The Scientist class was a class of superdreadnoughts built and operated by the Solarian League Navy. They were named after great scientists of human history.

Class design Edit

By the standards of the pre-war Royal Manticoran Navy (1900 PD), they were a decent design. By 1922 PD, these vessels became obsolete in the more modern battle environment of the Havenite-Manticoran Wars, both where their offensive and defensive capabilities and their personnel requirements were concerned. (HH12)

Rescue procedure and smallcrafts Edit

Scientist class and Vega class were equipped with number of smallcrafts and lifepods enabling evacuation of 5,000 crew. Number of smallcrafts was bigger than average one in the Royal Manticoran Navy as of 1900 PD[2].

Solarian smallcrafts were outdated, thus bigger than its Manticoran counterparts.

Derivates Edit

The Vega class was basically a repeat Scientist-class with a couple of additional missile tubes. (HH12)
