The SNV (Space Navy Vessel) Kayeri Vaj is the first - and to date only - Slethi (Winged-Torturer) class frigate of High Orion design, built using the same technology and aesthetics as the Orion Space Navy's (OSN) first construction, the Morakos-class SNV Thana Vaneri. Following the destruction of the Narris II shipyards, plans for a second Morakos-class vessel was put on hold due to the lack of facilities and resources. The Tabadi's Circle elected not to cease production entirely during the rebuilding of the shipyards and decided to create the Kayeri Vaj, a smaller (and thus cheaper) vessel in the new Orion style. This new ship bears the visually attractive exterior and interior decoration of the Thana Vaneri but streamlines the layout for its function as a warship.


Boasting firepower equivalent to that of a Defiant-class escort, the SNV Kayeri Vaj is a force to be reckoned with despite its small size. In addition to its armaments, this particular vessel is equipped with a powerful deflector array of unknown alien origin, salvaged from one of the ships that attacked Narris II. The alien deflector can manipulate its environment to a magnitude equal to if not greater than that of modern Starfleet designs, and combined with the relatively low power output of a frigate, allows signature masking to be much more effective. This makes up for what the Kayeri Vaj lacks in durability. Unlike the larger Thana Vaneri, it is also capable of landing if the need arises. For special situations, the Kayeri Vaj also carries an Armoured Remote Controlled (ARC) Rover.

The ARC Rover is an all-terrain ground vehicle/hovercraft hybrid with significantly less bulk than a shuttlecraft so it can be stored within the frigate's cargo bay. As its name suggests, the Rover is usually remotely controlled though it can carry passengers and even be piloted manually should there be signal issues.
