Return of the King
The Orion Class vessel
The Orion is the class vessel of the Orion Class Star Clippers. Laid down so long ago that even the record of it has been lost, this vessel is loaded with ancient tech. All other examples of this vessel are modified versions compared to this venerable lady. For her entire existance, she has existed as a ship in the fleet of House Rhylan, a massive and venerable Rogue Trader Dynasty with assets across the galaxy, and a staunch ally, sometimes friendly rival of Blackthorne. It is said that Osiris Rhylan is nearly as old as Blackthorne is proported to be. What is known for sure is that Captain Frey Rhylan, a scion of the house, and favored by most of the Elders of the Dynasty to inherit the warrant from his god knows how removed grandfather, is the master of the Orion. Rhylan was recently notified he will be awarded a warrant and title of Rogue Trader in his own right, next Emperor’s Birthday. While he waits that time, he continues to serve his “grandfather’s” interests. In doing so he could have had any ship in the fleet, and he chose this vessel.
