These are lightly armored, streamlined needle/wedge configuration hulls fitted with fuel scoops and on board purification for wilderness ocean refueling operations. She is rated for 6 G acceleration and has 4 agility with a model 6 fib computer mounted adjacent to the bridge. She carries enough internal fuel capacity for a jump2 with a jump 1 reserve and is routinely fitted with a jump 2 drop tank for extended raiding operations.

Armed with two triple missile turrets, two triple beam laser turrets, and a dual fusion gun turret, it can deal with fighters and lighter enemy vessels.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Designed and built by Pador. A Pador Military Forces destroyer escort design, built at the famous orbital shipyards of Pador. It took 80 weeks to build the prototype, and the production models require 64 weeks to fit out and test.

They typically conduct system patrols, escort minor trade conveys, pursue pirate corsairs, and conduct reconnaissance missions.

Distant Fringe Vessels[edit]

The Distant Fringe is said to be a far spinward-rimward area inhabited by colonists and refugees originating on Terra. The region is extremely isolated, separated from the rest of Charted Space by vast, almost uncrossable rifts that were once broached by a system of calibration Points and the use of tankers. Those few academics within Charted Space who have found references to the Distant Fringe regard it as little more than a tall tale. Likewise, many of the inhabitants of the Distant Fringe believe the existence of Charted Space to be mythical.[3]

Vessels originating within the Distant Fringe are very rarely encountered outside of the region. However, misjumps do occur and anomalies with bizarre spacetime and Jumpspace effects exist: as such, craft of this type are not entirely unknown within Charted Space.[4]

Class Naming Practice/s & Peculiarities[edit]

Each vessel within the class is named by the government of the state that produces it. They generally draw on traditional naming protocols and it is not uncommon for a historical class name to be reused.

  • Individual vessels within the class are issued specific serial numbers and transponder codes.
  • Naming a ship is considered a serious affair and is generally accompanied by a traditional ceremony, usually pouring a local beverage over the bows of the craft. Starfarers tend to be superstitious folk and a ship with a frivolous name is considered "unlucky".
