OOC Information


The USN Otto von Bismarck was a Reno-class Carrier that served with the United States Navy under the command of Fleet Admiral Hector von Brown during both the First and Second Wars of Continuation. The ship acted as flagship during the defense of Mars on June 21, 2401, and later lead the counterattack to the lost moon of Ganymede and eventually participated in both the First and Second Battles of Vespene/PX-67. During the first occasion, the Otto von Bismarck was heavily damaged and rendered inoperable, a result of the Unity's nuclear detonation on the planet's surface. However, during the Seven Dark Hours afterward, the ship's repair team managed to repair the communications network far enough to ask for assistance, where the relatively unharmed cruiser USN Harbinger docked and proceded with emergency repairs. When the survivors of the battle were rounded up, the Otto von Bismarck left with the rest of the 4th and 6th Fleets on limited reactor power. The ship was later quickly patched up in time to again lead the Second Battle of Vespene a little over a month later.

The Otto von Bismarck, along with the USN Harbinger, was one of the most famous warships in the UEG because of it's astonishing achievements and enduring legacy of hope against the terribly overwhelming military of the Unity.

The Otto von Bismarck was laid down on December 14, 2394, the same month that Admiral von Brown transferred to the United States Navy, was completed on June 7, 2395 and underwent a three-month trial period* until finally being commissioned nearly a year after construction began, on September 23, 2395.

  • All warships frigate class and above must endure two-month long trials in order to finally be commissioned into the USN. However, Carriers require a three-month long trial period, in their case having to hone the skill of launching and micro-managing the single ships more effectively than other craft in the fleet.
