The Gishiash class Stealth Scout is a spy starship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

This vessel is equipped with an advanced electronics, stealth hull, and jump, this ship is designed to see and not be seen. Based on the standard Type, the main external difference is the large bulge house the survey suite, an unusual piece of equipment to be on such a small ship. Additional crew facilities and comforts allow the crew to remain on station for long periods of time, without boredom and monotony becoming an issue. [1]

  • Usual missions involve covert intelligence gathering or the insertion/retrieval of covert teams. The IISS will often use the Gishiash for observing new species where direct contact would be dangerous to the scout team. After observing the species for a time, a decision will be made to contact the species or not. [2]
  • The Navy has some of these units also, employed as scouts or electronic warfare ships, often stripping internal fittings for additional armour. [3]
  • Normal crew consists of a pilot, navigator/sensor specialist, engineer, Gunner and Engineer with room for 4 passengers in cold berths. [4]
