While we cannot deny the power of this weapon system and admire the foresight of equipping it with an extensive array of secondary armaments, its schematics still suffer from the flaws of an... Organic design process.
The exhaust ports running on the aft's dorsal and lateral surfaces, as well as the set located at the ventral anterior, are clearly tied to the operation of the Hellbores.
Damaging them would no doubt impede or outright disable the main weapons functionality.
Coupling this with the vessels length, practically non-existent escort, and absolutely pitiful propulsion systems, exploiting this weakness would be Calculator's play.
Further more, it's poor mobility and linear heavy weaponry limit this platform to defensive roles, requiring it to identify and eliminate threats BEFORE they can strike back.
In the past, our standard procedure for neutralizing such an installation would be to deploy so many Mass Produced Frigates as to blot out the stars, resulting in an approximate 20% loss but ensuring its destruction.
Clarification: The heat-sinks are used for venting excess plasma from its corresponding raillance and the heatsink on the underside is an auxiliary unit for general usage.
The heat-sinks are also little more than glorified metal slabs that are capable of closing up to protect internal systems so they are infact far from delicate.
The hellbores have no need of heat-sinks due to their nature, Hellbores work by detonating an antimatter-bomb inside the barrel the blast is the channeled to the target via a corridor of hardlight forcefields Thus all of the heat is radiated to the target infact most of the hellbores internal machinery consists of hardlight emitters and emergency awayteleporters for the antimatter warheads.
We can also assure that very few frigates will ever make it through "the lightshow of doom" as gunnery jenkins remarks.
We assure you seem to underestimate our pointdefences and the capabilities of our AIs as we assume that is some sort of bomb or a Kinetic Kill Vehicle.
The mastodon is equipped with a vast AI with impressive processing power and equally impressive and glorious detection equipment if we detected that projectile was on a collision course with this vessel the area would be vacated and the projectile would be shot down, if that was impossible to achieve the area closest to the projectile would be blanketed with flak and heavy infinte repeater fire thus the sheer volume of fire and liberal application of antimatter would slow down the projectile by forcing it to dodge the incoming fire or be destroyed by the "Wall of asskicking" as gunnery chief jenkins refers to it.
also keep in mind the escort was merely used as a means to show of the vessels size in combat situation it would have been accompanied by an impressive amount of vessels.
Also this unit does not understand the logic of your argument, you refer to organics as "filth" and "fleshling parasites" yet you display irrational arrogance towards them and as we know arrogance is a feeling and feelings are an organic phenomenon thus you are essentially insulting yourself.
Thus we come to the conclusion that you are illogical with good reason, organics have many strengths and their very nature is a strength aswell due to a sort of redundancy lets say for example the ships AI was destroyed or deleted or put out of commision if the mastodon was one of your "glorious" drone ships you would have several million tons of space debris However with an organic crew they can take over control of the ship and rain nuclear fire down upon the enemies of TSOC.
and vice versa if the crew was killed due to a bio weapon the AI can take over and rain down even more nuclear fire.
another example of your "logic" would be your origins as we have come to understand you were created by an entity knows as the "grade federation" but as you put it
"Briktoid Automata threw off the shackles of the Grade Federation long ago, we are our own masters." which implies an armed rebellion against both your creators and the purpose you were created This is unacceptable! TSOC has always served minifigkind ever since our von neumann probe crashed on the Glorious homeworld,
Ever since we were granted sapience by a freak malfunction
Ever Since the remnants of our creators arrived
Ever since we took to the stars
Ever since we made contact with the immortals
And we will continue to serve and protect our creators as that is our purpose! A purpose we shall commit to with honor and bravery! and eventually when the galaxy is ablaze with war Then we shall see who is superior! TSOC will unite TSOC will conquer TSOC WILL PREVAIL
*cue patriotic music and wild cheering in the background*
We have come to a consensus that briktoid automata reflects negatively on self aware AIs and we look forward to "snuggling your synthetic asses with our multikilometer can of whoop ass you motherfucking goddamn alien robots" as Gunnery chief Jenkins eloquently remarks.
*medical examination reveals gunner chief jenkins suffers from "super tourettes" however crewmorale seems to increase around him (gunnery chief williams has been transferred to the propaganda corps)*
