History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Designed and built at Jaradin for the Unity of Sed. These ships operate within the Far Home Sector. They carry almost enough lowberths for a full low watch. These have often been used to transport additional psionic fanatics, which are too dangerous to leave conscious. These special forces are unleashed on unsuspecting targets and can be quite shocking, disproportional with their numbers.
