Technologies and Combat CharacteristicsEdit
Combining the carrying capabilities of Carriers with the firepower, durability and defensive capabilities of contemporary battleships of it's time, the first series of Island Class Vessles were described as area domination ships, capable of stopping hostile operations in key locations by alone for an undetermined amount of time.
Vesseles of this class held semi- self sufficient capabilities, thanks to onboard factories and food manufacturing plants.
Although these ships were not built with a stealth composition as later generation of Island Classes and other UCR Vessles, they did lay down the basis of Stealth Warships by implementing sohpisticated ECM Systems, making the ships virtually invisible on long range scanners and radar.

In 2455, the UCR Navy issued an order for a class of large, warships capable of performing the roles of aircraft carrier, battleship, and troop transportation, with powerful armaments and high defense statistics that grants the new class of ships the ability to engage in prolonged combat against a numerically superior enemy with just a handful of ships.
Two companies, North Star Heavy Engineering and Helix Yards were offered the contract to build the new class of ship if their design met the requirements of the Navy.
By 2456, North Star's design, made by Lead Chief of Engineering Mac Ross and his team, had won the military contract for constructing the new class of vessels. An order of 12 Island Class Mk.Is was put in.
In 2457, the first three hulls were laid down, and construction began on the first three vessels. In 2459, two more hauls were laid down. in 2469, the last seven hulls were laid up and in the following year, the first three Island Class Battlships, Endevor, Enterprise, and Genesis, were completed. They were joined by sister ships Cheriton, and Chelsam the following year. The last seven ships, Dauntless, Auliana, Clara, Ilston, Invictus, Virgaro, and Black Knight were completed three years later.
