From Onno Meyer:

A secure Imperial Navy briefing room. A rear admiral walks to a lectern while two armed marines close the doors. The audience, civilians and a few reserve officers, looks ill at ease at this display of firepower.

"Good morning, ladies and gentlemen!
First, I want to thank all of you that you could find the time to attend this conference. For the record, the conference and all proceedings are classified most secret. You have all been briefed what this means.

We invited you for a fresh look at the data which we have collected on the new Darrian cruisers. Now where are the ... ah, yes ... you'll have to sign for the folders. Just the raw data, we don't want you biased by the results of our own analyst. This is supposed to be a second opinion.

Perhaps we should start with a brainstorm. Take a few minutes to read the documents and then write a short estimate of their capabilities."

Contest 24 calls on you to write an Imperial intelligence estimate of a Darrian Barekdoldin-class cruiser. Facts:

* It can be assumed that the technology level exceeds that of the current Imperial Navy and it may reach the old pre-Maghiz Darrian levels. That would make it classic TL16 or GTL13.
* Not being TL16/GTL13, the Imperium has no clear idea what this TL means. If you want to add higher-TL systems, who is to call you wrong. (Read: go higher if that is necessary for a good story/design. Prepare for hard questions from the crowd.)
* The Darrians decided to call the class a cruiser.
* Barekdoldins wiped out a Swordic base with pinpoint ortillery fire.

Mail your entries by Monday, May 10th, to me:

I will acknowledge each ship within one or two days. If you get no reply, try again or ask on the board what happened. If there are no delays, the ships will be posted on the 11th.
