This design is a product of the TL–11 orbital boatyards of Blass (Halcyon 1333), and represent one of the major security elements of their fleet. They carry enough fuel, internally for a single jump 2, with a jump 2 reserve for strategic withdrawal. They can carry drop tanks with an additional jump 2 as needed. This design serves with the Enlightened fleet. It is an streamlined, saucer fitted with fuel scoops for ocean refueling. This ship carries four triple missile turrets, four triple beam laser turrets, one dual plasma turret, and one sand caster turret. They are fitted with a pair of model 5 fib computers. Despite the massive drives and power plant fitted, which accounts for most of their construction cost, they have some power left over for 3 agility. They are capable of 5Gs of acceleration and the computer's power demands reduces the agility. These ships has light hull armor and fewer marines than the larger Hogan Class Frigate, with only 7 marines and they are found protecting the worlds of the Enlightened.
