The Winston class Light Cruiser is a warship.
Winston class Light Cruisers serve with the navy of the Winston Democracy, a polity lying to rimward of the Solomani Confederation. The vessel is built around a huge fusion power plant large enough to charge the big spinal mounted particle accelerator that runs the length of the ship's keel. The rest of its firepower is limited to turrets. Winstons are fundamentally gun platforms: they are slow and have little agility but punch far above their weight.
- The vessel is a TL-10 design.

Winston class Light Cruisers are part of The Democratic People's Defense Forces, the military of the Winston Democracy. They are designed to operate alongside Stormbringer class Fleet Tenders. They carry enough fuel for two jumps, to allow them to keep pace with the Stormbringers.
Accommodations aboard Winstons are notoriously poor, with cramped and inconveniently sited quarters and limited personal storage space.
