Technical and Historical Notes

The Bishop class (NUNS designation) was a mobile fortress inhabited by the alien Vajra. Although characterized by humans as a “fortress,” the Bishop class was actually a living organism that could survive in the vacuum of space. This massive fortress was approximately 10-20 kilometers long and was powered by fold quartz. It was covered in multiple layers of bio-energy conversion armor and was capable of super long-range bio-folds. The Bishop served as a nest for a Queen and was defended by up to six bio-heavy quantum beam guns. It could also transport large numbers of Heavy Soldiers and Mobile Soldiers.
