The Colonial Guardian is a type ship in the Battlestar Hyperion Series written by Jim Quigley.


Guardian Class Escort

The Colonial Guardian is mostly relegated to in-system and shipping lane patrol duty and is usually the first line of defense against attacks. Though they are not designed for prolonged combat, their speed gives them the ability to escape all but the fastest ships. In fleet actions they are typically used as fast destroyers, hunting targets alone or in packs.
