As a Terran Federation politician put it, "The Liberty-class won the war in nine months." The unbelievable versatile nature of the Liberty-class from Assault Ship to Heavy Frigate to Cargo Vessel to Hospital Ship provides a unlimited future for the ship that has now become the new work horse of the Federal Navy and the Terran Federation. The future for the Liberty-class is limitless.
"Designed to be a dedicated assault ship to land thousands of troops, equipment, supplies, and give them the tactical orbital support, base of operations, and other logistical support that a D-class Destroyer could simply not provide---since they were not designed for such a mission profile---the Liberty-class gave the Terran Federation the tactical advantage, finally, over the Sethas and Po'leks in terms of ground combat and planetary siege warfare."

Special Design Features
"With highly sophisticated sensors and communications, a single Liberty-class Assault Ship could act as a mobile command post for a world-wide invasion and often surpassed Super Carriers in command post roles during planetary invasions."
"Powerful orbital bombardments with heavy turbolasers and multiple missile packages ensured even the strongest of Fortress Worlds didn't stand a chance. After a bloody onslaught of firepower to reduce defenses to rubble, the Liberty-class would deploy it's formidable ground forces. Able to enter the atmosphere of a planet, the Assault Ships could deploy forces both from a orbital deployment with space-capable craft and by opening it's own belly cargo bays in the skies of a planet and unleashing numerous ground forces."
"While supporters of the Configurate D-class Destroyer and her earlier models will stand-by the fact that---and history would agree---that the Destroyer line was the work horse of the Terran Federation, no one will deny the Liberty-class's impact on the war, even during it's last stages of bloody warfare."
