NOTES:
The Mk I Royal Sovereign is equipped with the powerful FWO-2 warp engines that were successful on other larger deep space vessels, as well as the latest quad-tranducer shielding system. This class had been an unqualified success. Besides functioning as warships, several Royal Sovereigns have distinguished themselves as exploration craft, most notably the Valliant’s initial contact with the humanoid species on Have.

The Mk II Royal Sovereign is equipped with the more powerful FNWD-5a warp system, increasing overall speed. Overall tactical systems were nearly doubled, the the use of FNH-38 to preplace the older FH-20’s. The class continues to serve as both a military deterrent and a powerful exploratory platform.

Of the twelve Royal Sovereigns built, eight are still in service, two have been lost, and two destroyed. All Mk Is were refit to Mk IIs just in time to participate in the Dominion War. The Royal Sovereign class was produced at the Salazaar Shipyards at a rate of one per year.
