The ancient New Class modernization program had crafted several warships worthy of repute, whose design legacies were sadly discounted due to the immense amount of allocated resources that were required for their creation. Because credits were hard to come by for the nascent New Republic, especially as the Civil War took its toll upon the Galaxy entire, it wasn’t surprising to note that the program was cancelled after several of these designs were made. Despite the massive cost attributed to these warships, the New Class vessels had proven themselves time and again when pitted against hostile forces. It was believed that these warships were some of the few that managed to stand their ground against the extragalactic invaders, when all others were forced to flee for their lives. With such a legacy attributed to their design, it was little wonder that the Republic Engineering Corporation of the present sought to emulate their past successes.

Thus, the Sacheen II - Class Heavy Cruiser was born. While the successor variant of the Sacheen bore little resemblance to the original, it was in this deviation that the true lethality of the design was found. With more surface area devoted to a partially aerodynamic and sturdy frame, the second iteration of the Light Escort Frigate was immediately more visually appealing at first glance. As much of the boxy design was streamlined, the Sacheen II would have little troubles in keeping up with those warships it was meant to escort. In addition to the change in visual appearance, as well as the streamlined space frame, the Sacheen II trumped it’s previous incarnation when it came to the layout of their Internalized Hangar Bay. The original Sacheen apparently had an issue when it came to recovering the starfighters it launched, as the structure didn’t allow for it. But, with the Sacheen II, however? Such efforts were naught but an automated trifle.

To further add to the improvements made in the Frigate’s design, the Sacheen II was outfitted with a secondary hangar bay, in a sense. The hangar, as it were, wasn’t surrounded by what many would consider to be traditional structural fare. Instead, the hangar was opened to the infinite void of space on all sides - save the dorsal surface. It was there that the warship was outfitted with a plethora of magnetic clamps and force transit cylinders that could hold a single vessel within its grasp. Naturally, this vessel couldn’t exceed fifty metres in size, as the Frigate’s spaceframe would be compromised and the supplementary craft would become stuck on the cavernous structure. But, with such a vessel within its tethered grasp, the Sacheen II’s mission profile greatly expanded beyond the original intent - making the warship perfect for projecting one’s force upon the spatial battlefield.

From there, the Sacheen II was more considerably armed than its predecessor. While there was a difference in weapons, as the original warship was outfitted with heavy turbolasers, the quantity and versatility of the successor vessel made it all the more powerful. The most notable addition to the Frigate’s array of weapons was the twin mass-driver cannons that were fixed to the spine of the warship’s superstructure. With these two combination weapons at hand, the Sacheen II would be more than capable of boring holes through vessels that were smaller or bore a similar classification. That being said, however, the Sacheen II was also capable of punching above its weight class too; as a well-timed superluminal volley from those spinal cannons could core through a cruiser’s hull. Should that volley be directed at their reactor? It was possible for that very cruiser to suffer a breach, and explode in a catastrophic manner.

When all of these factors were combined, be they mentioned or not, the Sacheen II would prove to be more than a worthy successor to the design legacy of the predecessor.
