The Guardian class vessel was designed a the same time as the Defiant. It was supposed to be a new frigate but was not put into production. The ship fits the need of a fast support ship for the Confederacy filling out the ranks. The design was one of the canceled designs stolen by defecting members of the ASDB when they went to the Confederacy.
