With the design of the Dolphin class having been thoroughly tested a redesign was called for to refine and improve on what had been learned. The Amani class Heavy Cruiser is the result.
The Amanis are built with the latest advances in technology and comfort. They can carry 1000 beings in comfort to the most dangerous places in the Galaxy and bring them back. This class is considered a development of the Dolphin class cruisers. An excellent class and general learning experience, and will serve beside them. Like the Dolphin class it will be built in Blue and Fleet versions. . It can be built with either the DiSodium HE warp drive (Blue Amani), which is preferred by the Horned Fleet, or in a standard diSodium system (Fleet Amani) favored by Starfleet. Performance curves are similar for both systems.
