The Bastion is a Battlecruiser with lots of Turret firepower and health.

   

Description

The Bastion is a heavy Battlecruiser that focuses on Turret firepower.

Interior

Once entering the Bastion, you will see a small teleporter and a door. Stepping on the teleporter will take you to the bridge, a small room in front of you-you will see a map and three chairs. Next to the teleporter that would take you to the bridge there is a door the door leads to a small room with four beds, a desk with a gnome on it and a chair.

Advantages

  • High Turret firepower.
  • Has no blind spots.
  • The highest amount of health of any current Battlecruiser.
  • Balanced weapons.
  • Has a large cargo hold for a Battlecruiser.
  • Good for PVP due to its mix of kinetic and energy weapons.
  • One of cheapest Battlecruisers.
  • Good for getting rid of Aliens.

Disadvantages

  • Low mobility for its class.
  • Lacks spinal weapons.
  • Somewhat vulnerable bottom. (Has 2 flaks, decent against hull, but they can't do much damage to shields.)
  • Easily out-gunned by larger and more heavily armed ships.
  • Due to the way the ship is shaped you have to turn it to get it out of dock which can give time to enemy ships to do damage.

Strategy

  • A good ship for beginners as the lasers deal much of the damage for while teaching the tactics required for low speed capital ships
  • Performs well as a support ship in sieges as it has many small turrets to destroy incoming small ships.
  • Best used for attacking ships below its size, as it has trouble with ships of same class due to its inferior mobility causing it to be unable to escape easily.

Version History

  • Before it used to have a massive explosion upon death, which easily damaged nearby ships and destroyed base Turrets. This has since been fixed.

Trivia

  • Named after a defensive architectural design built into medieval European castles. A Bastion protruded from a castle's walls, allowing defenders to attack from all angles.
  • The Bastion is one of the most used ships in Galaxy Arcade.
  • The Bastion has an easter egg that includes a Gnome on a desk with a few pieces of blank paper.
  • For a period of time the Bastion could not move or dock. The whole situation started with the gnome's hat falling off and preventing the ship from moving.

  • The console on the right has some memes like the illuminati triangle on it.
