The Normandy-class Frigate is a 'deep scout' frigate, co-developed by the Alliance and the Turian Hierarchy with the sponsorship of the Citadel Council. It is optimized for solo reconnaissance missions deep within unstable regions, using state-of-the-art stealth technology powered by an experimental drive core. Commissioned in 2183, the 'SSV Normandy' was initially commanded by an Alliance officer named Elli Zander. After Zander came into conflict with turian chief engineer Octavio Tatum over the limits of the ship's drive core, Zander was removed and David Anderson placed in command. Shortly thereafter, the Normandy was handed over to Commander Shepard when the Commander became the first human Spectre, and served as Shepard's main source of transportation and base of operations. The Normandy-class' IES (internal emission sink) stealth system is its most notable feature. For centuries, it was assumed that starship stealth was impossible. The heat generated by routine shipboard operations is easily detectable against the near absolute zero background temperature of space. The Normandy, however, is able to temporarily "store" this heat in lithium heat sinks deep within the hull. The system is powered by an experimental piece of equipment called the 'Tantalus' Drive Core which is, proportionally, about twice the size of any other ship's core.


Normandy-classes come equipped with standard kinetic barriers and average strength armor. They come equipped with a spinal mounted mass accelerator cannon and two Javelin disruptor torpedo launchers mounted between the 'wings' of the vessel. The experimental 'Tantalus' drive core powers the ship along with two state-of-the-art fusion plants. A network of GARDIAN lasers defends the ships from fighter and missile based attacks. Some captains have mounted 'Thanix' cannons on their ships to augment their destructive power.
