The Nike-class escort frigates are designed, as their name suggests, as cheap convoy escorts, freeing up Archer-class and Sydney-class destroyers for other duties. When not shepherding convoys between jumpgates and planets, they patrol star systems, both friendly and enemy, often way out in the Oort cloud hoping to avoid detection...and find anyone else out there hoping to avoid detection, and detect them instead. If they do detect an enemy, they are fairly well armed for their size, being the smallest ship with full Lance Torpedo launch tubes.

Behind the scenes

These ships were designed (in a bit of a hurry) by Martin Hohner, and named alphabetically after a grab-bag of types of terms not numerous enough to get their own theme-named class.
