SSV Normandy SR-1

The SSV Normandy SR-1 (Systems Alliance Space Vehicle Stealth Reconnaissance 1) was a Systems Alliance starship. She is a prototype "deep scout" frigate, first of the eponymous Normandy class, co-developed by the Alliance and the Turian Hierarchy with the sponsorship of the Citadel Council. She is optimized for solo reconnaissance missions deep within unstable regions, using
state-of-the-art stealth technology powered by an experimental drive core. Commissioned in 2183, the Normandy was initially captained by David Anderson, however, she was handed over to Commander Shepard when the commander became the first human Spectre, serving as Shepard's main source of transportation and base of operations. The Normandy is named after the Battle of Normandy in 1944, a pivotal battle of the Second World War. The Normandy is built on three main decks. Command Deck contains the bridge in the bow, the airlock, the CIC containing the galaxy map, and the comm-room towards the stern. The comm room also serves as a conference room for debriefing after missions. The Combat Information Center (CIC) of the Normandy is unusual. Alliance ships usually place commanding officers in the middle of the room, to facilitate communication with subordinates, but the CO's station in the Normandy's CIC is at the back. This is because the Normandy has a turian design and their commanders prefer to look over their subordinates rather than be in the midst of them; the engineers wanted to observe how well it functioned within the human command structure. When necessary, the Normandy's officers can utilize unique suit radios to communicate with the ship's operators. The cockpit area is equipped with an internal kinetic barrier, designed to protect the pilot from exposure to vacuum if air pressure is lost in the CIC.
The second deck, composed primarily of living quarters, may be reached by descending one of the two stairwells located on either side of the CIC. This is the location of Normandy's habitation deck containing the mess, crew sleeper pods, the captain's private cabin and office, escape pod hatches, and the medical room. Lab and storage room at the back.
Engineering and Storage is on the third deck. An elevator located in the quarters can be used to descend to the engineering and storage sections of the Normandy. The M35 Mako is stored on this level. Opposite the garage, a door leads to the engineering section proper containing the Normandy's drive core.

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.
