Baron class
Commissioned 2285

The Hydran Kingdoms' Baron class light command cruiser, a variant of the Lancer class destroyer, was commissioned circa 2285. The Baron class designed as a replacement squadron leader, and was found to be more suitable than a Ranger or Lord Marshal class when paired with Horseman or Traveler class ships because of their similar operating characteristics. The class was eventually replaced by the Comanche and Apache medium command cruiser classes.

The class carried two squadrons of three Stinger class fighters; it featured a crew complement of 320, a capacity of four shuttlecraft, and was equipped with three science labs, two transporters, and two tractor beam emitters. The class was armed with two hellbore weapons, two fusion beam emitters, three banks of Type-1 phasers, and two banks of Type-G Gatling phasers. The class remained in service until 2304.[1]
