The Nova class dreadnought, sometimes referred to as a battleship, is an immense Earth Alliance warship designed to bring massive firepower against any target, countering the Star Destroyers. This vessel is one of the older classes alongside the Hyperion-class heavy cruiser and shares a similar basic design as the much later Omega-class destroyer. The ship is capable of generating its own jump point to enter hyperspace, but unlike equivalent vessels of some of the other races, did not originally have artificial gravity for its crew and passengers (see below). This limited long deployments, and necessitated regular crew changes to counter the effects of Zero gravity conditions, other measures such as rigorous zero-gee exercises only going so far.
