The Pulsar-class are fast destroyers built by the Laconian Empire. Shortly before the Laconia-Sol Conflict, the Pulsar-class was considered state-of-the-art[1]. The class is tall and sleek and reminiscent of old Earth naval ships.[2]


The Pulsar-class came into service shortly before the Laconia-Sol Conflict. The ship design was state-of-the-art. One vessel was assigned as escort for the Heart of the Tempest as it entered the Slow Zone. This ship, the Gathering Storm, remained docked with Medina station after the Tempest left, and was later captured by militants.
