Description[edit]

Designed and built for the Council of Heads, vast numbers of these crude craft patrol the Schepehyrd (Hanstone 2214 A988765-7) system. Manned by patriotic, if naive crew. The courageous members of the space patrol are proud of their craft. Commissioned by the Council Military Advisory Committee and assembled at the vast, yet primative boatyards. This streamlined steel armored needle/wedge craft is armored and carries six, independently targetable pulse lasers. It has thorium fission reactors, fuel cells, and solar panels for power. A nuclear plasma rocket accelerates it to 2Gs. It carries a squad of marines and a spare model 2fib computer. They are limited in acceleration and agility by their technology level. These rugged and durable ships are forced to use numbers to compensate for their lack of offensive firepower.
