The Athena was intended as the long-term replacement for the aging fleet of Resolute-class cruisers. A single Athena is capable of performing the duties of a squadron of smaller vessels. It has sufficient speed, sensor range, hyperdrive range, fighter capacity and armament to patrol an entire system single-handed. 40 units were completed for the Imperial Terran Navy prior to the loss of Chryse to Terran rebels in 3412; the construction site in orbit then began building Athenas for the rebels and the Commonwealth. 35 units were constructed under contract by the JK Consortium for the SAF in 3463; these ships would become part of the UCN when the Starfarers Alliance joined the Commonwealth in 3478. By the start of the Galactic War, the Athena had effectively replaced the Resolute as the backbone of the UCN.
niiice! i really like the shape.. its sleek (reminds me of the highliner II from the game "mankind"). the uneven colors make it look like a ship that has travelled a lot ... some may not like it but i do! :) your ships are good you should take pictures of them in front of a white or black background ;) keep building
