The Lamb was the flagship for the Left Arm of The Imperium before she was trapped within the Time Lock Event and gone from the Multiverse. The ship is fashioned from the bone of a space whale, which was once the ship of Space Orca, and the dust of Brethrain - a god that had taken the form of a moon around Indra. The ship held no weaponry itself but, instead, utilised incredibly powerful tractor beams that could latch onto and drag stellar bodies much larger than itself. It has several Omega Reich vessels in its vicinity, held by tractors, which provide support, offensive or defensive services to make up for The Lamb's own lack thereof.
The corridors of the ship appear as ancient, grey stone and are extremely wide (big enough for a modern tank from Earth). The ship has no doors, instead the passages from room-to-room are holes barred by invisible barriers that allow only certain people entry. The ship uses the common drow technology of replicators, though modified so that goods can be replicated anywhere on the ship instead of in a replicator bank[Tales 1].
Many Imperium ships use portals to travel between their ships and planets, allowing people to travel quickly and efficiently. The room is managed by a transporter chief, who controls the portals as well as the lone transporter pad[Tales 1].
Because Imperium portals only connect to other Imperium locations, non-Imperium personnel must be beamed aboard using the transporter pad[Tales 1].
The conference room is a room used by officials of the ship to meet with non-ship personnel, including foreign dignitaries. The room is very wide but has a low ceiling. Like the corridors of the ship, the walls are smoothed out stone but have carved depictions of important Imperium people in them for decoration. The room is dimly lit by low-hanging lights from the centre of the ceiling, hanging above the long, ovular, black table. Around the table are chairs with velvet cushions[Tales 1].
The Engineering section of the ship is actually split into two sections - one for the impulse engines and one for the astral shift engines. When saving The Lamb from the Time-Lock Event, Iskendriel and Rab'ia al Fihri were tasked with planting a reality stabiliser in the engineering section[Tales 2].

Shades of an Empire
The ship's conference room was used for the meeting between High Legatifex Astrid and Ameryl Hypericum when the High Empire required passage through Imperium space in order to hunt down the rebel Indigo Shade. Ameryl agreed to aid Astrid and provide escort[Tales 1]. When Ameryl travelled to confront Highemperor and her sister, Imeryn, in battle, she took the God-Killer[Pan 1]. However she transferred from The Lamb to the God-Killer, so The Lamb was present at the battle. The battle itself ended with a Time-Lock that trapped Ameryl and her foes within it. A Peacekeepers team, under the leadership of Iskendriel, travelled through time and space to preserve The Lamb by planting reality stabilisers around the ship. This prevented the ship from being drawn into the time-lock so that it could continue to serve The Imperium[Tales 2].
