Castores

A Foundation class heavy cruiser, the Castores is a long endurance survey ship leased by Expert Technologies with a Templar command crew officially following up on first-pass charts plotted by smaller Discovery class ships. The Castores is a typical sample of the Foundation type: equipped with high resolution sensors, an optionally pressurized flight deck, low gravity hydroponics bays, a rocket assisted rotating section, cruise missiles and a number of small support craft, she can comfortably support a modest crew for as long as they can stand each other.
