Description (Specifications)[edit]

Hygiea class Frigates are TL–12, streamlined needle/wedge hulls capable of wilderness ocean refueling. They support the battle line and protect the Sorority class Fleet Tenders. They have a large missile bay and tend to bombard targets from range. Their acceleration allows them to escape larger ships. They serve with the Sorority of Hygiea navy.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The Hygiea class Frigates, are considered inexpensive in bulk and are capable of wilderness ocean refueling without assistance. They use their heavy missile barrages to cripple enemy vessels. The size of this main weapon limited their agility. The secondary weapon array is generally regarded as well balanced. They lack hull armor, but retain screens. They feature good range, especially if the Jump-3 drop tanks can be employed.
