The Galactic Imperium’s expansionist doctrines are evident in the Vindex class frigate. The ship is fast, powerful on the offense, and capable of sustained engagement — qualities prized by both admirals and captains, alike. In large-scale battles, Imperial fleets often utilize the Vindex for screening and flanking maneuvers.

With six sections, the Vindex is typically fitted with weapons stations and ammunition storage. Hard points are primarily dedicated to weapon placements but electronic counter-measures, such as shields, are not unknown. The composite armors common to Imperium ships ensure the survivability of these systems and keep the Vindex in battle.

Vindex frigates are often found patrolling Imperial systems, but their usefulness extends well beyond routine defense. Their powerful engines are useful in fleet tactics when superior transit speeds are advantageous. The basic design is not known for maneuverability, but upgrades easily improve the ship’s performance in this area.

The strength and stability of the Vindex also allows it to be used in a variety of other roles. Vindex frigates perform well in science and survey missions, as transports and cargo haulers, and as resource extraction platforms. With ample room on board, Vindex frigates permit of a wide variety of configurations.

Decommissioned Vindexs are commonly available and the design is popular with lone-wolf spacers. In private commerce, the resilience, speed, and flexibility of the design make it a popular choice throughout the Imperium and beyond.

At the Starwerx

The starwerx is the busiest area of any colony, orbital station, or capital ship. The flight decks and repair facilities constantly see activity. At any given moment, a variety of spacecraft are coming, going, in repair, or being upgraded. Should you require the services of a spacer or tech, you will find them at the Starwerx.

“At the Starwerx” gives readers insight into what goes on at the Starwerx and provides an overview of the spacecraft found in the Starjump video game.
