TACFLEET Notes

The SPECTRE-class Battlecruiser is a very dangerous ship. It is not only armed with an impressive array of weapons, but also has decent maneuverability and defensive systems.

First seen at SBOG, these ships proved themselves to be capable opponents in combat, and about the slight inferior of an AGAMEMNON-class battlecruiser. What is most frightening is that the Dominion reportedly has between 200 and 300 of these craft.

As with the LICH, the ships have all fields of fire covered, but leave the aft portion of the ship to be relatively undergunned when compared with the forward, port, and starboard arcs. Yet, these craft are certainly not unarmed in the rear. Nevertheless, as with the LICH-class BB, commanders in combat with these vessels are encouraged to stay astern of the SPECTRE.

The SPECTRE mounts the full complement of Dominion weaponry, including the fierce plasma cannon. While the maximum power output of this beam is roughly 75% of that of the phaser cannon on an AGAMEMNON, it seems to have a slightly greater firing rate, and, like the AGAMEMNON, a dedicated power system.

In addition to the standard offensive weaponry, the SPECTRE carries 3 tanks and an assortment of biological weapons. Further, the boarding craft used to capture or sabotage enemy ships can easily serve as air superiority fighters, as each of these shuttles are armed.

The SPECTREs will be seen at times in a LICH-class battleship's standard screen, but will also serve independently of these craft, in flagship positions of their own. In these cases, there will be a consort of WRAITH, PHANTOM, and ZOMBIE-class vessels accompanying the SPECTRE. Under only the rarest circumstances will these ships be found alone.

It is rumored that the SPECTRE was developed to help combat the Borg, as ships smaller and more maneuverable than the LICH, but still with impressive firepower were needed to supplement the attacks.

SPECTRE-class BCs are found in all areas of the Dominion, and are involved in missions including blockades, planetary bombardments, patrols, coordinated military maneuvers, and shows-of-force.
