The modular design of the Wizards allows for different types of engineering and weapons systems to be installed and tested. The modularity enabled field tests of systems without using and risking a ship of the line.
Ships of this class have an advanced computer automation system that allows the ship to be flown either via a program or remotely via the use of a ship's unique prefix code. During testing, a ship is escorted by a fully armed and capable vessel.
Registries for these vessels are always preceded by the NX (Naval Experimental) prefix. (FASA RPG: Stardate 8: "Jaynz Ships of the Galaxy — Wizard Class Ships")
- The registry numbers given in the article conflict with established registries for some Hermes-class scouts.
