The Saber Class is small, fast, nimble and heavily armed. Some in Starfleet have objected to the class designation, arguing the Saber Class is closer to an Escort Type vessel than a Light Cruiser. In 2347 the Starfleet was reorganized, and the old Destroyer Type vessels were renamed "Escort Type", to satisfy a then-growing trend of pacifism in the Fleet Command structure. The Saber Class, indeed, fills the role of a Destroyer, or, an Escort. Escort Type vessels in Starfleet are not intended to be multirole, but have only one true purpose: Defense. However, due to the Saber's design flexibility and status as a multirole starship, the designation Light Cruiser still remains. There are one hundred and fourteen Sabers in operation.
