Manticore-class Fast Attack Corvette
The Orion Class was considered a "Pocket Battlestar", an attempt to fit decent hangar bays, good armaments and good armor in a small package. Ultimately, the class fell short of every goal it was trying too accomplish, too underpowered to really be a solid threat to larger ships, armor too weak to withstand the kind of firepower it would be facing. However, due to the carbon-based hull and plating it is particularly light and can achieve considerable speeds and maneuverability, and combined with advanced electronic equipment and some engineering ingenuity, later improvements granted it limited Stealth ability.
