M. Metlay class Imperial Navy Fleet Escort (Military Starship)

The Metlay class fleet escort was designed by the Imperial Navy's own Bureau of Ships in 872. With Jump-4 capability, the Metlay is still capable of performing valuable work for the Imperial Navy, although most new construction is for frontier planetary navies. Members of the class are traditionally named after posthumous winners of the Imperial Navy's Medal for Conspicuous Gallantry. Normal operation of the vessel (full maneuver power and life support) requires 66% of the power plant capacity, and the rated endurance shown below is based on this figure.
