The Thuverl Dalem is an older Zentraedi Cruiser made obsolete by the Salan
class introduced in 1560. About two-thirds of the size of the Salan Class, the Dalem is still
relatively well armed with batteries of laser, torpedo and missile turrets. As a sign of its
place in the older fleet, the Dalem mounts a Nabrilla 253 Cannon, an anti-ship laser in use
prior to the advent of the Deim Particle Cannon line. Compared to the Salan, the Dalem houses
only half of the mecha of the later ship, able to deploy both battlepods of aerospace fighters.
A single orbital dropship provides the means to deploy its full battlepod complement to the
planet's surface. Though production of the class was ceased soon after the Salan's introduction,
the Dalem stayed in active service because of its potency vessel. Its is believed that few are
still in active service, and only within the rogue fleets.
