The Praxeum-class Strike Cruiser was a type of heavy cruiser in service to the Black Star Confederacy from 14 ABY
During the latter stages of the Durgasi Conflict, it became apparent that the aging Njord-class Cruiser - and to a degree, the Skaadi-class Cruisers simply did not have the necessary firepower to deal with larger enemy ships. The solution was the Praxeum-class Strike Cruiser. Originally designed for use by Confederate Intelligence, the introduction of the Praxeum resulted in a halt of the production of Njord and Skaadi-class cruisers, in favor of the Praxeum Strike Cruiser.
The Praxeum used several innovations (at least compared to the rest of the Confederate Navy). First and foremost, the hangars of the Praxeum were located in the prow. The sheer size of the hangar entrance enabled the vessel to launch all of its fighters at once. Secondly, it carried an entire squadron of Intruder Assault Boats. Thirdly, the Praxeum replaced the usual laser cannons with point defense laser cannons, which at the time of the introduction of this class was an experimental system. And finally, it was powered by an antimatter reactor.
In 17 ABY, it was upgraded with a BioComp.
