Centaur Light Cruiser
Description:

A light warship built from an Excelsior's saucer section with a short connecting strut to two warp nacelles, the Centaur serves primarily as a light patrol and police craft charged with local planetary defense within Federation borders. The aging vessel lacks substantial firepower but its enhanced maneuvering makes it perfect to act as a mid-sized escort for Federation capital ships, screening enemy light craft before they can attack.

Design Notes:


This class is a standard Star Trek kitbash model made up of parts of the Excelsior. I used the Excelsior as the basis for this ship, downgrading its statistics
to compensate for the loss of the engineering hull. The result is a slender ship that is low on weapons yet fairly maneuverable.
