The Exofrigate was a slow unarmored ship originally developed to provide moderate protection against raids from Pirate Clans on orbital space stations within Homeworlds controlled space. Their chief merit was that they were cheap.
Most ExoFrigates were armed with laser cannons with later models acquiring cloaking technology from the Pirate Clans. The lack of protection made Exofrigates particularly vulnerable and many were destroyed, especially during the Pirate Clans War and the Neosapien War, with great loss of life.
