Hi troops, things have been very busy lately as we’ve been gearing up with some shiny new updates for the school year, and we’re long overdue for an update about the IKS Artemis Charger’s construction in Valencia, Venezuela. The shipyard has been humming with activity as everyone has worked around the clock to get the ship prepped for launch.
Here we see the major bulkheads in place, as of July earlier this year. We’ve come a long way since then.
The power conduits have been laid, and here’s the arc reactor terminal:
The Artemis Charger is powered by a Type XIV hyperdrive, which—naturally—throws off a lot of heat, so an entire bank of coolant systems has been installed to keep it running at peak efficiency.
Some of the most talented craftsmen in the quadrant have been called in to assist with the construction.
Here we see one of them working on the crew console panels, which will reside on the main bridge.
The bridge will have many mobile stations, allowing for easy reconfiguration based on the needs of the mission.
And this… well, this is classified. Pretend you didn’t see it.
The bulkheads have all been fused into place, and the gravity generators have been installed in the floors. Here we see some of the AV equipment going into the ceiling.
The Artemis Charger has its maiden voyage scheduled for October 5th. We’re all anxiously awaiting the big day!
