The Genesis is a heavily-armed PvP/Support Battleship.

Description

The Genesis is a balanced Battleship with fair mobility and powerful weapons, making it great in combat with ships of its class. The only notable blindspot the Genesis has is at the rear. The ship itself is rather long with turrets placed along the top and bottom. Team-colored plating covers much of the top side, with various darker grey/black parts accenting the brighter colors.

Interior

The interior of the Genesis is a simple room with a blue panel sitting in front of the Pilot's seat.

Advantages

  • Great beginner Battleship.
  • Variety of powerful Turrets give it good firepower.
  • Good turn speed for a Battleship.
  • Has easily redeemable blind spots, making it difficult to get an edge against it in battle.
  • Can take on a variety of ships, from fast and agile Cruisers to some weak or susceptible Dreadnoughts.
  • Balanced shield/hull damage, although slightly more shield.

Disadvantages

  • Relatively low top speed compared to other Battleships.
  • Vulnerable backside.
  • Somewhat weak against Fighters.
  • Falls to larger, more powerful ships such Dreadnoughts.
  • Weak explosion damage for a Battleship.
  • Broadside spinals can be hard to hit, unless you're experienced.

Strategy

  • One of the best Battleships for Pirating, as its turret firepower can destroy Ships before they can escape.
  • Use multiple Genesis' in a fleet to supply overwhelming turret firepower, even against Dreadnoughts.
  • If possible, make use of the Spinal weapons, as they are very powerful and can do a lot of Shield damage quickly.
  • Front-facing or broadside-facing angles may be most effective to maximize turret lines of sight.

Version History

  • Was unsuspended in version ???
  • Received two broadside Spinals in .65a5?

Trivia

  • It used to be very weak with only one Heavy Laser, but after the Battleship rebalances in .???, the Genesis became a deadly adversary not to be underestimated.
  • Before the temporary suspension of this ship, it caused massive amounts of lag while spawned in.
  • The Genesis was once one of the most widely used Battleships in Galaxy, and is again very common in fleet battles in multiple servers.
  • One of its models was shared with the Behemoth, a Dreadnought that plays a PvP/Support role like the Genesis
  • Due to its old model being drawn from the Plagued Warship, the ship was nicknamed the "Unplagued Warship" by players.
  • Used to have a frontal teleporter, which allowed you to jump-despawn easily, but that was removed in the current remodel.
  • Lost almost 2000 total health when it was nerfed, in addition to very powerful turrets. This caused many players to move towards other meta ships, although the Genesis is still a very formidable ship.
  • The current Katana model is the Genesis's old model.
