The Hyperion-class heavy cruiser was an Allied warship manufactured by KarmaTech at the Neue Hanse Orbital Shipyard in Earth orbit. Like most Earth Alliance ships of the period, the Hyperion lacked the capability to generate artificial gravity, either through the use of rotating sections or the later, more advanced gravitic drive systems.[2] Though rotating sections were within Earthforce's technical capabilities of the time, they greatly reduced a ship's speed and effectiveness.[3] As such the crew had to operate in a completely zero gravity environment, requiring the use of seat straps and handholds to work effectively.
