- For other uses, see Regent.
The Regent-class was similar to its parent design in most respects but featured stronger deflector shields. Armament improvements included a forward quantum torpedo launcher capable of firing up to 90° off-axis from the ship's forward movement, enabling it to hit targets with torpedoes and its full broadside of phaser arrays simultaneously.
The Regent-class was also equipped with canisters of metreon gas that could be vented from the ship's Bussard collectors, standardizing a tactic pioneered by then-Commander William T. Riker against the Son'a in the Briar Patch in 2375. When ignited by weapons fire, the gas produced a tremendous explosion. (ST video game: Star Trek Online)
