The Nolikian class Battle Rider is a defensive warship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Carried by the Lurenti class Battle Carrier, these 20,000 ton battle riders carry the heaviest armor and the best meson spinal mount available. This comes at the expense of agility. They carry several redundant systems in the event of battle damage.

The current standard defensive craft is the Nolikian class Battle Riders.
