The Strike Cruiser
Specialization: Fleet Interdiction
The Strike Cruiser is fairly expensive when compared to the Cruiser, but features a much faster speed and excellent defenses for its size. Its primary purpose is to interdict an escaping enemy fleet with a special aura and slow it down (in both sublight and FTL) long enough for larger ships to catch up and enter the engagement.
