Normandy SR-2

The Normandy SR-2 is a starship that appears in 2185, serving as the "successor" to the SR-1. The ship is very similar to the Systems Alliance's SSV Normandy SR-1, having been based on the design layout of the original. The Normandy SR-2 has several key differences, the most significant being that it is almost twice the mass of the original. Cerberus also designed the ship with more crew-oriented comforts by including civilian-grade accommodations. The ship still retains the SSV Normandy SR-1's stealth characteristics. However, unlike the SR-1, the SR-2 cannot land on every planet—due to its increased mass—requiring shore parties to use a shuttle to get to a planet's surface. The new Normandy has four decks. The topmost deck of the ship is entirely comprised of the captain's quarters. It is located directly under the exterior pressure hull, earning the nickname "the loft" from the fitting yard workers. The second deck called “the command deck” is comprised of the ship's bridge, Combat Information Center (CIC), Research and Tech Labs, Armory (both standard weapons and unique prototypes are stored here), Briefing/Communications Room and main airlock. As with the layout of the entire ship, the SR-2's bridge and CIC mirror that of the SR-1 except wider and longer in scale. The third deck “crew deck” of the ship is where the crew spends most of their downtime. It includes Executive Officer's Offices, crew quarters, bathrooms, life support control, a mess-hall and the AI core. EDI's Core is located at the rear of the medical bay. The SR-2, unlike the SR-1, is also designed with a Main Battery room located forward of the Cryogenic Pods. The lowest deck is the hangar, where the Kodiak shuttle is stored, as well as a space for the M-44 Hammerhead tank. EDI, which stands for Enhanced Defense Intelligence, is the AI of the Normandy SR-2. EDI functions as the electronic warfare defense for the Normandy and because of the potential danger of a rogue AI, she has been given behavioral blocks and can't interface with the ship's systems.

IES (internal emission sink) - The Normandy can go to 'silent running' for around up to 3 hours, or drift passively through a system for days before having to vent and give away her position. When trying to detect the Normandy on a passive or active scan when she is on silent run add +20 to difficulty.
Fusion Plant Power for the Normandy's drive core and electrical systems is provided by a nuclear fusion plant. H-fuel cells provide auxiliary power in case the main reactor is shut down. If the ship is hit and about to lose its power the backup kicks in.


  1. Would you be able to make the different Dreadnoughts?

    Also stats for the lifeships, armed. They held their own against the 30 something while only having 3 because their lifeships are so big, I think.

    But yeah, stuff like that.

    1. In the next version there will be arkships (like purgatory),frigates and weapons used in space combat. I'm very cautious about introducing bigger capital ships, because players shouldn't have access to such large vessels. I'm having difficulties with the smaller frigates. I don't know if this system even could support large space battles like the battle of citadel or earth.

  2. The thing is, while they may not "own" one such ship. Aspiring to be the pilot of one should not be.. Impossible(Military Service, Quarian duty, huge frigate company ect. ect. ect.). And in such a scenario, rules would have to exist for the event of combat.

    By the way, I wish to express my gratitude to you for continuing this project.

    1. I rather would advise a GM to invent something special for such occasion, but I get where Youa are coming from. I'll try to figure something out and drop some stats for the bigger warships. Although I must admit, I don know when it will happen.

    2. That would be greatly appriciated.
