The Vorchan-class medium warship is a class of Centauri warship in the fictional universe of Babylon 5.

Depiction[edit]

The most recent warship designed by the Centauri Republic, the Vorchan is extremely fast and maneuverable, although it's not very well armed and armoured for its class.[1] The Vorchan is capable of creating its own hyperspace jump points,[1] and it is capable of flying in a planetary atmosphere.[4] Its primary weapons are two twin plasma accelerators, which are capable of destroying larger warships of other races (such as the Narn G'Quan-Class cruiser) in just a few hits.[3] Even the extremely advanced White Star vessels are vulnerable to the Vorchan's plasma cannon fire.[2]
