The Surveyor-class reconnaissance frigate was an Imperial scout craft manufactured by Kuat Drive Yards for the Imperial Navy. It was based on the Active-class fast attack frigate, with a hull that resembled that of the Vindicator-class heavy cruisers, while the bridge and primary sensor arrays were in a structure resembling the bridge of a Bellator-class dreadnought.
The vessel carried both a full squadron of starfighters and a decent armament for a craft its size, but its primary mission remained reconnaissance. To support these efforts the class was equipped with powerful sensors and signal interception systems along with a stealth system that aided in concealing the frigate's location even while active scanners were in use.
