The Ark Mechanicus

The Ark Mechanicus

The Ark Mechanicus class Explorator mothership Ratio is the flag ship of the Stenberg Forge fleet. It led the mission that colonized the system back in the Age of Exploration, and it is the single most ancient and most revered artifact known to the Priesthood of Stenberg.

It is frequently away from its home port, on missions of exploration, always leading a sizable squadron of lesser ships. During the first war on Stenberg, it was mapping the nearer stars of the Lorenz Abyssal, a vast starless void on the far end of the Thule subsector, as measured from the Astronomican. It made full speed back when news of the attack reached the fleet, and participated both in breaking the Imperial fleet blockade, and later in rooting out the last hold-out ground positions.

It was badly damaged during the second war, but was fully repaired as soon as the Armistice was signed.
