Linchpin

True to its name, the Linchpin class ship is central to any warfare as a heavy support vessel specifically designed by Civilian Guild. The ship itself features strong shielding and armour but little in the way of customisation as it only has two ports. Instead the bulk of the Linchpin is comprised as a large power grid. The grid allows the ship to not only recharge its own shields in combat and specific targets but also recharge every friendly ships shields by a large amount making it a superb support craft in large battles and when paired with the Pegasus class vessel. To ensure it can reach engagements it also features the ability to overload its engine to travel further in a single bound.
