"...our first business should be toward the creation of an institution of sorts, an establishment with authority granted by the Senate itself to draw on all of the space-faring resources of the Republic in order to defend our Galaxy...a Galactic Naval Directorate if you will..."
- Captain Hershal Halleck
- The Galactic Republic Navy -
Commissioned by special mandate of an emergency session of the Senate in 11,442, this is the fighting arm of the Axian service, a directorate with galactic authority, overseeing all operations of the Axian Galaxy's naval power, the training and readiness of her ships and soliders and charged with the defense of her borders and allies. The Navy was created in response to the direct threat posed to the Republic by the occupation of the neighboring Andromeda Galaxy by forces of the Flying Pig Imperium. It was commonly thought that if Axias did not rush to the aid of the stricken Armeanian Empire, that Andromeda would fall to the crushing advance of the Imperium and leave the door open for an invasion of Axias. The Naval Directorate is itself comprised of smaller component directorates which are assigned such responsibities as Fleet Operations, Readiness, Personel, and Intelligence. Each of these arms of the Navy is directed by an Admiral or Grand Admiral who oversees the function of thier respective directorate and answer to the Admiralty on Cytan.
The Galactic Naval Academy, also located on Cytan, is the premier school of modern warfare in all of the Republic, boasting among it's staff many of the Republic's foremost minds in the facets of naval engagment and tactics, armored combat, and infantry manuavers to name but a few. It is here that a being enters into the naval service after enlisting and becomes aclimated into the Navy's diverse and unique culture. The Academy essentially functions as it's own directorate and operates many facilities across the planet and in orbit, as well as many specialized training grounds and schools across the whole of the Republic.
The Directorate of Naval Operations, or the 'NavOps' as it is sometimes refered to, is the umbrella directorate
The Department of Naval Communications, or the 'D.N.C.' as it is called, is based on the planet Chorus and is responsible for overseeing and maintaining the Republic's Hyper Reality Impluse Network, wherby all Naval elements of Republic are interconnected. The network relies on the psionic link between organic entities called link nodes that are common aboard all Naval vessels. All link nodes are the genetic and psionic duplicate of the master node which is the heart the of the Fleet Command Nexus on Chorus.
