The Teh'qu class was an early design prior to the Raven class in the empire. entering service around 2107, this warship was effective, yet very primitive. It was armed with 4 forward anti-proton lasers plus 2 forward disruptors, portrayed at this time as "heavy weapons." This with a cloaking device and limited crew meant this ship was deadly, but not overpowering. It wasn't particularly maneuverable, but its top speed was fast for the time. It could not handle Karpathian scouts, but it could go toe to toe with Karpathian and Channan cruisers.
