"The strike cruisers of the VLEZHDATL class are typical Zhodani escort and frontier war ships. The highest technology available is used on these ships. Any high tech equipment aquired by the Zhodani may find its way into a VLEZHDATL class ship. This all depends on what is available and what the larger Zhodani ships require.
Within the VLEZHDATL class there are many variations. The most frequent is the omission of the meson screens on ships not likely to meet Imperium war ships. The extra space is used to store engineering equipment or special equipment for specialized missions. Other variations include different armaments and restructuring of the fighter bay. This assualt sub-class has a variety of marine landing equipment ready to be dropped.
Another variation in the design of VLEZHDATL ships is psionic gear. Even in the vast populations of the Zhodani Consulate the number of exceptional psionic talents is limited. To make even greater use of these individuals, special equipment designed to enhance their already great powers may be installed. This gear is usually seen in blisters attached to the bridge. As Imperial expertise in the area of psionics is limited, the exact nature and use of this equipment is not known.
What is known about the psionic capabilities of VLEZHDATL class ships is that any or all of the officers may have psionic powers. The chances increase greatly with rank. It is almost certain the the Commanding officer. Executive officer, and Marine Company Commander will have some capability.
VLEZHDATL class ships are usually found in groups of three, in a triangular formation. This way the heavy fire power of the ships can be directed against one target or many. The formation also provides good protection for auxiliary or fragile ships. By moving relative to the VLEZHDATLs, the protected ships can keep the VLEZHDATLs between them and the threat. Because of the Jump-1 limitation of the VLEZHDATL, special arrangements must be made for extended patrols. On such patrols an auxiliary tanker is assigned to the squadron. This unarmed, unarmored ship provides enough fuel for three ships to make another jump. In addition, the tanker will be equipped with scoops, a refining plant, and extra stores. Such squadrons are very useful as independent commands, free to do as they please within their orders. They are powerfull enough to do most anything and they are able to perform sustained operations."

Rescue on Galatea
"The mission seemed simple: rescue an abducted merchant Prince from the hands of a rival corporation in time to avert an interstellar war. The one month deadline seemed to be more than enough time to complete the mission. That is until the adventurers arrive at the planet where the prince is being held. Galatea, a world made up of thousands of islands and very severe weather made the mission a little more difficult, but then the intelligent natives, the Jessa, ended all hopes of an easy completion of what was once just a simple mission."
