Cruisers are among the most powerful starships in the Federation arsenal. These powerful starships are usually more heavily armed than other similarly sized ships. Built for combat, they often carry marines and are less suited for scientific roles. Cruisers are often deployed on missions where a show of force is necessary, although destroyers and ships-of-the-line may also serve in this role as well.
