    Description and History

    At roughly 300 meters in length, the Meltran Picket is the smallest Meltrandi ship of the line and possibly the smallest capital ship among either the Meltrandi or Zentradi fleets. The Meltran Picket acts as a forward line of any Meltrandi fleet to which it is attached, helping to warn accompanying vessels of enemy movements.
