As seen in Trident's latest video series!
Detailed further here: Halberd-class
The Halberd-class is a class of technologically advanced exploration vessels, produced by Trident Fleetworks and in service with Trident Foundries.
An offshoot of the Generation 2 Warship program, the Halberd retains several details from such warships as the Eris- and Enforcer-classes. However, it is made for exploration and cruising, and as such it's weapons and defences have been toned down, and extensive interior installed in its place.
The vessel has a large hangar bay with Rail doors, that is large enough to accommodate a Trident Delta-class Dropship. When the doors open, the Dropship's platform raises upwards for easier takeoff and landing.
In addition, there is a small sub-hangar and a small door in the bottom of the main hangar floor, for any ships inside the sub-hangar to disembark from.
There is plenty of empty space inside the ship, to customise with new systems or to add the upcoming NuPOWERtm into your ship.
