Designed and built at Denirad for the High Senate. These ships operate within the Far Home Sector. The TL–11 fully streamlined needle/wedge structure hulls are lightly armored. They carry enough fuel, internally for a single jump 2, with a jump 2 reserve for strategic withdrawal. They can carry drop tanks for an additional jump 2 as needed. There are in service with the High Senatorial Navy. They are equipped with scoops and on board fuel purification for wilderness ocean refueling. As a troop transport they carry as many marines as they can; 162 marines. The weapons include two dual plasma gun turrets for point defense, four triple beam laser turrets, and a missile bay for offense. The defenses include the armor plating over vital areas to protect against critical hits and four triple sand caster turrets. They have a model 5 fib computer mounted adjacent to the bridge and are capable of 2 G acceleration and have a 1 agility rating. There are five of these troop transports in the fleet, they multi-role as frigates when needed.

Distant Fringe Vessels
The Distant Fringe is said to be a far spinward-rimward area inhabited by colonists and refugees originating on Terra. The region is extremely isolated, separated from the rest of Charted Space by vast, almost uncrossable rifts that were once broached by a system of calibration Points and the use of tankers. Those few academics within Charted Space who have found references to the Distant Fringe regard it as little more than a tall tale. Likewise, many of the inhabitants of the Distant Fringe believe the existence of Charted Space to be mythical.
Vessels originating within the Distant Fringe are very rarely encountered outside of the region. However, misjumps do occur and anomalies with bizarre spacetime and Jumpspace effects exist: as such, craft of this type are not entirely unknown within Charted Space.
Class Naming Practice/s & Peculiarities
Each vessel within the class is named by the government of the state that produces it. They generally draw on traditional naming protocols and it is not uncommon for a historical class name to be reused.
- Individual vessels within the class are issued specific serial numbers and transponder codes.
- Naming a ship is considered a serious affair and is generally accompanied by a traditional ceremony, usually pouring a local beverage over the bows of the craft. Starfarers tend to be superstitious folk and a ship with a frivolous name is considered "unlucky".
