A spacecraft design of human origin. The Hastings-class Frigate is a mainstay of the Systems Alliance Navy due to its durability, proven reliability and somewhat substantial firepower; armed with a trio of two hundred and fifty metre mass accelerators and a sizeable bay of torpedos. Its competitive GARDIAN batteries, powerful engines and robust sensor suite have made it a staple in the detection and interception of pirates. The Hastings-class is two hundred and seventy-eight metres in length with a crew of seventy. Most frigates in this class are currently being retrofitted with ablative armour and Thanix weaponry, though plans to phase it out in favour of the newer Leipzig-class continue.
