Technical Details[edit | edit source]
The main capital ship of the Minbari fleet, the Sharlin's stealth systems give it an advantage over the scanning and tracking systems that when active it would prevent some of the races from achieving a positive weapons lock. The Sharlin is also equipped with advanced scanners so powerful that when set to maximum have been known to interfere with the electronics aboard less advanced starships, effectively jamming their systems.
