The Bloodshield was an ancient Alsakani warship.


Some historians believed that the Bloodshield had held the appropriate qualifications to be deemed a battlecruiser under the Anaxes War College System of starship classification. One being size, the other being function. However, most historians disagreed, and they instead contended that the Kuat Drive Yards Procurator-class Star Battlecruisers were the first vessels that could be considered battlecruisers.
