The Geneva's shipyard description
The oncoming Human-Covenant war destroyed any attempt for a diplomatic solution with the aliens. However, a change of fortune came when the Great Schism occurred and brought the Sangheili's Swords of Sangheilios into an alliance with the remaining UNSC forces. With a possibility to create a much more powerful alliance with other Covenant Remnant factions, designers from Sinoviet took the obsolete Berlin-class frigate as a start for the new diplomatic vessel. Housing equipment best used for negotiating and pursuing economic deals, the Geneva-class was an immediate success, and is sought after by any UEG dignitaries looking to improve diplomatic ties with other factions and organizations. In fact, it was so successful that all surviving Berlin-class frigates were converted over to the new model, ensuring a surplus in these vessels across UEG space.
Weapons and Tactics
As a diplomatic vessel, the Geneva forgoes any and all weapons and does away with armor for improved interior space. It does have some tools to mitigate threats while in warzones without breaching any ceasefires:
- Diplomatic Immunity: Broadcasts of peace prevent the envoy from being the target of enemy fire for a short duration.
- Briefly renders the ship invulnerable and unable to be targetted. Can be set to autocast.
- Goodwill: Goodwill missions are sent to the surface, causing the Minor Faction to ally with your empire until the missions end.
- Launches a party down to an unallied planet owned by a Minor Faction, making them allies for a short time. Must be explored and can be set to autocast.
- Non Canon
- In the 0.56 release, the ship still used the audio files from the Berlin-Class Frigate, making it a little annoying and confusing. This has been fixed in the initial 0.75 release.
- The captain will humorously clear his throat and say "wort wort wort" referencing the original voice line by Elites in Combat Evolved.
- In another of his voice lines he claims to be brushing up on his Sangheili.
