"The only way this thing could make me more happy is if it spat thunderbolts. Why doesn't it shoot thunder bolts?"
―Anonymous Naval Personnel


The Zeus-class Super Carrier is a monolithic warship, derived from the one off UNSC Infinity. Its successor in the ever escalating war with the Covenant remnants, the Zeus-class would become a symbol of the UNSC's power and might during these periods. Sharing many unique features with the Infinity, it would go on to become one of the most important classifications of vessels used by the UNSC.

History

The Zeus-class began as a larger classification of vessels directly modelled on the Infinity, to perform both military actions, such as fighting the Covenant or Insurrection, and civilian actions, such as exploration, scientific endeavour and diplomacy. However, after border skirmishes against the Covenant Remnant escalated, the initial block was cancelled before construction even began. The UNSC Infinity herself was taken into dry dock for the most extensive refit of her life. Following a significant reshuffle in the hierarchy of the UNSC Navy and Naval Intelligence, the dream of Infinity being used for exploration and diplomacy was dropped. Having the UNSC's most advance warship utilised for such small matters was found to be wasteful, as was many of the ships features. The large civilian complement and specialised biosphere and nature park were removed, and replaced with increased personnel and the biosphere itself replaced with a gun mantle to carry a secondary weapon. Its crew numbers were upped, increased weaponry, more lethal guns and the ship made use of leaps in automation.

A new line of warships based upon the Infinity was again authorised, but shared it's newest upgrades. These features would mark it as no longer sharing the Infinity name, and instead bore the name 'Zeus-class'. These ships, the first of which was completed in just five years, became the core of the UNSC fleets, sowing terror into the Covenant who so feared the implacable strength and resilience of the Infinity.

UNSC Comments

"At the battle of Azaria we got hit eight times by planetary defence guns. The shields held long enough for our bombers to decimate it and let our Marines in. How the hell is that even possible?"

"When the Remnant launched the surprise attack at Manheim shipyards they thought they catch one of our new super carriers being built and destroy it. It was already finished! After a brief gun and dog fight, the Covenant fleet left with most of their ships damaged and the rest destroyed or crippled."
