and heat reservoirs. 
   Rules: While this does not allow a ship to escape detection when using the planetary drive, it does allow a ship to enter and exit hyperspace without being detected, as well as rotate in space.  While it is active no weapons can be used. The system also shuts down if any armor facing is depleted. 


Sub-Capital Gauss
   Sub-Capital Gauss Rifles, often referred by the locals as Torpedo Launchers,  is another weapon system that was invented in response to Skip-Core technology. In the past most local ships relied on capital missiles with fusion warheads to bring down any shields, however these missiles took up a large amount of the available tonnage and were vulnerable to point-defenses. A solution was found by scaling down Naval Gauss Rifles to sub-capital scale, and developing torpedo ammunition as replacements to nuclear munitions and sensor probes.

Gauss-Torpedo Ammunition
   These Torpedoes are hollow Gauss projectiles with variable payloads. The payload options include fusion warheads, guided perpetrators, or sensor/communication probes. These lighter ammunition types frees up a lot of tonnage aboard a vessel, allowing them to be more effective and travel farther.
   Rules: All Torpedo munitions have a +1 to-hit penalty. Guided Torpedoes use a precise kinetic penetrator, that is guided to a target by either a TAG or remote sensors. This torpedo is a favorite for precision orbital bombardment.
   Fusion Torpedoes contain a tactical fusion warhead which is set to detonate if the armed torpedo comes into contact with a solid object or any type of shield effect. However this also prevents any internal detonations in a target.
   The Probe Torpedo is an all-environment standard sensor-communication platform, as powerful as that of an ASF or 'Mech.
