History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The jump 5 range is the whole point of this design and all other considerations were secondary in its design. The model 9 fib computer is shoehorned into this compact hull and its energy draw deprive the vessel of agility. The computer is linked to advanced sensor bays and a powerful suite of meson communication links to keep fleet communication secure.
