History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The Unholy Exile class Trader class is used by outcasts among the Tenjada Moralitate's civilians. They carry a very advanced computer to provide the best ECM suite. They are faster than all naval vessels except the thrice cursed Holdemar class Destroyers. They are streamlined to take advantage of hiding spots where fleet vessels can not follow. The weapons are used to buy just enough time to allow escape. Most high church clergy deny that this class exists.
