They possess the forms of slaves, not gifted with any rare strength or advantage, but have the will of any race we have yet encountered. One would think with enough worlds ravaged, enough men killed, enough starship destroyed, that they would accept oblivion. But instead, these humans show the same character that any of the Gigaquadrant's great races show in the face of certain death. They do not bow down to the inevitability, they defy it with a rage that is greater than the storms fury. Nowhere does this characteristic manifest itself more than in their navy, the personification of everything special about a race so average.

- Archon Wolframicht Stahl

The Allied Terran Republic fields a vast military that ranks as one of the strongest in the Milky Way Galaxy, being instrumental in the fight against the Xhodocto during the War of Ages, the Grox Empire during the New Grox Wars and the Drakodominatus Tyranny during the Dominatus War. Though associated members retain sovereignty over their own militaries, the Republic's directly controlled military is coordinated by a Board of Admirals, an organisation similar in function to the political Council. Under the command of this board, the Republic fields devastating warships fielded from all of its unified members, cementing the Republic's place as a Plazithian, and Gigaquadrantic, superpower. Republic ships utilise the "ATS" (Allied Terran Ship) prefix.

History[edit | edit source]

The Terran Republic arrives during the Amphryssos Campaign.

Formed in response to the devastating War of Ages, the initial fleets of the Terran Republic were a mishmash of ships pooled together by the early member states in a desperate attempt to curb The Congregation. However, as time went on joint projects led to the evolution of the Terran navy with the development of unique ship designs eventually outnumbering the disparate vessels used earlier in the conflict. These ships, and the brave officers who commanded them, were thrust into the conflict zones, serving the Republic with honour and conviction. After the conflict ended, the Republic continued to advance and design powerful new ships augmented with technology that came with Republic membership in The Civilisation. By the time the next century dawned, the Terran Republic had proven itself in key battles during conflicts like the New Grox Wars and the Dominatus War and when the next century began, it found itself fighting to defend Republic interests in new conflicts such as the New Cyrandia Wars and the Neraida Invasion.

  • Class: F-101 Trident
  • Type: Fighter
  • Armament:
Heavy laser cannons
Transphasic torpedoes
Others
The F-101 Trident is the primary strike fighter serving the navy of the Allied Terran Republic. Equipped with a hyperdrive, the Trident can launch attacks on enemy systems without the need for a carrier, though they are often found in the hangar decks of large vessels such as the Eriú-class, which can launch as many as ninety fighters during an engagement. Equipped with highly advanced weaponry and non-phasic shielding, the Trident is a devastating enemy to both fellow fighters and large capital ships vulnerable to attack. F-101 Trident.png

Frigates[edit | edit source]

Astraeus-class Frigate
Astraeus-class Frigate.png Specifications:
  • Class: Astraeus-class
  • Type: Frigate
  • Size: 660 metres
  • Armament:
Turbolasers
Hypermatter torpedoes
Anti-proton weaponry
The Astraeus-class Frigate are seen by many as being smaller versions of the larger Jové-class and serve similar functions and serve similar functions though on a reduced scale. A common frigate designed for various purposes, many Astraeus' were involved in tactical situations with remaining Grox forces in the Milky Way after the New Grox Wars, though they also serve extensively in other conflicts befalling the Republic.

  • Type: Battlecruiser
  • Size: 2.1 kilometres
  • Armament:
Turbolasers
Hypermatter torpedoes
Anti-proton weaponry
The Arcadia-class battlecruiser is an advanced warship used by the Allied Terran Republic. Commissioned in 2816, the Arcadia-class was designed to replace the Jové-class cruiser developed in the 2790s. The most common vessel in the Terran Navy, Arcadia-class vessels are common sights in space lanes patrolled by the Pax Infintus Armada, providing cover fire for more powerful warships.

HumanRepublicBestride.png Specifications:
  • Class: Bestride-class
  • Type: Battlecruiser
  • Size: 1.5 kilometres
  • Armament:
Turbolasers
Hypermatter torpedoes
Anti-proton weaponry
The Bestride-class Battlecruisers are the heavy hitters of the Republic fleet, being designed with very thick hulls to survive multiple direct hits. Though an aging design by the dawn of the new century the Bestride-class are quickly proving that even old designs can fracture worlds into unrecognisable shapes. 500856275335.png
Everest-class carrier/destroyer
EverestClass.png Specifications:
Turbolasers
Hypermatter torpedoes
Anti-proton weaponry
The Everest-class carrier/destroyer is an advanced warship used by the Allied Terran Republic. Commissioned in 2806, the Everest-class effectively replaces the older Jové and Eriú-classes developed in the 2790s. Armed with advanced weaponry and protected with non-phasic shielding, the Everest-class is quickly becoming the core of modern Terran fleets. The lead ship of the class, the ATS Everest is currently under the command of Admiral Juliana Reynolds, serving as the flagship of Terran forces in the Cyrannus Galaxy. Everest-class carrier.png
Jove-class Destroyer
JoveClass.png Specifications:
  • Class: Jove-class
  • Type: Destroyer
  • Size: 1.9 kilometres
  • Armament:
Turbolasers
Hypermatter torpedoes
Anti-proton weaponry
Named after the Italian mythological god of the sky, the Jove-class Destroyer is deployed to protect Republic interests in the darkness of space. Designed by the same manufacturers who built the larger Eriú-class Dreadnought, the Jove-class are some of the most advanced ships in the Republic fleet with their design being heavily influenced by the Republic's membership in the The Civilisation.

Ragnorok-class Super Heavy Destroyer
RagnarokClass.png Specifications:
  • Class: Ragnorok-class
  • Type: Super Heavy Destroyer
  • Size: 2.3 kilometres
  • Armament:
Turbolasers
Hypermatter torpedoes
Anti-proton weaponry
Others
A dazzling array of weapons and shields dot the superstructure of this colossal instrument of war, developed soon after the Neraida Invasion forced the Terrans to rethink their peaceful approach to many of the universe's other more aggressive races. The shields of the Ragnorok-class can withstand several megaton-scale assaults without failing and though it is shorter than the Dreadnoughts of the Navy, it nonetheless packs an arguably heavier punch for a ship of its size. In addition to providing a fleet with a heavy-hitting addition, the Ragnorok-class is also well equipped for fleet command roles and are thus often captained by high ranking admirals.

Dreadnoughts[edit | edit source]

Eriú-class Dreadnought
ÉriuClass.png Specifications:
  • Class: Eriú-class
  • Type: Dreadnought
  • Size: 2.5 kilometres
  • Armament:
Turbolasers
Hypermatter torpedoes
Anti-proton weaponry
Named after the mythical goddess of Ireland, the Ériu-class Dreadnought was the pride and joy of the European Starfleet before it became absorbed into the Human Republic. An elegant design that has seen service throughout the Gigaquadrant, the Eriú-class have even gained the appreciation of the notoriously fussy Draconis and Libertus. The Eriú-class, along with the Sentinel-class are considered some of the strongest ships currently in the Republic's arsenal. Ériu-class Dreadnought.png
Harsiesis-class Dreadnought

  • Class: Harsiesis-class
  • Type: Super dreadnought
  • Size: 8.1 kilometres
  • Armament:
Turbolasers
Hypermatter torpedoes
Experimental gamma ray burster cannon
Currently the largest and most advanced warship in the Terran Navy, the Harsiesis-class is designed to be the heavy hitters of the navy ever since their introduction into active service after the cataclysmic Battle of Venetia, during which a large portion of the Terran fleet in Cyrannus was destroyed by the Bisistar Domain. Equipped with the very latest in space warfare technology thanks to trade agreements with advanced powers such as The Civilisation and the New Cyrannian Republic, the Harsiesis-class is also equipped with an experimental superweapon known as the gamma ray burster cannon capable of collapsing stars and utilising the resulting hypernova to destroy a seemingly unstoppable enemy.

Quotes[edit | edit source]

It was quite an honour to fight alongside the brave officers of the Terran Republic during the Battle of Amphryssos, during which they earned much respect from the people of the Republic.
