The Prince of Wales class of Light Cruisers were built shortly before the Long Beach class of Heavy Cruisers, and served as a testbed for the modular turret concept.  Although they lack the gravity drive of their larger brethren, they are very well armed for their size, being the smallest ship ever armed with a Grav Laser.  While the Fusion Cannons, Chemlasers, and much other equipment is modular and can be swapped out easily between missions, the Grav Laser cannot be removed.  It also has the capacity for a full squadron of starfighters, usually F-7 Corsairs.  The ships of this class are all named for British warships or historical figures from Earth That Was.

Behind the Scenes[]

This class was designed (rarther in a hurry) by Martin Hohner, based on a vague concept by Nathan Bax.  Lorpius Prime made a rather cool 3-D rendering of this class for Season Eight, but it has apparently been lost in the meantime.  Oh well.
