International Organization for Standardization. And before you ask, it's not supposed to be an acronym.

High Guard ships are technically of Vedran (and therefor alien) design.
  • The titular ship from Andromeda is—along with most of the other ships in the Home Guard fleet—a huge aversion of this. Colorful, shiny, curvaceous, and almost frail-looking. The background materials took care to explain this, in that generally the only thing to get through its defense net to hull proximity would be a guided kinetic weapon. 'Frail' structures provide less of a target, more opportunity to deflect the weapon, and less mass to get turned into high-energy plasma by a successful strike.
