Nupetiet-Basgalitz-class Fleet Command Battleship

The Nupetiet-Basgalitz-class Zentraedi battleship was assumed to be the predecessor to Nupetiet-T’zanaltz Fleet Command Ship, which was in turn the predecessor to the current Nupetiet Vergnitzs-class Fleet Command Battleship. It is thought that the class was first built in the early days of the Masters’ use of the Zentraedi, sometime in the early fifteenth century. The ship fell out of service sometime in the seventeenth century, having been replaced by both the Nupetiet-T’zanaltz-class and the Nupetiet Vergnitzs-class Command Battleships. Due to superficial similarities to the two succeeding classes of ships, it is assumed that it was also designed and built by the Worquli-Quatafilla 755,819th Zentraedi Fully-Automated Armory Planet. Very few Nupetiet-Basgalitz-class ships are believed to have been built before the class was replaced. Estimates are in the range of 900 ships. Several examples have been found mothballed in various shipyards across the former Tirolian Mercantile Empire. None have been observed in operational use.
