The Andorians never had scouts as powerful as those fielded by the Vulcans. Instead, the Andorians relied on their own breed of combat/escort scouts. These electronics vessels were optimized with battlefield performance in mind.
The Mokrasir was no exception. This light combat scout was adequately armed and could join the fray alongside its charges as needed. The Mokrasir’s primary role was as an escort for larger cruisers. In such cases the Mokrasir could deactivate its two light particle cannons and channel this extra power into the ship’s sensors and shield system. This left the quartet of particle beams for use in defending the fleet from incoming threats.
