After the second Shivan incursion, the GTVA was heavily depleted in both resources morale. It was decided that immediate exploration should commence to find both new resource rich systems, and a new home for the Capellan refugees. For that purpose a new class of vessel was designed with frontier exploration and operation in mind. The GTSC Cyrene was designed to harbor the same scientific facilities as the Faustus, but has been streamlined for ease of exploration. It sports the most sophisticated and sensitive sensor system ever put on a space faring ship. The crews of the Cyrene class vessels commonly joke that they can read their neighbor's newspapers from several systems away. This innovation allows for a Cyrene class vessel to enter a system and get a fast, detailed layout of a system and quickly identify any threats. The Cyrene's sensor suite can also function in the niche of an AWACS craft. The Cyrene is also outfitted to protect itself from most threats. While it has no significant anti-capital ship weaponry, it is equipped with 5 Anti-fighter beams and various other weapons as circumstances dictate.
