The G'Quan-class Heavy Cruiser is a fictional starship in the Babylon 5 universe.

Depiction

A G'Quan-class cruiser is immense ship armed with two heavy hard-mounted forward-firing laser cannons, two energy mine launchers and Pulse cannons. The G'Quan was designed to replace the older, more haphazardly designed T'Loth cruiser, which was last seen in 2258.

The G'Quan-class cruiser does not have artificial gravity.[3]The cruiser's powerful forward laser cannons can slice an opposing vessel's hull into pieces, and are strong enough to damage even the ancient warships of the Shadows.[4]

The great majority of the G'Quan-class cruisers were destroyed during the Narn-Centauri War. The greatest losses came at the Battle of Gorash 7, which was an attempt by the Narn to destroy the main Centauri supply base on a planet called Gorash 7. A fleet of Shadow vessels intercepted the Narn armada and completely annihilated it.[4] However, a few Narn cruisers managed to survive the war, and they played a key role in the war against the Shadows.[4][5][6] After Narn was liberated from Centauri rule in 2261, the Narns quickly began to rebuild their fleet, and within a few years many new G'Quan-class cruisers had been placed into service.
