Saber Attack Frigate
Description:

The Saber Attack Frigate is slightly larger than the Defiant Heavy Escort and is born from the same lineage. Designed as a warship to supplement the firepower of larger ships on the battlefield, the quick and maneuverable Saber can deliver heavy firepower to the enemy for its size. Unfortunately, the Saber suffers from several flaws, the worst of which is a lack of rearward weaponry, leaving the ship exposed, and even moreso after it begins taking damage. This very fact has hindered the Saber from entering common service.

Design Notes:


A First Contact ship, the Saber's armament was recommended by Matthew Bond. The ship is supposed to be a fast attack unit
to hit enemy ships in support of the larger cruisers in the fleet, but it leaves much to be desired.
