The Javelin class Destroyer is a combatant warship.
Javelin class Destroyers were designed for service with the Bain Defense Squadron, the space force of Bain, a world lying in Spica Sector and a member of both the Boötean Federation and the Solomani Confederation. Though Javelins are tiny by the standards of most Solomani Confederation vessels they are occasionally called upon for Boötean and Confederation service, where their speed, small size and inconspicuous nature are an advantage. The vessel is a TL-10 design.
