A.K.A. Partical Beam Triax
The Triax is a deadly weapon usually attached to a combat group of Mother Ships. These ships are primarily used to patrol convoy routes and other secure areas.
The Particle Beam Triax derives its name from the ship’s three particle beams, which are combined into a single, devastating pulse during the weapon’s ignition. The pulse can vaporize an entire small world, as evidenced by the destruction of one of Sol V’s many moons. The ship has a crew complement of 10, including pilot, co-pilot, two weapons officers, and six technicians. Power is generated by five hybrid fusion reactors, three of which alone are required to drive the beam. The speed of the Triax is 35-50% speed of light, and atmospheric flight is not possible.
