Chala Heavy Cruiser

The Chala Heavy Cruiser is one of the most powerful warships fielded by the Children of Tama. The same size as a Federation Galaxy-class vessel, the Chala is in many ways just as advanced.

Although the Chala Heavy Cruisers are lacking in truly heavy weaponry, their strong complement of secondary weapons makes the ship a worthy opponent.

Design Notes:

The name 'Chala' along with the ship's desgination as a heavy cruiser is entirely of my design. The episode "Darmok" seemed to suggest that the Tamarians were more advanced in some ship based technologies, or at least used systems that the Enterprise-D crew had never previously encountered. This ship is designed as one belonging to a non-aligned power at near technological parity with the Federation becasue of this.
