History - The Outer Colonies Region[]

And now we come to the part I have the most difficulty believing, because if the book's right, then these guys are sitting on the single largest collection of warships in existence. Even if you took all the hidden caches that the Clans are supposed to have hidden away somewhere, on a ton-for-ton basis, this guys have to be in a class of their own.

If you believe the book.

As I said before, I did some digging and some of these names do correspond with known Star League ships, but records from that time are hardly accurate. ComStar, Word of Blake, or the Clans might have a better list hidden away somewhere, but if they do they're not sharing. Who knows, maybe the Word stumbled upon the Outer Colonies and that's where they got some of their surprising warship strength from?
But that's just idle speculation; I'll just give you the numbers and let you decide for yourselves.

"Given the number of ships they claim to have, the fact that so few are apparently on active service could mean that the others not fit for service, or they lack the means to support a larger number. You can decide for yourself, as they give no mention of the number of civilian or military JumpShips at their disposal, so it's hard to gage the pool of trained personnel they can draw on. They do however claim to have at least two shipyards capable of repairing if not building warships; one in orbit of Port Stanley, the other over New Jamaica.

They also claim to have a
Newgrange class YardShip in the Hamunaptra system, so it is possible that they are running at least basic maintenance on the ships under their care.
But, again, this is all speculation until someone gets hold of credible evidence one way or the other."
