The Fenris class Dreadnought is a TL–12 heavily armored, partially streamlined sphere configuration hull. This dreadnought class is equipped for Jump-2 range and 5 G acceleration and 2-Agility. It carries enough fuel internally for a single Jump-2. The WSS Fenris is fitted with a pair of Model/6 fib computers adjacent to the bridge.
For defense, there are twenty batteries of triple sand caster batteries, and twenty repulsor bays. There is Factor-12 hull armor cladding to defend against critical hits. It is equipped with fuel scoops and fuel purification for gas giant wilderness refueling. It can carry twenty 60 ton Cutters for ship to surface operations. For offense, there are forty batteries of triple beam laser turrets, twenty-two batteries of fusion guns, seventy missile bays and twenty particle accelerator bays. Two fighter squadrons provide combat space patrols, to screen versus enemy fighters and missile strikes. The marine battalion can deploy from meteoric orbital assault and is recovered by the cutters. It has an armored cavalry troop with nine massive 10T Grav APCs.
The 2,800,000 cubic meter hull requires 224 weeks singly and will only take 180 weeks in quantity for construction of future follow on unit orders. This class was commissioned as part of a massive expansion of fleet operational capacity. The new arms race demands worlds procure ships of the line as soon as possible to safeguard their sovereignty. The computer technology limits the vessel's size and the meson gun spinal mount is considered the most powerful available on the Distant Fringe.

This is the flagship of the Wolf (world) Navy under the auspices of the Wolf Joint Military Command. The Fenris leads the first battle squadron of the fleet. Hard to hurt, but not particularly hard to hit. It can bulldoze through most enemy lines of battle. The defensive mindset means it carries less fuel and has less range than the more numerous Pador class Dreadnoughts, but a larger marine compliment and more defensive systems. It serves to anchor the defense and deterrence mission of the Wolf System Navy and patrols in the Paradise Subsector. The WSS Fenris carries a massive number of heavy missile bays, and as a result some internal fuel supply was lost, curtailing operational range, without tanker support.
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".
