The Antares class survey cruiser was designed for longer range duties than her recent predecessors, the relatively large secondary hull giving greater storage capacity for consumables and fuel, as well as an ample supply of survey drones. The class gained a reputation for toughness and reliability as the simple no frills design served well for almost 60 years despite the loss of the class ship.
The USS Antares, lead-ship of this class was lost with all hands on March 30th 2239. The name was next given to a freighter which was lost with all hands in 2266.
