 The Omega-class was the newest line of capital-scale military vessel Earth produced after the Earth-Minbari War. Desperate for a heftier defense, Earthforce contracted out the production of the Omegas to a major production firm. Work orders were given to several facilities, to avoid having all ship under construction vulnerable to attack. Omega Construction Group 1 produced the first Omega-class vessel, the EAS Achilles, in record time. Currently, over 200 Omegas serve Earthforce. Up until 2259, then Clark assumed the Alliance presidency, all Earthforce vessels were usually named for figures from Greek mythology. Current nomenclature has turned toward more conventional names.

 The Omega-class can carry two full squadrons of Starfury fighters, or one and one-half squadrons of Thunderbolt fighters. In addition to the fighters, the Omega carries two shuttles for passenger and cargo transfers.
