Morket Defense Satellite
Description:

The Morket Defense Satellite was developed after the Circasians made first contact with other alien races. It was determined that a strong defensive position had to be taken to protect Circasia and her colonies from possible alien aggression. This need was made even more real when bands of pirates, raiders, and brigands began migrating into Circasian space to prey on unprepared merchants and installations.

The Morket is an odd satellite design in that it is asymmetrical. It's three arm structures contain the satellite's three rocket launchers and their internal magazines. A single light laser is mounted in a rotary turret as a separate section of the satellite.

The short range of the Morket's rocket launchers eventually forced them to be withdrawn from service and replaced with newer, more advanced satellite designs.
