The Warp Fleet
Rule the Waves, Ride the Warp
Over the Warp and O'er the Waves, 'Cross Contours, Storms, and Worlds Away, 12 Worlds command and we'll obey Over the Warp and far away.The Warp Fleet, this powerful force, is a Fleet of the United Commonwealth Navy, the largest such command and with complete control over all UCN vessels that sail across the Warp. Battleships by the dozen, cruisers and destroyers by the score, it is, as it has been for a hundred years, the most mighty armada to ever rule the Warp, and its sailors and admirals, steeped in traditions dating a century yet always at the cutting edge of the 12 Worlds, intend to keep it that way.
Rites through Passage
Few institutions take such deep stock in their traditions as the Armed Services, and the Warp Fleet is more traditional than most. From the names endowed upon its vessels to the cut and colours of its uniforms, an attitude of deep, unwavering loyalty, dedication to a long and storied past, and lifelong service are instilled strongly in the sailors who make their careers among the lords of the Warp.
The Ocean ThronePerched atop a chalky white cliff on the tropical island of Pulau Yanauh, and overlooking a vast open bay littered with row upon row of titanic vessels, the 5 story neoclassical palace that houses the Headquarters of the Flag Officer Commanding, Warp Fleet presides above all before it. Within its twisted confines and cluttered rooms, lives, breathes, and sleeps the bureaucratic machine that drives the Fleet in its daily life. Once the overseas holiday palace of a wealthy slave trading tycoon before the Corps of Marines put it to siege and and a Battleship threatened to reduce it to a faint memory, the vast complex would first serve as a great center for the fight against its former cause, when in 55 A.S. it was turned into the new headquarters for the United Commonwealth's anti slavery and anti piracy efforts on that World.
In its century of violent existence, and across the hundreds of battles it has fought amidst the storms of shell, shot and the Warp, a great many of the vessels that have served in its order of battle have gained legendary, near mythical stories and reputations around them.
