The Aegis Javelin-class Destroyer is here! Designed for use by the UEE military (and featured prominently in Squadron 42) the Javelin is a massive, modular capital ship that can be appropriated for entrepreneurial use. With a detailed interior, plenty of modular room options and a high crew capacity, the Javelin is a ship intended for group play.
In the “real world,” the Javelin is well on its way through the development pipeline! Designed by David Hobbins, the Javelin has since been implemented by the team at Foundry 42 for the opening of the Squadron 42 single-player campaign. The ship features a total of five decks, each with a variety of crew positions and areas to explore and utilize.
PLEASE note before buying that the Javelin is not a free ride to interstellar domination. While it’s the largest ship we have made available to backers, it’s actually the smallest UEE ship-of-the-line. Additionally, Javelins sold to players are “used” by the UEE. They are surplus ships with their military weapons removed. Purchasing a Javelin means a new quest for your Org or team as you rearm and upgrade it for your needs! The ship will also be available in the finished game for players who wish to earn it.
200 Javelins were made available during the November 28th, 2014 sale for $2,500 each. The proceeds from those ships went towards allowing Cloud Imperium Games Corporation to sell 5,000 Aurora starter packages for new players.
The Javelin destroyer was mentioned during the reveal of the $41 million stretch goal.
