The Hephaestus is the latest in a long line of Foundry Ships. These vessels assist in setting up bases throughout the Imperium. 
A have 500dt (5MCr) of a manufacturing module that can produce anything from base infrastructure to fighters and starship parts.  Use of the facility reduces the ship to Agility 0.
  • A lab is available for studying product construction,
  • Cargo is essentially one large 200dt bay,
  • The vessel can also do final assemblies on its upper forward deck,
  • The upper section is dedicated to the manufacturing process,
  • 200dt of fuel are stored in multi-purpose tanks,
  • 200dt of fuel are stored in collapsible tanks providing a additional cargo.

The Captain has a .2dt storage locker in his office.

It is not uncommon to see a mineral ship, and electronics ship with the foundry ship.
