History & Background (Dossier)

Designed by budding starship architect Senior Scout Gevaudan Cannagrrh from a previous Imperial Far Scout template, this variant class was first launched from Lunion (world) in 1110. Though the Extents Vargr coveted the blueprints he has drafted, contracted Ling Standard Products recorded every phase of the first model to be constructed as the last of the Fifth Frontier War dwindled.

Captained by Gevaudan Cannagrrh, the Sixth Horizon was taken coreward to his home in Gvurrdon Sector. On board were his elder sister, the Dame Qithka Cannagrrh and her attaché Uthka Varzeekh. As the Fast Far Scout passed through Pandrin (world), two Servitor robots designated Vincent and Bob were purchased. The vessel was logged for its first maintenance in Triad (world) as the Extents Vargr traveled coreward toward their home in the Dzen Aeng Kho or Society of Equals.

A related vessel is the Vraktagh 6H class Far Scout
