Crusader class Eos Consortium Corvette: (Also known OOC as the 'Jihad wagon')
Overview: The Pilgrim class is not 'technically' a corvette. It is a suicide weapon more than anything else. Piloted by one of the faithful who have made a transgression and must atone or by those who ritually devote their own lives to the greater cause of Eos they intermesh with the vessels VI systems and then are deployed throughout a battle. Often jumping in close before ramming an enemy ship the Pilgrim is filled with an overtaxed Muon Catalysed Cold fusion reactor, not a singularity core which is deemed too valuable to use on such a ship. When the Pilgrim has rammed the enemy vessel it purges its core, directing an overload of power which destroys the vessel but also channels the power through the kinetic wave emitters. Essentially hitting with the force of a Eos dreadnought in power these waves completely tear apart the targeted ship.
Armament: The Pilgrim has no self defence armament and has a one use overtaxed and overdrived Kinetic wave generator ready to detonate when it has rammed the enemy ship.
Defences: The Pilgrim class mounts a super elastic metallic-crystalline hull which while not giving much defence at all vs solid projectiles is able to give some defence vs energy weapons and even self-repair at a very, very slow rate. Along with this the Pilgrim class shield generators project basic energy shields able to protect the ship from stellar hazards however these same projectors also co project the main kinetic weapon which sort of acts like an aggressive shield however if either goes down additional projectors can be activated.
Power plant: powering the Pilgrim is an Eosian Muon catalysed cold fusion reactor, a throwback to before they managed to successfully create Singularity cores. This reactor fuses atoms together with the help of muons which have a x64 higher capacity to bond than standard atoms. These cores while not as powerful as a Singularity core are more than capable of powering the ship and with the Pilgrims being on the verge of overloading it can power the ship for such a time needed until its final run.
Electronic capabilities: The Pilgrim class has an integrated VI system which works alongside the crew to help them carry out tasks and process data, an Eos Flagellant may integrate into the VI system to get a personal and real-time update on all battlefield instances. As well as this Eos sensor systems are some of the best in the galaxy, using the very fabric of reality the Consortium VI can identify enemy vessels ‘indents’ as anything in the universe interacts as an indent in some way. Even phase or dimensional stealth requires some sort of tie to the original dimension or universe so they can rematerialize and the sensor system can identify these methods too.
Stealth: The Consortium doesn’t believe in stealth and has no stealth systems as it is forbidden in their holy edict.
Crew: The Pilgrim only has capacity for one crew, the attoner who will pilot this craft to salvation in Eos eyes.
Attack craft: The Pilgrim mounts no hangar bays.
Speed and engines: The Pilgrim mounts a Gravimetric drive for in system travel at sublight speeds as well as a Consortium Desync FTL drive. Which works by ‘desnycing’ the ship out of the Universe, this causes relativity problems and causes physics to instantly force the ship back into sync with reality however the drive works in such a way that it can manipulate where the ship comes back out into a desired location. However these drives are not without risk. Ships can jump out and never come back, lost forever outside reality, or they can resync somewhere else completely or off mark sometimes jumping into enemy ships destroying both. And so it is far from infallible.
