    Mobile Orbital Mining Facility

    LMS_Explorer.png

    The Mobile Orbital Mining Facility class was commissioned to allow long-range long-duration mining operations on far-away planets, and is primarily used by the Rock Raiders United company. It is nearly self-sufficient, only requiring resupply runs every eight years, having the capacity to hold up to three thousand personnel.

    Layout

    The bridge is located in a raised platform roughly three quarters the length of the ship back from the bow, and almost directly ahead of the engines. It makes up about a quarter of the ship's overall height, being 74 metres tall. The tower contains the primary controls for the ship, including those for navigation, engineering, communication and life support. It also houses an observation deck at the top, equipped with both a viewing window and wide-screen display monitors.

    Below the bridge are several decks housing the living quarters, recreation zones, medical bay, supply lockers, and engineering deck. The lowermost deck is the location of the ship's teleportation rig, allowing rapid transport of supplies, personnel, and other equipment to and from a nearby planet's surface.

    The forward lower three quarters of the ship are collosal storage bays for the carrying of raw ores, as well as basic refinery systems and fabricators that allow the ship to replace lost equipment from it's stored materials if the need arises. It is loaded directly from the teleportation rig, and the entire process is automated with no need for human intervention or endangerment.

    The primary batteries and shield projectors are located to the fore and sides of the vessel, composed of large pylons and projectors. In the event of an emergency, they can be jettisoned to prevent a potential overload from damaging the ship itself. The very forwards-most portion of the ship also holds a collection of advanced sensor and communication gear, capable of scanning an entire system in minutes and tuned to detect ore composition and viable energy sources.
