Ptolemaios, commonly called Ptolemy, is the tactical mothership of Celestial Being in season 1 of Mobile Suit Gundam 00; the ship would later be succeeded by CBS-74 Ptolemaios 2

Structurally it has four separate docking bays, each with its own catapult to independently launch GN-001 - GN 005. As its main purpose is for the deployment of the Gundams, the ship itself is not armed. The Ptolemaios relies on the GN Drives of the Gundams for main power generation. A special connector in each of the docking bays allows the ship to connect to the GN Drive housed within the Gundams to draw power from them. When all four Gundams are launched from the ship, the amount of energy available to the ship is severely limited.
The ship is reliant on its GN Field, Gundams, GNR-001 GN Arms, and Assault Container for offense/defense. It's GN Field is generated by particle vents throughout the ship's hull, but is not an absolute defense as it can still suffer hull damage from close range enemy fire. The ship rarely sees combat as it's GN particles create a natural cloaking effect against electronic sensors; although it can be detected through wide network sensors that detect sudden area blackouts for the ships whereabouts. Eventually, after UN Forces figured out a way to detect GN particles, Ptolemy's defenses become ineffective and depended on its Gundams, GN Arms, and the Assault Container for defenses.
