This Alien ship is a bit larger than a Confed cruiser, although size is not necessarily an indication of quality. More to the point is that the Hydra's anti-ship armament is also superior. It carries numerous Maser turrets and a hefty supply of missiles. Its shields and armor are of moderate strength.
There are shield emitters for the engines and bridge.

Description: The alien cruiser is a fairly straightforward vessel, somewhat larger than its Confed counterparts but similar in role and capability. Its anti-shipping armament is based on gunnery, and is generally superior to its Confed equivalents. Anti-fighter defenses are somewhat superior as well. Both shields and armor are moderate in strength. Entirely unlike Confed cruisers, it carries a small hangar region for the support of several fighters. These are usually Interceptors, though it is believed other types can at times be accommodated.
