Built at Leisz (Alpha Crucis 0121 (A000130-F)), these advanced warships were contracted by and for Solomani loyalists hiding among the workers. At the predetermined time the prize crews 'stole' the ships and they ended up in Solomani Navy hands. They were however, bought and paid for. The ownership of who ordered them was well hidden. The local builders had a don't ask, don't tell policy and were happy to have the credits and the work. Temporary guest workers, heavy industrial robots, and an unlicensed SOLSEC AI were rumored to be involved. Local imperial nobles could ill afford a major diplomatic incident and elected to accept the cover up and look the other way. The ships, while armed, were never promised to the imperial navy and looked like a mega-corporation wanted a private/star merc class of merchant escort.

The frigate is TL–15 and is advanced by Solomani standards. It features a thick, bonded super dense armored hull unmatched by most Solomani designs. Most turret weapons have no hope of penetrating its hull. The partially streamlined close configuration hull is fitted with 6 G maneuver drives and is capable of jump 4. The weapons are twelve triple missile turrets grouped in pairs, and twelve triple beam laser turrets organized the same way. This weapon load was calculated not to arouse suspicion. It is incapable of harming a capital ship of the line. It has a powerful and advanced model 9 fib computer and carries a 20 ton launch with no marines.
