History and specifications
Like its parent design, the Yamato-class was armed with a phaser spinal lance and could be equipped with a cloaking device. It also featured supplemental subsystems that could supply the vessel with extra power for short periods, as well as a hangar bay capable of deploying small craft into combat.

The name Yamato-class appears to be a double reference, both to the USS Yamato, lost with all hands to the Iconian software weapon in 2365, and to the space opera anime series Space Battleship Yamato wherein the World War II Japanese battleship Yamato was raised, repaired, and fitted with a "wave motion gun" to do battle in space.
