   Comments: The Kokirrak class dreadnaught is one of the more common classes of capital ships in service in the Spinward Marches; a total of four BatRons of this type serve on permanent station, with harbor assignments at Rhylanor, Regina, Jewell, and Mora. Generally, one squadron of Kokirraks is dispersed into independant ships with ancilliary escorts. On patrol, the ships combine training operations with routine patrols and reaction operations.
    The Kokirrak is a prefered ship for flagship operations due to its extensive admiral's quarters, which include command and communications equipment, as well as entertainment chambers. The ship is capable of controlling a large fleet engagement within a system, as well as holding its own in battle; the combination of fleet controller and line-of-battle ship makes it an asset in nearly any space combat situation.
    This class of dreadnaught, when originally designed and constructed, mounted black globe force field generators. Over the years, various ships have suffered black globe generator failures, and the devices have not been replaced. When encountered, theirs is a 50% chance that the ship will mount a functioning black globe (factor-4).
    The Kokirraks are one of the older classes of dreadnaughts in Imperial service, and are now being phased out of active service. Within the last decade, several ships have been disposed of to other services such as the scouts, and to other governments, including sector navies and client-states in the Spinward Marches border regions of the Imperium.
