The Death Rite class cruiser, known as the D-20 to Starfleet, was commissioned in mid-2254 and immediately rushed into the Four Years War, where they were used much like the famed D-7. Though the class suffered from a lack of maneuvering power and a relatively weak superstructure, it seemed to make up for these deficiencies in its weapons and shielding. This fault was corrected in 2270; the refit model was far more maneuverable and had more power, as well as a more efficient shielding system and a stronger superstructure. The class was produced at Gnuu Re’ and H’rez. The class was named from “the death of honor,” a traditional death rite; in this rite, a captive who has fought well was killed with a silver dagger handed down through family lines. When a family line was broken, the dagger was destroyed after it was used to eliminate the last family member.[1]
