The G.F.S. Olympus is an Olympus-Class Battleship, a Federation capital ship designed to use an onboard Aurora Unit, an organic supercomputer. The commanding officer of the ship is Fleet Admiral Castor Dane. Battleships of this class have smaller crews than most ships of a similar size due to the presence of the Aurora Unit. The space saved in crew support is used for more battle systems. The enormous vessel is powered by Fuel Gel, making the scarce commodity of extreme value to the Federation military.[1]

Etymology

Like most Federation vessels, the G.F.S. Olympus was named after a prominent figure in ancient Earth mythology. In ancient Greece, Mount Olympus was home of the principal deities of the Greek pantheon.
