[Future Perfect] Bison Ship-of-the-Line

The Bison was a heavy frigate in development by the Imperial Government at the time of the Regents’ ascendance to power. Due to increasing pressure from Alliance incursions, especially along the Frontier, the Bison’s designs were completed per the Regency’s adjusted specifications. Some of these adjustments included increased thrust and a standard AI system (nearly identical to the type integrated into the Gallardo Battlecruiser, considered by some to be the Bison’s sister ship). Capable of existing independently for extended campaigns, the Bison often holds its own as a support vessel for ground assault operations, maintaining a low-orbit while Dropships hit a world’s surface. But where the Bison really shines is along a defensible line, often being used as the final word against blockade runners and illicit freight rushers needing to reach a fixed destination. Put the Bison where it needs to be and leave it there; once in place, this Ship-of-the-line can handle itself.
