The Union may be smaller than the other major Empires of the Quadrant, but it still had a lot of territory to protect and exploit, and consequently a cheap frigate was needed to patrol all of that space. This design was perhaps more combat oriented than a frigate from the Confederation would have been, but the single FTL nacelle, and other cost savings measures produced a powerful little ship that could be bought in sizable numbers.
Three 1/3788 starships, each roughly 20mm wide and 36mm long.
Each has a 2mm hole for mounting on a standard flight base.
