The Everest class Frigate is actually built on the lines of the Odyssey Light Cruiser and in fact rumors persist that the company had the plans for the Odyssey they used those to create the base for this vessel. That said, the Everest are combat vessels unlike the Odyssey, so there are no research labs or advanced astronomical facilities and the vessel is somewhat smaller. The end result was a solid combat craft along similar lines as that design, though it was produced later and so used a more advanced LGS.
The Everest class Frigates are armed with 6 Railgun Turrets, with three on each side of the ship, and 12 Light Laser Turrets, with six on top and six on the bottom of the hull. The upper hull has eight independent missile tubes in retractable launchers, the downside is the small number of reloads. This provides good coverage into all arcs around the ship, and stand-off fire ability.
A single cargo bay offers access to the ship to small shuttles or allows a single fighter to be stored. However launching from the bay is basically impossible, except for the set of internal escape pods which launcher through this access door.
