The U.S.S. Marduk is a prototype pocket carrier under the command of Captain Bronok Zell. It serves as flagship of the Marduk Carrier Battle Group, commanded by Admiral Amnell Kree.

The Marduk was created by StarSwordC for the Foundry.

Background[edit | edit source]

The U.S.S. Marduk is named for the the ancient Mesopotamian deity Marduk.

The Marduk was in preproduction in 2400. Then-Rear Admiral Amnell Kree participated in its design in her capacity as chief of the Advanced Tactics Research Office at Starfleet Headquarters. The Marduk is based on the Prometheus-class chassis, but features a fighter bay instead of Multi-Vector Assault Mode. The hangar is partially accommodated by a bulkier aft hull and wider-spread nacelles.

The Marduk was intended to be the lead ship of a new class of light carrier for surgical strikes, the Marduk-class fast attack carrier. However, budget cuts led to the project's cancellation.

In 2408 Bronok Zell was assigned as the captain, and the Marduk was made the flagship of a carrier battle group under Admiral Kree.

Costume Construction[edit | edit source]

The Marduk uses the saucer and nacelles of a Prometheus-class Multi-Vector Advanced Escort, but the hull and pylons of a Phoenix-class.
