- "It could be the most fearsome ship in the navy, but it has been months of horrendous teething issues. Maybe one day, I’ll actually get to see one fight!"
- ―Vice Admiral Jose Elizondo
Intended to replace line cruisers, the Cannae-class Cruiser is an advanced cruiser pattern, armed with new weapons and engines, intended to make new and lethal vessels. Despite initial optimism, the ship’s advanced systems have been hampered by teething issues between separate manufacturers of the ship, reactor, and weapon systems. Initially crippled by potentially lethal issues such as weapon system failure, power loss, and dangerous heat build up have forced it to be revised, delayed, and re-enter ship trials.
With the majority of teething issues behind it, the ship has entered combat operations, albeit several years after its projected launch, and in smaller numbers. Even now, the ship has difficulty shaking its history as an unreliable vessel, and despite its stellar combat performance, an omen of bad luck hangs over it.
