The Guardian-class Medium Cruiser is a capital ship which is a staple of many pirate, mercenary and patrol fleets. Thanks to its vast armament and docking bay, the ship can be used for anything from a picket, to a decoy, to its original purpose as a patrol craft. The Guardian became widely known for its use by customs agencies and planetary governments to search suspicious crafts. It has since been improved drastically and undergone multiple upgrades. The usage has now changed to being more of a combat ship designated for battle assignments rather than defense, protection and security. The Guardian is a well rounded capital ship boasting decent speed, maneuverability and hyperspeed as well as hull, shield and ionic capacity and it now serves multiple privateers who have intentions of building their own fleet.
