Kelandion are large, graceful sailing vessels of Thessian origin, pioneered by the city of Serrice for overseas trade, and widely considered the pinnacle of masted ship engineering of any species. Their name derives from the Serrice language "keles", meaning courser. Compared to Terran sail designs, the closest equivalent to kelandion would be clippers.

Although not traditionally a warship designation - ocean-going kelandion were rarely employed in an armed capacity during the Thessian age of sail - the name has come to apply to the Asari Republics' sub-capital warship types, equivalent to cruisers. Being based primarily on handling and design characteristics, rather than combat role, the designation also applies to unarmed space vessels fitting these criteria, thus it is common for asari to refer to private and merchant vessels as "cruisers" in translated speech.
