History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Built at a local TL–14 shipyard they serve with the 289th Fleet, among others. These ships were never intended to serve in line units. Unfortunately events conspired to demand more modern TL–15 ships in other parts of the empire. As a result these were shifted into front line units, until modern replacements could be procured from the nearest fleet depot. And so, they have been here ever since.
