The Angel Links is a "one-of-a-kind" battleship commanded by Meifon Li.

History

Creation

When control of the Links Group is given to Meifon in the last will and testament of her father, Chenho Li, Meifon commissioned the construction of the ship she named the Angel Links. The Angel Links was designed by Lord Hiraga Dynecourt[3] with the express intention of representing the Links Group's non-profit efforts against space piracy. The ship was built in the span of three months following Meifon's public announcement to her employees.

Employees she chose to as her crewmen underwent a rigorous training regiment during the ship's construction. All exercises were overseen by Meifon and Kosei Hida, who was appointed to Meifon by Chenho to be her aid. Once the crew was selected, elements of the ship were tested for endurance and durability with regard to space combat with Grappler ships. Following the competition of the ship, a ceremony was held for the launch of the ship.[3]

Oracle Canon Incident

Three months into the Angel Links's service, Meifon and the crew were practicing maneuvers in the Outer Oracion System when they were attacked by Ashid B space pirates. The ship's crew was overwhelmed by the number of enemies attacking the ship and in ditch effort, Meifon activated the Oracle Cannon. The cannon destroyed the space pirates, but seventeen merchant ships were caught in the blast of the Oracle Cannon.[3]

The incident led to a major scandal which brought Meifon's abilities as a captain and the head of the Links Group into question by the media. Rumors began to circulate that the Angel Links would lose certification over Oracle Cannon Incident. However, Kosei saw that the situation was handled discretely with a lot of money and the issue was dropped.[3]

Reformation

Meifon had the original crew of the ship fired in order to hire better pilots. Following the recruitment of Valeria Vertone and Duuz Delax Rex, six more members were added during the re-tests that reconfirmed the Angel Links as a ship fit for combat. On its second maiden voyage, the ship and its crew successfully able to defeat a band of pirates without major causality.[3]

Design

Exterior

The Angel Links was designed to resemble a bird or angel in flight, its rear wings posed in a sort of dive formation.

Interior

Weapons System

The Angel Links operates not unlike major Space Forces battleships and weaponized bases.

Links Cannon

The Links Cannon is the secondary weapon of the Angel Links. Lacking the destructive power of the Oracle Cannon, the Links Cannon has the ability to destroy multiple targets without causing major causalities outside of their intended targets. When activated, Meifon stands on the platform situated below the captain's chair, between her navigator and communications officers. The platform below becomes illuminated when the cannon is readied for use and raised slightly from the ground. Multiple images of the weapon's user (oftentimes Meifon) is projected forward three times. A miniature aiming system resembling a gun that mirrors the underbelly of the Angel Links is the firming mechanism.

Oracle Cannon

The Oracle Canon, by its very nature, disturbs ether by creating massive waves. If the weapon is fired in the proximity of other ships (regardless of their type), the ships will lose power and control. Dead in space, ships within the line of fire will be destroyed. The Oracle Cannon disturbs normal space flight to the point where it would be impossible for the pilot to control the sub ether drive. Such an incident resulted in the destruction of seventeen merchant ships during a grappler ship combat with pirates, three or months after the ‘’Angel Links’’ maiden voyage.

Trivia

  • In the English Dub for Angel Links, before firing the Links Cannon, Meifon will shout "Cherubim".[2] Cherubs are angels who attended to the Abrahamic God in biblical tradition and are considered the second highest order of Angels in traditional Christian angelology.
