History: The Bentus class corvette was created out of the need for a small exploration ship capable of quickly scouting high-risk areas of space. The designs for the craft originated with the Vaygr. who were intending to use the craft as a command corvette for high ranking personnel, and thus needed it to be able to keep pace with the main force no matter what, and designed the ship with advanced shielding and sensors all designed to be able to deal with radiation and projectiles, be they asteroids or HEAT shells. It was also designed for longevity in its mission, and thus was made hyperspace compatible and long ranged. For its long range, it was given the new radial ion engine and zero-point energy reactor, which would allow for extended flight under normal operating perameters. The Vaygr were defeated before the ship could go into use, and the blueprints, models, and prototypes were captured and converted to run on Hiigaran technology. A fully-functioning prototype of the ship was built and tested, and with performance data in, fleet command gave the go-ahead to begin production. Its first missions were a sucsess, and the ships fell into common use. Currently, fleet command plans to retire the vessels to more mundane duties pending further advances, but even then it should prove usefull to the fleet.
