The bulky Praetorian-class is an old but yet powerful Dreadnaught. While small compared to contemporary battleships, this ship was a persistent and reliable combat vessel in the old times, although in through the first two decades of the 25th century (UPT) it gave way for more advanced cruisers such as the Inferno or the Phoenix Cruiser. Yet still today a few Pretorians are in sevice, mainly in less populated sectors, most of them belonging to private owners who often keep them as flagships to their personal fleets.
The Praetorian's spacious hangar can hold a squadron of starfighters for additional defense, since the majority of its weaponry is desgned for heavy combat against other capital ships rather than anti-fighter combat.
