The Chercheur class Fleet Dispatch Courier is a warship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

This long range Jump-5, combat scout represents the only dedicated message delivery and scouting assets the Strend Navy has. As a result destroyers which are more numerous are pressed into roles which don't suit them. Coordination between squadrons is often poor as a result. When attacking the navy tends to mass and arrive together. This makes them predicatable and easier to avoid. This ship is armed but not well armored and its massive model/8 fib ship computer robs its agility.
