These ships were used by the Asurans to complement their fleet of Aurora-class ships. Since the Asurans use the Aurora-class as their primary warships, these ships are presumably used as support ships. At least one of these ships can cloak. Little is known about these ships as they have not been encountered very often. They are armed with drones and some kind of energy weapons. (ATL: "Progeny", "Lifeline", "This Mortal Coil")
