The Annic Nova class Far Trader is a relic from an earlier time.

  • The tech level of the vessel is not known, though a minimum of TL-12 can be guessed at due to the jump capability of one of the two jump drives.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The Annic Nova class Far Trader has the following features:

  • The Annic Nova has no maneuver drive of its own, instead it uses pinnaces as tugs for limited maneuvering capability (0.1G).
  • There are two jump drives onboard: One capable of Jump-2 and the other Jump-3.
  • There is no power plant, using a Collector canopy which collects radiated stellar power and stores it in the accumulators on the drive deck.
  • This Collector canopy cannot be deployed during any maneuvering or when the vessel enters, exits or is within jumpspace.
  • There are six six hard points, two of which are mounted with turrets bearing a single pulse laser, in addition to four single missile racks mounted in the aft-hub, each with a single audio-visual relay drone-missile in each rack.
