The Andor Class is the only operational missile cruiser in Star Fleet. These unique vessels have gained the respect and admiration of their crews because of their handling characteristics and offensive capabilities. The overall design came from Andorian design teams contracted to create a cruiser with photon torpedoes as its main weapons. These ships have so captured the heart and spirit of the Andorians that the majority are crewed solely by them. All have been named for Andorian military leaders. The Andor Class forms the core of all squadrons in the famed 'Blue Fleet', and is an integral part of front line forces for Star Fleet.
Like the Thufir Class destroyer, the warp engines are mounted close together and center aft of the main hull. This affords the engines more protection during battle because of the partial cover provided by the secondary hull. As with all Star Fleet vessels, the engines can be jettisoned in case of an overload in the matter/anti-matter chamber.
The most unusual feature of this vessel is the weapons array. Mounting two FH-13 phasers and 8 FP-7 photon tor- pedoes, it well deserves its informal name of 'missile boat'. Andor Class vessels are capable of engaging the enemy at 80,000 km with their phasers, and 160,000 km with their torpedoes. Due to the number of torpedoes and the ranges at which they are most effective, these vessels normally operate in combat at 120,000 km. The Andor Class has been encountered and engaged by both Romulan and Klingon forces, which were taken by surprise when the Star Fleet vessel fired a spread of torpedoes whose number was unexpected. In each case, the enemy withdrew from the field of battle before the cruiser could be fully put to the test.
The Andor Class cruiser is manufactured at the Andor and Salazaar shipyards at a combined rate of 28 per year. Of the 140 Andors built, 138 remain in active service. Two have been scrapped after a high-speed collision that resulted in irreparable damage.
